Charted: 64
  • Prophet took my hand on all saints day
    He preached the values of deception
    Changing shadows by a shapeshifter rules
    Tales are never just for fools

    The court of conscience came before me
    Presenting me with a heavenly angel
    You took my hand and ask me, truth aside
    To his questions I replied

    Do you want the truth or something beautiful?
    Just close your eyes and make believe
    Do you want the truth or something beautiful?

    I am happy to deceive you
    He stood as tall as redwood trees
    Drank tea from a seamstress thimble
    Didn't want to speak, the honest truth
    So I spit out lies that aimed to soothe

    Do you want the truth or something beautiful?
    Just close your eyes and make believe
    Do you want the truth or something beautiful?
    I am happy to deceive you

    Secrets, lying, falling veils
    I can be who you want me to be
    Sacred, lies in, telling tales

    I can be who you want me to be
    But do you want me?

    Do you want the truth or something beautiful?
    Just close your eyes and make believe
    Do you want the truth or something beautiful?
    I am happy to deceive you
    Sacred lies in, telling tales

    I can be who you wants me to be
    I can be who you wants me to be
    But do you want me?
    But do you want me?Writer/s: ED HARCOURT, PALOMA FAITH
