Lies Between Lovers

Words and music by Susan Cattaneo

Trouble’s hiding like a telltale heart
Beating softly in the bedroom dark
Watch the world as it falls apart

You fill the spaces with an empty kiss
Say our love would never come to this
Sure I’ll forget and you’ll forgive

The lies between lovers
A tangled truth that pulls us under
Words as careless as a lipstick’s red
Temper flaring like a cigarette
And little ones between us taking cover
That’s what lies between lovers

You take three days and I’ll take four
We’ll split their hearts in our little war
Sweep the wreckage out the door

We tell ourselves, we’re gonna be okay
Things are better working out this way
Crooked scars they’re gonna fade
