The Stone Coyotes

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
