The lie of our lives

by Rachel E F Allen   May 8, 2005

All dressed up in gold and cream
Feeling trapped like I need to scream
Taking my friend on the day of my lie
Kissing my open heart goodbye
Making the promise from my lying heart
Being dishonest right from the start
Why do I do this get myself in this mess
To keep others happy inside I guess
How can I lie to you when I want to back out
My voice cannot open you won’t hear me shout
I will bury my feelings deep inside me its true
And I will carry on smiling and say I do
I will try to support you in everything
Internal screaming through the hymns we sing
Smiles on the outside what is expected of me
My fake happy family for all to see
I will make my speech declaring undying
But I’m sorry my friend my heart is lying
I will try to be good to you and love
I will draw strength to make this work from above
I will always love you but in love I cannot be
And the sad thing is you feel the same about me
Our first dance, our first kiss, warms their hearts
The biggest lie of our lives, here is where it starts
