Fox Stevenson - Perfect Lie Lyrics




It's been a long time coming
But I wish it took longer
We did what we could with all the stuff that we had
We spent summers living in stereo
Driving to songs that we hate on the radio
Yeah, we had it good for a while until we ran outta gas

We used to sing
"What have we done?
This is a perfect lie
We did everything wrong
But we turned out alright
What have we done?
This is a perfect lie"
I never thought it would've ended like this

We used to sing
"What have we done?
This is a perfect lie
We did everything wrong
But we turned out alright
What have we done?
This is a perfect lie"
I never thought it would've ended like this

Five years on, I sometimes wonder what you're doing
I don't want you back
It'd just be nice to know
For a moment we had something beautiful
I won't hold it against you, I never could
We both knew this couldn't last
I'm glad we gave it a go

We used to sing
"What have we done?
This is a perfect lie
We did everything wrong
But we turned out alright
What have we done?
This is a perfect lie"
I never thought it would've ended like this

I never thought it would've ended like this

Fox Stevenson Perfect Lie Comments
  1. Carya A

    Something different than your other tracks, but I really enjoy this one<3

  2. Steve Menkins

    This is probably the most deeply relatable song I have ever heard. Every. Single Word.

    And then there's the MELODY! My feelings don't know how to feel and its BEAUTIFUL.

  3. driftingaway

    pure bliss

  4. Callisto Music

    Discussion starter: the old ID of this song had different lyrics. If you don’t know, ID kitty from the 2014 mix said “you can say what you want for yourself. You know you gotta be on your own to thrive. That’s wrong, you’ll see. You don’t have to be lonely to feel alive.”
    Now the song seems to have a different theme, I wonder if the meaning has changed through the writing process. The old chorus also said “this is a perfect life” not lie. Fox said all his lyrics are personal, what do you guys reckon?

  5. AUGSOME

    Couldn't believe my eyes when this popped up in my sub box! Now we just need another way down

  6. Kirza

  18. Wolsk

    Been waiting for this one ever since I heard it in "Bring it on 2014"! Still praying for "Another Way Down" someday.

  19. Senglide

    This is just incredible... You turned it into a masterpiece Stanley, thank you for that!

  20. C1U7CH 24

    Somehow, Stan always has the right song for the right moment. If I'm going through problems in a relationship, just throw on one of his many albums about that. If I feel like I just wanna burn some cities to the ground, he has at least half a dozen songs to satiate that feeling. And if I just wanna unwind, I can put on his "All This Time" album. You really never can go wrong with Stan. Keep up the good work, my man! I'm rooting for you, along with the rest of us!

  21. General Cheese Man

    Wow this is really different from the original, it sounds awesome though, def my favorite

  22. Cyaanidde

  46. EthanatorPlyz

    Amazing song, keep up the amazing work. So hyped for the show on the 15th of November!

    EthanatorPlyz

    Holy, I just realized that this is his 10th year making music. That's insane man.

  47. FastestClassic

    Absolutely incredible. The moment I heard the melody from the Kitty ID, my jaw dropped to the floor (and stayed there, well beyond the end of the track!). Such a beautiful (and emotional) transformation, from an already-tremendous ID. You've come a long way, Stan! ♥️

  48. Charles Sorden

    I’m so happy and excited to listen to this album before I go to basic. Stan you’re amazing

  49. Shineko

    Hell yeah, finally another song, thank Fox ^^

  50. DANNYonPC

    After all those years, Kitty is finally here!

    BlitheFurry

    Finally

    Mark Bosgra

    I think its funny how the kitty version has more views on youtube than this original one :')

  51. Ironsecret

    Such a diffrent song, but a great sound nonetheless!

    BlitheFurry

    I'm not sure which one I liked better!

  52. Ben Turton

    BEAUTIFUL STAN!

  53. Anna Capdevila

    So beautiful it kind of reminds me those thimes that you're kind of hapoy but you feel somethig is missing.

    EthanatorPlyz

    Yea, it really does

  54. Justin Schmidt

    that would have been a perfect summer song... :)
