Lyrics of Sting - Big Lie, Small World

Big Lie Small World

I sat down and wrote this letter
Telling you that i felt better
Since you'd gone and i was free
I'm so happy

I have so little time to spare now
I'm wanted almost everywhere now
I make out like casanova
Friends are always coming over

I signed my name as if i meant it
Sealed it with a kiss and sent it
The letter had improved my mood
Happy in my solitude

But halfway home i changed my tune
And when i saw my lonely room
The mirror caught my eye
When i sit down i cry

Big lie, small world
Big lie, small world

I had to intercept that letter
Telling you that i was better
I raced to catch the postman's van
He was leaving as i ran

I miss the bus i miss the train
I end up walking in the rain
Big dog chased me down the street
I hadn't had a bite to eat

Feeling sorry for myself
Wishing i was someone else
I walked across the city
'cause i couldn't stand your pity

Big lie, small world
Big lie, small world

The place you live looks opulent
And obviously a higher rent
Than our cosy little room
I had this sense of doom

The landlord says you're out of town
That your new boyfriend's always around
The hour was getting late
So i sit down and wait

Here's the postman with my letter
Coming down the path, he'd better
Give that thing to me
I have to make him see

Begging doesn't do the trick
He thinks that i'm a lunatic
And then who comes upon the scene
But your new boyfriend mr. clean

I hit the postman, hit your lover
Grabbed the letter ran for cover
The police arrived in time for tea
Said they'd like to question me

I can only curse my fate
I have to face the magistrate
It hasn't been the best of days
I'd like to fly away

Big lie, small world
Big lie, small world

Lyrics of The Tragically Hip - Born In The Water

Born In The Water Rolling hill all covered in suede I'm heat-nervous and out of road Downtown there's a parade But I don't think...
