This song consists of two guitars, both of the same
tuning, and is very complex. It will take time to
get the hang of it, so be patient. God bless and
ROCK ON!!!

Lyrics:

1st Verse

I've lied to you
The same way that I always do
This is the last smile 
That I'll fake for the sake of being with you

[Everything falls apart/even the people
who never frown/eventually break down]
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
[Everything has to end/you'll soon find we're
out of time left to watch it all unwind]
The sacrifice is never knowing 

Chorus

Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away

2nd Verse

I've tried like you
To do everything you wanted to
This is the last time
I'll take the blame for the sake of being with you

[Everything falls apart/even the people
who never frown/eventually break down]
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
[Everything has to end/you'll soon find we're
out of time left to watch it all unwind]
The sacrifice is never knowing

Chorus

Bridge

[Everything falls apart/even the people
who never frown/eventually break down]
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
[Everything has to end/you'll soon find we're
out of time left to watch it all unwind]
The sacrifice is never knowing 

Chorus

That's it for a very complicated, and powerful song!!!
