MY BEST LIE

The best lie that I every told
It was the last thing I told you
When I stuck out my chin and said
I didn't care if you left again

When you didn't come back
My words fell apart
It was like a cheap watch when it hits the floor

But no one got to see that
No one got to see that
You never got to see right through my best lie

I spoke without thinking, it was rude and it was simple
Straight from my fears to the tip of my tongue
From the moment I said it, I wish I hadn't
But you can't take back what's been done

The best lie that I every told, it was the last lie I told you
I stuck out my chin, said I didn't care if you left again
When that screen door slammed, my words fell apart
It was like a cheap watch when it hits the floor

That was my best lie
