Aurelio Voltaire – Little White Lies Lyrics

Little White Lies By Aurelio Voltaire

Do you think you’d like me or would you turn and walk away fast
if I told you from whence I came and all the sordid details of my inglorious past?
I’ll tell you why I’m afraid. Would you leave me for dead or would you come to my aid
if I don’t tell you some pretty words, sure to keep you coming my way

I never meant to lie but there are things we do and say to get by,
little white lies, a small surprise how big they grow in size.

It all starts simple enough, your present is dark because your childhood was rough.
So you shed your skin and you changed your name
in the hopes of putting air between you and the pain.
So grab a mask, fill up a flask and slither like a snake into the Masquerade.
Now, you’ve come so far and you feel like a star
and you hope they never figure out who you really are.

You never meant to lie but there are things we do and say to get by,
little white lies, a small surprise how big they grow in size.
I never meant to lie but there are things we do and say to get by.
Little white lies we tell ourselves like, “Everthing’s alright.”

I’m just a snake in the wall but,
it’s a wall you walk by and
if I say the right words then
you’re going to be mine!

I never meant to lie but there are things we do and say to get by,
little white lies, a small surprise how big they grow in size.
I never meant to lie but there are things we do and say to get by.
Little white lies we tell ourselves like, “Everthing’s alright.”

I never meant to lie, but…
I never meant to lie, but…
I never meant to lie, but…
I guess I had to lie.
