How Can You Say That To Me

This song is by Edwin McCain and appears on the album Scream And Whisper (2004).

The air that you breathe it must be poisoned
And you're dressed up in your best disguise
And I don't want to hear what you have to say
It's there in your eyes when you look away
These beautiful words are turning into lies

How can you say that to me

The light that still shines is just an illusion
It's just a memory from a burned out star
Its promise has come from so far away
It's fighting through sadness and years of decay
And it's a wonder it ever made it this far

After all of those secrets you let me believe
There's no rose petal air, there's just thorns when I breathe
Oh now how can you say that

It's not this silence that screams in my mind
Each day I feel like I'm falling behind
Living in shadows, still getting burned
When will I ever learn

After all those secrets you let me believe
There's no rose petal air, there's just thorns when I breathe
How can you say that to me
