The Web Poetry Corner - M A Heathcote - Deceit and lies

Deceit and lies

by

M A Heathcote


I've gotta wheel of hurt
A millstone of pain
That keeps right-on
Turning right-on turning
Right-on turning in on me
Tears in my eyes
Just when I hoped to realize!

You can't love deceit and lies (Chorus)
Deceit and lies
You can't love deceit and lies

Oh if I could count the tears
I've been holding back
The years I've dammed-up
The heart ache that just keeps-on
Flooding back
Iíve been holding out on all these lonely years
Then you'd know just how I've loved you
Oh baby don't go, don't go...
No matter the pain!
The hurt will always hurt again!
And again, and again!

You can't love deceit and lies (Chorus)
Deceit and lies
You can't love deceit and lies
Oh baby don't close your eyes
When I'm the one who's hurting
And set that big wheel of pain
Hurtling, turning in on my heart again...
Oh I've gotta wheel of hurt
And love it keeps right-on turning
Turning in on me
Tears in my eyes
And all my hope!
Once more despised
Once more jeopardized
In vain!

You can't love deceit and lies (Chorus)
I can't love your deceit and lies
Deceit and lies
You can't love deceit and lies
I can't love deceit and lies
Not even if they happen to be good lies..?
