This song is performed by Jane Birkin and appears on the album Rendez-Vous (2004).
The little thoughts came rushing in / While I watched for a sign from him / When all the while was clear as day / That I should go and he should stay / I look his love like it was mine / I squeezed the truth until it lied / It took some time for cracks to show / Should I stay or should he go? / The simple story that you told me / Is a little different from what you showed me / The simple story, unfurling slowly / Is if you lay down with a dream / You'll wake up lonely / The fog will cast a certain shade / So what you see is how what's made / it's mark will show you what to do / When hope pretends it's made you new / Love lied love lied but I'm the reason / Love lied / The simple story that you told me / Is a little different from what you showed me / The simple story, unfurling slowly / Is if you lay down with a dream / You'll wake up lonely / The sky wraps round the mountaintops / The watch unwinds until it stops / Some things will always be the way they are / And that is how they'll stay / The simple story that you told me / Is a little different from what you showed me / The simple story, unfurling slowly / Is if you lay down with a dream / You'll wake up lonely
