Maybe It’s True

Maybe It’s True
(Flannery)

Dreams come true
just one day at a time
no tomorrow’s on the days that
you were mine
stepping out
with head held high
hidden gems and borrowed lies
said you never meant to make me cry

Well maybe it’s true

Found his name
carved in your bed
maybe I’m still 16
inside my head
close my eyes so I can’t see
the way you lie so easily
a fool for you….that’s what became of me

Maybe it’s true

People say they see you
doing what you ain’t supposed to do
laying in the shadows
oh what a view
maybe it’s true

Just can’t face it
I don’t want to know
the latest explanation
for why you did not show
I closed and bar
found my way home
knowing that you weren’t alone
late night whispers on the telephone

Maybe it’s true

You look so pretty
in your red summer dress
eager to please and oh so easy to impress
so say all the
corner boys
lots of wine but not much poise
used to making all that bloody noise

But maybe it’s true

People say they see you
doing what you ain’t supposed to do
laying in the shadows
oh what a view
maybe it’s true
