How Much I've Lied
Words and Music by Gram Parsons and Pam Rifkin
|Em |C D |G | | G D G C Darling, there is something I must tell you, you must know. Em A D But it's so hard to say the words I feel. C G C This fancy that I'm on has been going on too long. Em C D It's time we stopped pretending things are real. G D G C 'Cause I've been living deep in sin. I've been living blind. Em A D And I don't know just what's right or wrong. C G C To take a chance on losing you was such a silly thing to do. Em C D The chance I might wake up and find you gone. C D G C Blue, so blue, my love is burning blue. Em Am C D Any brighter flame would be a lie. C D G C Blue, so blue, my love still burns for you, Em C D But I know that I'll only make you cry. G D G C A thief can only steal from you. He cannot break your heart. Em A D He'll never touch the precious things inside. C G C So one like you should surely be miles and miles away from me, Em C D G Then you'd never care how much I've lied. C G C So try to understand the pain. It takes so long when I explain. Em C D G Please, don't you forget how much I've lied.
