lyrics

Shuffling feet
Skin to skin in the heat
We open ourselves to love and hate
And all that lies between

Seventeen and shy
Smart enough to know but dumb enough to try
She opened her hand, put her arm around my waste
And laced her fingers with mine

Lie, lie lie, maybe, I know why
Lie, lie lie, maybe, I know why
The young men smile and the old men just sit there and cry
The young men smile and the old men just sit there and cry

Festival fires
Carousel lights and trapeze wires
We open ourselves and lead with our lips
And kiss with innocent desires

Lie, lie lie, maybe, I know why
Lie, lie lie, maybe, I know why
The young men smile and the old men just sit there and cry
The young men smile and the old men just sit there and cry

A trembling voice
With a kiss and smile she made her choice
Face to face at a primal pace
We fell into the void

Lie, lie lie, maybe, I know why
Lie, lie lie, maybe, I know why
The young men smile and the old men just sit there and cry
The young men smile and the old men just sit there and cry

Lie, lie lie, maybe, I know why
Lie, lie lie, maybe, I know why
Maybe, I know why
