​A Different Lie

This song is by Slapp Happy and appears on the album Ça Va (1998).

All the broken hearts,
When they're taken apart
Put you back where you start,
There's nothing you can do about it.
And you're not out of tune
With the shape of your room
Then what can you do
To make it any other way?
It's a miracle he's more awake than asleep
On a gravity wave, walking on water is easy.
Caught in tremors of a violent kind
Two worlds, two minds,
You sink like a stone
Too right! you're on your own.

With a trick of the light, turning day into night
Made me feel so sad, unsatisfied.
Like a reason that's past had no reason to last
Picking up the pieces, walking on broken glass.
Reaching for the crystal glass.
But then the band played on
That's what's called "amore"
Though we could try it mine,
Let's do it your way.

All the broken hearts,
When they're taken apart
Put you back where you start,
Looking for a different lie.
Like a reason that's past had no reason to last
Picking up the pieces, can't trust too much.
