A Beautiful Lie

Album: A Beautiful Lie (2005)
  • Lie awake in bed at night
    and think about your life
    Do you want to be different?

    Try to let go of the truth
    the battles of your youth
    Cause this is just a game

    It's a beautiful lie
    It's a perfect denial
    Such a beautiful lie to believe in
    So beautiful, beautiful lie it makes me

    It's time to forget about the past
    To wash away what happened last
    Hide behind an empty face
    Don't ask too much just say
    Cause this is just a game

    It's a beautiful lie
    It's a perfect denial
    Such a beautiful lie to believe in
    So beautiful, beautiful lie it makes me

    ahhh...

    Beautiful...

    Ohhh...

    Everyone's looking at me
    I'm running around in circles, baby
    A quiet deperation's building higher
    I've got to remember this is just a game

    So lie
    It's a beautiful lie
    It's a beautiful lie
    It's a beautiful lie

    It's a beautiful lie
    It's a perfect denial
    Such a beautiful lie to believe in
    So beautiful, beautiful lie it makes me

  • Kasia from London, --All the money bought of the single went to a charity and it was filmed in an entirely environmentally friendly character, so they did not use much pollution etc. It was a video showing what the pollution is doing to the world in places like where they filmed and their emotions towards that topic.
