The Living Lies

the world of make-believe
was an ecstasy of love to live

with dreams shattered forever
in broken promises that linger

words so sweet and so tender
with love, we could not surrender

yet the truth behind is in silence
a word uttered makes no difference

you are the living lie that lies herein
between the heart and the soul within

to fool the thoughts without an end
with all the sweet love to send

but like the sound of a song in the air
one day it will not be there to hear

gone along with the wind of gust
blown away like a golden dust

priced preciously with time unfold
with all the stories of love left untold
