LITTLE WHITE LIES

We met on open streets where we both had no place to go
I remember how my heart beat when you said "Oh Billy I love you so"
Now, standing in the doorway, did you ever think that we could look this old
Victims of the little white lies that we told

We did not count tomorrows, we took what we could and ran
There was no time for sorrow, every place you went I held your hand
And when the night closed in I was sure your kisses told me all I had to know
But they never whispered the little white lies that we told

It was so good at the start, nothing could ever pull it apart
Running hand in hand through the rain, but soon the heart break, soon the pain, girl
There were no cold denials, nobody really lied
It wasn't in the things we said, girl, just time spent, promises implied
And when it began to fall apart eaten quietly away from the inside
Bit by bit by those little white lies

Hey!
Now standing in the doorway, did you ever think, ever think that we could look this old
Victims of the little white lies that we told
Now lying here in the dark, did you ever think, ever think that we could be this cold
Just as cold as the little white lies that we told

Little white lies
