Clear Sky

I just told you
What amounts to a pack of lies
To help her to get through
The demons she tries to hide
They say the truth can’t hurt
And the silence sometimes can
Ripping me apart
Slowly

Pride builds upon the notion
That is the discipline of you
To tell the truth places barriers
Against everything we love and do
Me knowing things you should never know until the day she dies
It seems your life just balancing
Upon her frightened next to best
Her life

For this deepest insincerity
I can only apologise
Truth be met when nothing’s left
Her lies are the only ones I’ve told you
My love and deepest respect in fact
Is in the openness I share with you
I am what I am that I am
In love
