Appearances are often deceptive
Words take colour from context
Context that appears
Behind the curtain
Conspiracies are hatched
Their deeds
To the eyes appear decent
They're innocent
There's no evidence
Appearances are often deceptive
Words take colour from context

Half truths, half lies
Most people live life
Tears smiles
Smiles tears
Lions and crocodiles here
Appearances are often deceptive
Words take colour from context
Context that appears
Words are lies
If adverse truth you identify
Otherwise face value
You rely
Deeds are truths
Until adverse intentions
You don't identify

It's important "appear to be" than "to be". For example, you shouldn't only be honest, but appear to be honest as well. Otherwise, you know ...
Even the truest of intentions
Can be burned to the ground

This is not what He intended

For hearts to be

Broken

Healed

And then...

'Mended'

To live this way

This is not what He intended

you fought with good intentions
but for all the wrong reasons

take my heart and break it
make me love and cry
make me think like it
only to expect and nothing betides

happenstance is luck
but luck is foreign to me
the only thing i wished to be
is for you to be with me

reasons aren't present
so why should i think so?
it's my mind that takes me
to places i shouldn't go

expectations hurt
but it always has a way
hope is different
when there's no reason to
think that way

intoxicated by you
fading into blue
i just want a person i fear to lose
because your love is the one
thing i wish i knew

my hearty intentions
hurt so bad
i could be so knuckleheaded
to think we'd have a chance

the story i wished to play
wasn't written in the stars
so i'll say goodbye, to your love...
and deal with a broken heart

I have said things I didn't mean,
The kind that you don't apologize for,
Until they know you didn't mean them,
Sometimes I pretend to feel things,
To protect someone else's feelings,
If I keep saying things I don't mean,
Maybe one day I'll mean them.

I smell The salty breeze

calm before it reveals.

The true intentions

of coming this close

submerging the evil

behold.

What is this sense
between my eyes
Do we aim to do our best
Imperfect form
Intentions less
Creative flows
Mixed in with work and rest
See the signs laid out ahead
Connecting lines in time
Progress starts from the chest
