Topic: believeable lie


a melancholic little ditty about our children flying the nest. a short and sweet one this just 1 min 30 secs. i'd appreciate your thoughts.

Believeable Lie.Undefined

[G] Don't look sad.

Don't cry.

Don't [C] think you have to make up some believeable lie.

Cos I can [G] take it.

I wont fold.

I will [C] show you in the end I'm as good as gold.

But [Am] someone will take you [D] away.

Without [Bm] caring `bout what I might [Am] say.

It's all on [G] me.

I'm a fool.

Words come [C] from my mouth before I think them through.

Yes I'll be [G] sad .

I may cry.

Don't you [C] worry I will make up some believeable lie.

Cos I don't [Am] want to see you [D] go. Though I [Bm] knew some day it would be [Am] so.

My-oh- [G] my. [Em] Time goes [D] by.

[C] Time....[Em] goes....[Am] by.... [G] [Em]

Re: believeable lie


Yes indeed !
I am in awe of how fast time has passed by.

I want a "do over" !   I wish I could go back in time and just enjoy my kids more - seems I was always so busy.

I must admit I was jealous of my sons in law bc they got to marry my daughters - it's really hard to accept that anoter man can take your place after so many years of caring and protecting them.

Very cool song Phill - Darn - I wish I had your abilities !!

Hope you are well and not driving Ann too crazy !  smile

We should collaborate again on something, I always love how you take my songs and make them magical !

Best wishes

Re: believeable lie

Enjoyed that Phill. I have been through that situation as well with both of my children, and I wish they were both still here or at least close enough to stop by occasionally. Just finished listening to it as well and I enjoyed your performance. The music fits the lyrics and I agree with your use of the keyboard/piano.

Re: believeable lie

Hi Jim, thanks for the good review. Yep, it seems one day you're changing nappies next you're feeding your grandkids!

Look forward to our next colab, I seem to have dried up at the moment, I had to buy a new note pad and the blank pages are freaking me out...lol

Re: believeable lie

Hi Jeff. Thanks for that. It was going to be just the guitar and vocal but I thought I'd experiment with the piano, I think it worked?

I have four kids; one lives in Australia and the other three live within a couple of minutes walk so we see them almost daily....at a safe distance of course. I'll be glad when this is all done... I'm missing my kisses and cuddles, or cwtches as we say in Wales.
Stay safe
