The Most Beautiful Lie

I first met you at a bar, 

After I admired your car

We were both so young and free,

I just wanted you to notice me

As we danced to and fro, 

You said I should know,

That you never wanted to let me go

 

The most beutiful lie, 

Was when you promised to never make me cry

That you would be with me for forever and a day,

That you would stay, for now and always 

The most beautiful lie, 

Was when you promised to never say good bye

That you would always come back to me, 

I don't want to believe, the truth that I see

 

On our wedding day,

You said you’d be beside me in every way

As we danced to and fro,

You said you would never let me go

Through sickness and health,

Through poorness and wealth,

That we would be together,

For always and forever

 

The most beautiful lie, 

Was when you promised to never make me cry

That you would be with me for forever and a day, 

That you would stay, for now and always

The most beautiful lie, 

Was when you promised to never say good bye,

That you would always come back to me, 

I don't want to believe, the truth that I see

 

On our honeymoon,

You said forever was a day too soon

So for forever and a day,

We’d be together, for now and always

You said we would tour the seven seas,

Just you and me,

You promised that for the rest of your life,

You’d make me proud to be your wife

 

The most beautiful lie,

Was when you promised to never make me cry,

That you would be with me for forever and a day,

That you would stay, for now and always

The most beautiful lie,

Was when you promised never to say good bye,

That you would always come back to me,

I don’t want to believe, the truth that I see

 

You left me on a sunny day,

Saying we’d be together for now and always

But now I’m wearing your wedding band,

Holding a folded flag in my hand

As they lower your casket in the ground

Our son doesn’t make a sound

He salutes you as we say good bye

Tears cloud my eyes as I start to cry

 

The most beautiful lie,

Was when you promised to never make me cry,

That you would be with me for forever and a day,

That you would stay, for now and always

The most beautiful lie,

Was when you promised never to say good bye,

That you would always come back to me,

I don’t want to believe, the truth that I see

The most beautiful lie,

Was when you promised to never make me cry
