Lullabies and Lies

[You can listen to this song on Myspace.]

  • Title: ‘Lullabies and Lies’
  • Band: Split Seven Ways
  • Album: Wormwood & Wolfsbane (2008)

Years ago, we were still friends; sisters against the rest
But you disappeared into the distance, and I was second-best
Your new friends, that awful boy; then another, just as bad
All the adoration spent on you nearly drove me mad

He stole you, he stole you, but I know that you forgot him too
It’s my only consolation, and is it even true?
I swallowed it down, I made a world for lullabies and lies
My hatred and my jealousy, killing me inside
I swallowed down the bitter pill and turned it all to fear
But the memories still linger on, though I won’t shed a tear

I read that letter and I felt sick, because sisters don’t forget
You were gone, your son lived on; I felt no love, just regret

It stole you, it stole you, this world that I can’t get into
I pretend that I am normal, but it’s all tainted by you
I swallowed it down, I made a world for lullabies and lies
My hatred and my jealousy, killing me inside
I swallowed it down, the bitter pill, and turned it all to fear
But the memories still linger on, though I won’t shed a tear

And when I see you in Harry’s eyes, I bite my fingers, try not to cry
Crush the magic with the bitterness, give him a chance at a normal life
