please tell me one lie
that you're still in love with me

that's just how desperate i am
to hear those words one more time
slipping out of your lips
so sweetly, so gently

and i'm here longing for your love
even if it's just a lie
and i'll give you all i have
to try and have you back in my arms

and maybe you were never mine
even when i'd told you i loved you
to you it might always have been a lie
all along, but all had already i gave you

true that my love for you
was far from perfection
but it was always real to me
even when it hurt more than i could bear

and tell me this; lie to me
because one more lie is enough
for me to believe
and to hold on to

.

love me
it's all i've ever needed

(so lie to me and i'll love you, too)

.

and i'll give you my beating heart-
until it shatters into pieces

.
