Lie To Me - Poem by Edwina Reizer

Lie to me. Tell me what I want to hear
'cause the truth just hurts too much.
Lie to me. Give me words insincere,
like you love me and my touch.

And even if I feel that they're not true
without these words what will I do?
I've heard them for so long a time from you
and still they make me feel brand new.

When I hear them whispered in my ear
I can pretend they're not lies that I hear.
So lie to me. Tell me lies.
I do not need to sympathize
and make myself come undone.
I just pretend that you still care
and strip my pride, strip it bare
and believe all the lies,
every last one.

So lie to me, my love.
