The Donnies The Amys – I Told A Lie lyrics

Carried away all night long
Leave the windows open, leave the TV on
Try not to wake the talking heads
The couch is warm but too short for your long legs

I told a lie
I told a lie
I saw my mouth was moving, I don't know why

Follow the slow siren song
I am open to it only when I'm alone
The saltwater sting far from shore
Full of brackish blood I'm not an island anymore
I'm ready now

I told a lie
I told a lie
I saw my mouth was moving I don't know why
I made it up
I made it up
And all of my excuses are great enough

Phony little houses
I'm waiting in the yard
You're watching from the window
I'm hiding in the covers I find

All ready now All right
