Here’s what happens when you tell a lie.
It begins so simple, nobody would mind
The more you tell, the more you give
Until it’s something you can’t forgive
The more you say, the more you know
To make it interesting, or it’ll blow
You decorate with ribbons, and then with bows
And then with glitter and soon it glows
It’s terribly long, with so many holes
You can’t keep up, so you lie low
You think the lie has faded away
Until someone remembers the day
You told a lie you’d soon forget
Or did it just not happen yet?
The more they ask, the more you give
The more they know, they can’t forgive
That one little story, that small white lie
You’re all alone, and now you know why.
