Another Good Lie
by Mark Heard

Album: Second Hand


Darling, when I was your age I could do anything,
There were days of rock and roll and lunar strolls, and friendship rings,
And, baby, I told myself I’d follow my deepest dreams,
Knowing, if I did my best, success would always follow me.

It was another good lie coming down like a freezing rain from a hot blue sky,
Another good lie coming in like a cross-town hurricane on fire,
Another good lie coming down on your daddy’s soul ‘til it made him old,
Another good lie, another good lie, another good lie.

Darling, they all told me that they would do anything,
Climb the highest mountain, swim the ocean, do the damnedest things,
And, baby, then they took my heart and vanished into memory,
Leaving it to time and circumstance to come deliver me.

It was another good lie coming down like a freezing rain from a hot blue sky,
Another good lie coming in like a cross-town hurricane on fire,
Another good lie coming down on your daddy’s soul ‘til it made him old,
Another good lie, another good lie, another good lie.

Now, baby, I’m just one man and my world fell apart long ago,
I guess I’m still in shock,
It shouldn’t have been like that,
I guess I still hope for deliverance.

And, darling, when I was your age I could do anything,
I could be a restless heart, a social force, or just genuine,
And, baby, don’t our dreams die hard in the ashes of destiny?
Wish that I could lay to rest the bitterness that keeps telling me…

About another good lie coming down like a freezing rain from a hot blue sky,
Another good lie coming in like a cross-town hurricane on fire,
Another good lie coming down on your daddy’s soul ‘til it made him old,
Another good lie, another good lie, another good lie,
Another good lie, another good lie, another good lie.

Oh, it was another good lie, (was another good lie)
Yeah,
It was another good lie,
Was another good lie,
It was another good lie, hey,
It was another good lie,
It was another good lie,
Yeah, (another good lie)
Another good lie.
