A Lot of Lies
Author Unknown

My mom she tells a lot of lies

she never did before

But from now until she dies

She'll tell a whole lot more

Ask my mom how she is

and because she can't explain

She will tell a little lie

because she can't describe the pain

Ask my mom how she is

because she seems to cope so well

She didn't have a choice you see

Nor the strength to yell

Ask my mom how she is

She'll say "I'm alright"

If that's the truth, then tell me

Why does she cry at night?

Ask my mom how she is

"I'm fine, I'm well, I'm coping"

For God's sake mom, just tell the truth

Just say your heart is broken

She'll love me all her life

I've loved her all of mine

But if you ask how she is

She'll lie and say she is fine

I'm here in Heaven

I can't hug her from here

If she lies to you don't listen

Hold her and hold her near

On the day we meet again

We'll smile, and I'll be bold

and say

You're lucky to get her Mom

With all the lies you told
