Liar's Moon

It would have been a pretty moon, If I’d not been alone. It would have been shining bright, On a heart I called my own. But here I sit beneath a sky, Of darkness I have made, And think of this game I’m in, But wish I hadn’t played. Oh liar’s moon, I’ve been deceived, By the brightness of your smile, You called my name, made me believe, You’d be here for awhile. I’ve been a fool for your love, Gave up my heart and home, The sky is empty...You have gone, I’m left no place of my own. So, now I am a prisoner, Of lives I thought were dreams, The bars that surround me, Made of your piercing beams. I realize I am still a fool, And though I feel so lost, I’d throw it all into the wind, And count you worth the cost. Chorus: Oh liar’s moon, you’ve won again, I guess the joke’s on me, You stole away my spirit, And called it “setting me free”, Oh liar’s moon, you’ve won again, I guess the joke’s on me.
