Garden Of Little White Lies (original)

Author: Lyrics Beth Williams/Music & Vocal Steve Biederman
Timing was never their strong suit
So they just kept their eyes on the prize
And planted fake smiles on their faces
In their garden of little white lies

Day after day though, they hungered
For each other, and no more goodbyes
Relied on their dreams to sustain them
In their garden of little white lies

Pre-Chorus:
But twisting the truth can cause judgment to fade
And secrets get slippery when no one’s afraid

Chorus:
Those little white lies
Grew up 'round their thighs
As they played in the shade of their garden
But plant a black seed
It blooms twisted and bleeds
A minefield with no room to bargain


Harvest time came without warning
With haste, a gate left open wide
Then all came to stare at the two unaware
In their garden of little white lies

Pre-Chorus:
Their love and their fate had been one in the same
Until they made up their own rules to the game


Chorus repeat
