lyrics

Lie to me
I can take it, you see, but please don’t
No don’t lie to yourself
That your actions won’t impact on someone else

You are free
It’s a freedom you wield like a knife
A freedom that you weaponize
It’s a privilege granted you all your life

No damage
How can you know there’s no damage
When you cannot read minds
And I’m glad that you cannot read mine

What you said
In that letter that you never wrote
And that I never read
Well, it spoke to me volumes inside my head

I concede
There’s no limit to love, but it’s time
Yes, time - time that you need
It’s the danger of loving beyond your means

No damage
How can you know there’s no damage
When you cannot read minds
And I’m glad that you cannot read mine x2

No damage
How can you know there’s no damage
How can you know there’s no hurt and frustration
No stark disillusionment, oh

Lie to me
I can take it, you see, but please don’t
No don’t lie to yourself
That your actions won’t impact on someone else.
