lyrics

Now, it’s not impossible to be beyond belief,
But let’s be honest though:
I’d rather be deceived.

Now, here is the prickly peel,
Of all of the times we’ve tried,
To feel how we didn’t feel.
To leave all these things unsaid.

And here is an orange rind,
Made bitter with icy pith,
But, let’s see it as silver-lined,
With sweet citrus fruit underneath.

‘Coz, it’s not impossible to be beyond belief,
But let’s be honest though:
I’d rather be deceived.

So, take time in healing, Hon.
Make space with your spinnerets,
Keep on weaving that silk cocoon,
That glitters like diamond flecks.

Hang that hammock there from a tree,
Stare up at the dusky stars,
I’ll dream of you, if you dream of me,
Dancing there in you fancy clothes.

‘Cause, it’s not impossible to be beyond belief,
But let’s be honest though: I’d rather be deceived.
No, it’s not impossible to be beyond belief,
But let’s be honest though: I’d rather be deceived.
