White Lies


It was a fairy tale
That I heard you tell
To a friend afraid of living
But this fairy tale
Helped our friend to follow
Where his heart would lead him
He was close to dying
But he survived
Stolen was the naive lightness though
That exists in those of us
Who have never been anything but alive.

Fairy tales are blessed with happy endings
What does it take to live happily ever after?
Left here with our everyday lives
We're watching another story drifting by
We should all have a little white fairy tale lie

He's not gone. No he's here. And he tries to cope.
He's not gone. No he's here. Guess there is still hope.

Fairy tales are blessed with happy endings
What does it take to live happily ever after?
Left here with our everyday lives
We're watching another story drifting by
We should all have a little white fairy tale lie
