The Simple Story

This song is by Jane Birkin, features Feist 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 took 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
As 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 (Love lied)
That you told me (Love lied)
Is a little different
From what you showed me (Love lied)

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 (Love lied)
That you told me (Love lied)
Is a little different from
What you showed me (Love lied)
The simple story (Love lied)
Unfurling slowly (Love lied)
As if you lay down with a dream
You'll wake up lonely (Love lied)
