Bed Of Lies

matchbox twenty

 

No I would not sleep in this bed of lies
So toss me out and turn in
And thereíll be no rest for these tired eyes
Iím marking it down to learning
I am

Donít think that I can take another empty moment
Donít think that I can fake another hollow smile
Itís not enough just to be sorry.
Donít think that I could take another talk about it

Just like me you got needs
And theyíre only a whisper away
And we softly surrender
To these lives that weíve tendered away

No I would not sleep in this bed of lies
So toss me out and turn in
And theyíll be no rest for these tired eyes
Iím marking it down to learning
I am

Donít wanna be the one who turns the whole thing over
Donít wanna be somewhere where I just donít belong
Where itís not enough just be sorry

Donít you know I feel the darkness closing in
Tried to be more than me
And I gave ítil it all went away
And weíve only surrendered
To the worst part of these winters weíve made

I am all that Iíll ever be
When you - lay your hands
Over me
But donít go weak on me now
I know that itís weak
But God help me I need this
I will not sleep in this bed of lies
