Default I WANT TO TELL YOU LIES

I want to tell that little boy his Mom will be just fine.
I want to tell that dad, we got his daughter out in time.
I want to tell that wife, her husband will be home tonight.
I want to tell it like it is, I want to tell them lies.

You didn’t put their seat belts on, you feel you killed your kids.
I want to say you didn’t… but in a way, you did.
You pound your fists into my chest, you’re hurting so inside.
I want to say you’ll be OK, I want to tell you lies.

I can see you crying as your life goes up in smoke.
IF you’d maintained that smoke alarm your children may have woke.
Don’t grab my arm and ask me if your family’s alive.
Don’t make me tell they’re all are dead, I want to tell you lies.

I want to tell this teen, his buddies didn’t die in vain.
Because he thought that it’d be cool, to try to beat that train.
I don’t want to tell him this will haunt him all his life.
I want to say that he’ll forget. I want to tell him lies.

You left the cabinet open and your daughter found the gun.
Now you want me to undo the damage that's been done.
You tell me she's your only child, you say she's only five.
I don't want to say she won't see six, I want to tell you lies.

The fact that you were speeding caused the car to overturn.
And we couldn’t get them out of there before the whole thing burned.
Did they suffer? Yes, they suffered as they slowly burned alive.
But I don’t want to tell you that, I want to tell you lies.

But I have to tell it like it is, until my shift is through.
And then the real lies begin, when I come home to you.
You ask me how my day was and I say it was just fine.
I hope you understand, sometimes I have to tell you lies.
