Heartfelt Lies
Ron Pope Lyrics

I walk by the rivers edge
Skipping smooth wet stones
And watching them sink

I never was a fan of innocence
I've got two black eyes
And an empty fifth of gin

And I see I'm wrong for you
But we try
You swear I'm hard
To lay beside
If I was you I'd run
From me most nights
Maybe I was meant
To be left behind

Thundering circumstances
Beyond our control rumble in
Counting time by the lines
'Round your eyes
As your gentle caress
Helps me forget

And I think it's time

To say good night
And you swear I'm hard
To lay beside
Now years seem to pass
As we blink our eyes
Maybe I was meant
To be left behind

But all of our heartfelt lies
All of our heartfelt lies
All of our heartfelt lies
They're not enough this time

And I say I'd love
To spend the night
But you found someone else
To lay beside
And I know it makes sense
But it's like sand in my eyes
Maybe I was meant
To be left behind

Guys if you want to listen to these kind of songs go to Google Play Music and search for A Drop in the Ocean Radio. Ever since I listened to that radio It became my late night habit when I couldn't sleep.

This is so beautiful. I think I might cry. Such a powerful song, sadly it's unheard of. But still I love it and most of the people who watched this video do.
