"Sometimes it gets so thick in here," she said
Clearing the plates from another power lunch
Then she laughed at herself and told me what was good
No ring, no coy disguise, but world-weary innocence in her eyes
Said, "Every false move you make will be withstood"
"Lies, like rust, decay
Is your heart that way?
Vows, like prayers, are heard
Are you gonna keep your word?
And when in time I pledged heart and soul
She said, "Love is patient
But you must know that feelings come and go Like these sainted patrons"
Lies, like rust, decay
Is your heart that way?
And good intentions are no guarantee, just look at me
Are you gonna keep your word? "
When the seige begins
When the thieves break in
Will you stand your ground?
And when you fight the wars on foreign soil
Will I rest assured?
Are you gonna keep your word?
And as we watch our children sleep
I take her hand, I feel her ring
I have been faithful, but I know my heart is not above deceit
Lies, like rust, decay
Is your heart that way?
Vows, like prayers, are heard
Will I keep my word?
Lies, little lies come back to haunt you like petty fraud
Vows are made forever before God
