It's Not What They Said

It's Not What They Said

Framing Hanley

Like a foggy mirror,
Where receptions blurred
And things could stand to be clearer.
Sometimes it's hard to look you in the eye.

[Chorus]
If I could be the man on your shoulder
A God as you grow older.
I'd sleep so much easier tonight.
Close your eyes, they'll tell a story,
Of happy endings.
Close your eyes, re-write the story,
A new beginning.
It's not what they said, and it's not what we read
And all the promises they made us,
Are all shattered on the ground.

Your defense,
You've done no wrong
And live life in innocence,
So how could they have looked you in the eye?

[Chorus]

It's on the ground.
And when the cards are down,
It's safe to say that all bets are off.
It's on the ground.
And when the cards are down,
Well it's time to play, it's hard to say.
So bet all call.

It's not what they said, and it's not what we read
And all the promises they made us,
Are all shattered on the ground.
It's not what they said, and it's not what we read
And all the promises they made us,
Are all shattered on the ground.

Shattered on the ground,
All the cards are down
Everything they told us
Has always been so wrong,
So wrong, so wrong.
So wrong
