Tried To Love A Lie
By Jennie Riddle © 2007

My heart won’t heal with band-aids
Mamma’s kisses won’t help
I hurt myself real bad this time
Ain’t nothing like a scraped knee
Dang sure ain’t my funny bone
I’m torn in two, broken inside

See, I tried to love a lie… I wanted to believe
Sometimes it feels better living life deceived
I tried to love a lie… I wanted to believe
A storybook tale dressed as my dreams
I Should have waited for the real thing…

Truth came in and wounded me…
A crazy Irony
It’s the cost of life in a make-believe world…
Reality has dawned real slow
Done chased what wasn’t mine to hold
Just fantasies of a little girl

Morning came and woke me up
Sober and clear
Funny how the light hurts my eyes
Time to shake off my slumber
Get my head out of the clouds
And live the life that is really mine…
