The weight of lies.

Artist: The Avett Brothers

Song: The Weight Of Lies

Disappear from your home town
Go and find the people that you know
Show them all of your good parts
Leave town when the bad ones start to showGo and wed a woman
A pretty girl that you never met
Make sure she knows you love her well
But don’t make any other promises

The weight of lies will bring you down
And follow you to every town ’cause
Nothing happens here that doesn’t happen there
So, when you run make sure you run
To something and not away from ’cause
Lies don’t need an aeroplane to chase you anywhere

I once heard the worst thing a man can do is draw a hungry crowd
Tell everyone his name, pride, and confidence
But leaving out his doubts
I’m not sure I bought those words
When I was young I knew most everything
These words have never meant as much to anyone
As they now mean to me

The weight of lies will bring you down
And follow you to every town ’cause
Nothing happens here that doesn’t happen there
So, when you run make sure you run
To something and not away from ’cause
Lies don’t need an aeroplane to chase you down

The weight of lies will bring you down
And follow you to every town ’cause
Nothing happens here that doesn’t happen there
So, when you run make sure you run
To something and not away from ’cause
Lies don’t need an aeroplane to chase you anywhere
