PRETTY LIES
©2012 Britt Arnesen

Sister met him at a bus stop
He was short, she gave him five bucks
Could have known he was going nowhere fast
Saw them later at my gig that night
He was drunk and said she looked nice
She caught his bug, fell in love, lost her mind

You're gonna need more than, gonna need more than
You're gonna need more than pretty lies
I hope you've come here to say your goodbyes
And walk the line we draw tonight

Early summer they were married
All the sudden there's a baby
And the bum is gone, he left a note and her alone
Still she kept the ring on
Always hoping for a miracle
But he didn't show, she had to get a smaller home

You're gonna need more than, gonna need more than
You're gonna need more than pretty lies
I hope you've come here to say your goodbyes
And walk the line we draw tonight

Gotta get up on a stage now
Play guitar and entertain now
Watch him dance with some young thing I don't know
All the money that he wasted
All the times that he betrayed her
All my nephew knows of a father is a ghost

You're gonna need more than, gonna need more than
You're gonna need more than pretty lies
I hope you've come here to say your goodbyes
And walk the line we draw tonight

I hope you've come here to say your goodbyes
Goodbye
