heartfelt lies lyrics – ron pope

i walk by the river’s edge
skipping smooth wet stones and watching them sink
i never was a fan of innocence
i’ve got two black eyes and an empty fifth of gin

and i see i’m wrong for you but we tried
you swear i’m hard to lay beside
if i was you i’d run from me most nights
maybe i was meant to be left behind

thundering circ*mstances beyond our control rumble in
counting time by the lines ’round your eyes
as your gentle caress helps me forget

and i think it’s time to say good night
and you swear i’m hard to lay beside
now years seem to p*ss as we blink our eyes
maybe i was meant to be left behind by all of our heartfelt lies
all of our heartfelt lies
all our heartfelt lies are not enough this time

and i see
i’d love to spend the night but you found someone else to lay beside
and i know it makes sense but it’s like sand in my eyes
maybe i was meant to be left behind
