Lie to Me Lyrics

Tell yourself it's over now
Try to kill a broken vow
If only you could find the strength
To kill the memories
These empty pages never turn
You lit the flame and let them burn
You tried to bury me so deep
Wouldn't that be neat?

Will your...

    Guys, not everything they make is all Christian-- and this is an example. I think it's a heartbreak song-- "Lie to me if you can feel that this love was never real," "bury me so deep to kill the memories," "just turn away & let me go," "you can learn to love again," "all the pain in your face/you can't let it die". He's saying to his lover, "OK, go to the other guy, but no matter what I love you and you can always come back to me."

    I think the song is about a broken marriage and saying that no matter what you're not alone and that you may deny God but when you are hurt and feel unloved by your ex husband or wife, just know that you can learn to love again. To love God.

    I believe it is talking about being God in this situation.

    " Can you just turn away and let me go?"

    "Lie to me
    You can leave
    I'll still be here when you see
    You're not alone
    You don't have to run again
    And leave me in denial"

    Its talking about us walking away from God or spiting in his face because we don't believe.

    "Lie to me
    Watch me bleed
    I'll be here when you see
    You're not alone
    You don't need to run"

    Its talking about when we lie and run from God that He will be there when we see he is the truth the way and the light.

    I believe this song could be talking about divorce in some way when it says- Tell yourself it's over now/ Try to kill a broken vow. Not sure but it kinda makes sense.
