The Lie

from Painted Sky by Schweitzer



You look so peaceful sleepin' there
Like the halo of an angel on your pillow lays your hair
I never thought I'd say the things I'm gonna say to you
I hope that somewhere in your heart you don't believe it's true

I don't love you, never did
You were just too wonderful for me to commit
We were a mistake I knew you'd fix later on
No I don't love you so you shouldn't feel bad movin' on

There was an accident tonight
And I begged the ghost that came to take me just to say goodbye
You can't hear me now but you'll remember what I say
And you won't understand but I hope it's better this way

I don’t love you… never did

I turned around and flew across the stars to my new home
And I saw my Savior sitting on the edge of his throne
He said, "I forgive you, I know why you lied"
So I'll spend the rest of her life just sittin' by his side, singing...

Lord I loved her, always did
She was just too wonderful, I thought she was your gift
Promise she'll remember me, when she comes home
and that I love her, so she shouldn't feel bad movin' on
