Built To Spill - Lie For A Lie Lyrics

I can see a storm awaiting
Quietly anticipating
Don't deny, it no debating

A lie for a lie
A truth for a truth

Cruel, but everybody does it
I thought by now I'd rise above it
You complain but don't discuss it

A lie for a lie
A truth for a truth

I know the thoughts are on your brain
And even if they're not the same
Close enough so don't explain

A lie for a lie
A truth for a truth

Once in a while there's this girl I don't know in my dreams
She reminds me of alot of people
She's someone that I've never seen
And she's perfect

'Kay begin...
...some inaudible screaming

  1. Ash Stoecklin

    I remember idd be sitting in the back of my dad's car with my little brother on the way to skaters edge skate park looking out the window and seeing all hope I had for my future grasping the moment with teared up eyes before I shred the gnar on independence trucks. "once and a while theirs this girl I don't know in my dreams, she reminds me of a lot of people that I've never seen and she's perfect" will keep me to the next day until I see her.. one day
