Story

From the ongoing 2920 Sessions. Don't Lie To Me isa beautiful acoustic fingerpicking song. Written in the 1980s, the music that now backs this tune reminds me, if you will, of a heartbroken and abused woman forced to dance with her abusive husband and pretend that she is as happy as she could be. While the storyline begs for the truth, the music portrays the fantasy of life as it should be, not as it is.

Lyrics

Don't lie to me

Don't lie to me

Don't tell me tales

Don't lie to me

When I first met you

everything came alive for the first time

You were my sunshine

you chased all my clouds away

I loved you

Don't lie to me

Don't lie to me

Don't tell me tales

Don't lie to me

I feel just like the sea

taking that ship to that port and bringing it back again

I've been so many times before I

I just don't want to be the sea ... anymore

... I just don't want to be alone

any more

Go ahead, join.

I occasionally will update you with progress on my many life-projects.
