The Lies We Tell

Rating: 5.0
Being a good person will take you far
Like one wheeled bicycles and dead battery cars

If you do your best things will turn out fine
Like gas on fires and bread with no yeast

Those jeans still fit
Like my hand in yours and yoga pants on a fat girl

Falling in love is fabulous
Like smelly garbage trucks and moldy fruit

Falling out of love is easy
Like rocket science and scaling cliffs

If you love someone they will love you back
Like cats love dogs and gay men love straight women

Like you love me….
