Summer Lies Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

We used to dance like it was going out of style
When you loved me for a while
And I remember every word you ever said, every kiss

We used to sing all the oldest songs we knew
But the words were never true for you
Or was it all a game of solitaire played in the dark?

All the sweetest things you said
And I believed were summer lies
Hanging in the willow trees
Like the dead were summer lies
I'll never fall in love again

I whispered too but the things I said were true
And I gave up my whole world for you
I gave you all the best years of my life

And half the worst and now you're gone
I pine and wane, pale and wan, never knowing
When it's dawn, curtains drawn
Hiding in my room, wasting away, cutting myself

All the sweetest things you said
And I believed were summer lies
Hanging in the willow trees
Like the dead were summer lies
I'll never fall in love again
