in a small moment lyrics – carly simon

(carly simon)

in a small moment
she accepted credit for something she did not do
she said she’d done the water color in her bedroom
but it was done by a friend from school
just a little lie
no one would discover
at least not very soon

in a small moment
just a little lie
when she wasn’t looking it just slipped on by

in a small moment
in a restaurant where she worked the late night shift
she short changed a sailor and made five
you could never really call it a theft
just a little lie
swept up in her apr*n and kept as a well deserved gift
in a small moment
just a little lie
when she wasn’t looking it just slipped on by

in a small moment
she cheated on her lover and placed it in the back of her mind
as long as n*body knew the truth about her
it could never really be unkind
just a little lie
that slipped beside her as she tossed and turned in her alibis

in a small moment
just a little lie
when she wasn’t looking it just slipped on by
just a little lie
when she wasn’t looking it jsut slipped on by
slipped on by
