a deception a day keeps the painful self-loathing away

another chance to let it go
why can’t I do it why can’t I do it
instead of talking and talking

telling you everything I need you to know
but I’m the last person you want to hear it from

whisper to yourself
that you’re alright that you’re just fine
and doing what is right
whatever helps you sleep at night

well I know you know
just well as I do
if you ever meant a word you said to me
everything would be different

another chance to let you go
why can’t I take it, why cant I take it
you’ll never make up that you gave me up

whisper to yourself
that you’re alright that you’re just fine
and doing what is right
whatever helps you sleep at night

well I know you know
just well as I do
if you ever meant a word you said to me
everything would be different

another chance to let me know
why won’t you say it, why won’t you say it
instead of keeping me believing

whisper to yourself
that you’re alright that you’re just fine
and doing what is right
whatever helps you sleep at night

well I know you know
just well as I do
if you ever meant a word you said to me
everything would be different
i meant every word I said to you
but not a damn thing is different
