Sink with the tide
I'll be leaving it all up to you
It's o.k. to be lied to
People say to me it's best that we've parted
Don't explain to me how you're so broken hearted
Ending each night with such honest goodbyes
Honest goodbyes only work once or twice
Then the rest must be lies
And the music is gone from the moon
What use is the rhyme with no tune
And nothing is carved out in stone
It's late now and time that we go
Such honest goodbyes for the last time
They work once or twice
The rest must be lies
The rest must be lies
The rest must be lies
The rest must be lies
