Little White Lies

The Stone Coyotes
B. Keith


Oh, it's all clear in hindsight
But it wasn't at the time
You were whispering in my ear
"I love you darlin'- please be mine"

All those sweet-sounding words
Wedding bells beckoning
How was I to know what was to come?
The day of reckoning

It was lies, lies, little white lies
That tore our world apart
Lies, lies, little white lies
Drove a dagger in my heart

Till death do us part
You vowed to cherish me
When the first lie was spoken
I guess the rest came easily

Oh, I wish you all the best in life
And may all your dreams come true
These are a few of my little white lies
I'm about to tell to you
