Undiscovered Lies

I set out on a journey,
Heart open and eyes set wide
I grabbed her hand with no set plan
And said hey let’s kill some time

Whiskey and tequila,
What’s mine is yours and yours is mine
With pressed lips, where fingers slip
And a chaser filled with brine

So you don’t know
Which way to go
Or what you’ll want to find
But restless hearts, beat on their parts
With undiscovered lies

You asked for some seeds of doubt
Watering alone, hoping something would sprout
But there was no plant, just your watering can
And a concern no concern would be found

I guess looking’s a foolish man’s game
So I said hey let’s give it a play
On top of the trash, the marks on your back
It always ends up the same way

So you don’t know
Which way to go
Or what you’ll want to find
But restless hearts, beat on their parts
With undiscovered lies
