  • Mood:

tales about my past

I lie about my secrets

I've wandered out at midnight
and danced right down the stairs
and wakened in the evening
with flowers in my hair.

I tell you all my secrets,
but lie about my youth
and each and every secret
contains a grain of truth.

I've stood upon the cliff's edge
and watched the eagles glide
while I leaned into the wind
and threw my arms out wide.

I've danced in fancy ballrooms,
in back of dingy bars,
danced out in the parking lot
and gone to sleep in cars.

I've shared my every secret
but lied throughout the course
to hide the face of my life -
its quiet, dark, remorse

So when you think about me
think on my clever tales
and fondly think on good times -
my laugh that never fails.
