lyrics

Grab your seat I've got a press pass for the end of the world
We will shout out all our questions at the poor bloke who shows up
Sir, is it true the gates of heaven can be bribed to open up?
With a few deeds in deliverance and some love, what a scandal

So I tiptoed towards the gate and there I found you with a knife
Standing squarely in between me and the end of my life
You said prove to me you weren't just the worst kind of friend
When I trusted you with everything, you messed me up real bad

If my lies were only white ones to protect the ones I loved
If the truth, though it hurt, set you free soon enough
If I wrapped up my excuses and I offered them to you
You could kiss me you could slap me but you still should let me through

From a scribble in a notebook with my fingers trembling tight
To your breakdown in the bedroom with a pause that killed the lights
We were raised with expectations that I'll never understand
When I told you that I want you, well, I meant what I said

If my lies were only white ones to protect the ones I loved
If the truth, though it hurt, set you free soon enough
If I wrapped up my excuses and I offered them to you
You could kiss me you could slap me but you still should let me through

I have no idea what's happening around me anymore
I'm told there are no backsies, that normal is a bore
I just tried to make you happy, be good thing in your life
But if the best of intentions paved this road, show me outside

If my lies were only white ones to protect the ones I loved
If the truth, though it hurt, set you free soon enough
If I wrapped up my excuses and I offered them to you
You could kiss me you could slap me but you still should let me through

If my lies were only white ones to protect the ones I loved
If the truth, though it hurt, set you free soon enough
If I wrapped up my excuses and I offered them to you
You could kiss me you could slap me but you still should let me through
I said you still should let me through
