Haligh, Haligh, A Lie, Haligh - Bright Eyes
  The phone slips from a loose grip
  Words were missed then, some apology
  I didnt want to tell you this
  No, its just some guy she's been hanging out with
  I doni't know, the past couple weeks I guess
  Well, thank you and hang up the phone
  Let the funeral start
  Hear the casket close
  Let's pin split-black ribbon to your overcoat
  Well, laughter pours from under doors
  In this house, I don't understand that sound no more
  It seems artificial, like a T.V. set

  Well, haligh, haligh, a lie, haligh
  This weight it must be satisfied
  You offer only one reply
  You know not what you do
  But you tear and tear your hair from roots
  From that same head you have twice removed now
  A lock of hair you said would prove
  Our love would never die
  Well ha ha ha

  I remember everything
  The words we spoke on freezing South Street
  And all those mornings watching you get ready for school
  You combed your hair inside that mirror
  The one you painted blue and glued with jewelry tears
  Something about those bright colors
  Would always make you feel better
  But now we speak with ruined tongues
  And the words we say aren't meant for anyone
  It's just a mumbled sentence to a passing acquaintance
  But there was once you

  You said you hate my suffering
  And you understood
  And you'd take care of me
  You'd always be there
  Well where are you now?

  Haligh, haligh, a lie, haligh
  The plans were never finalized
  But left to hang like yarn and twine
  Dangling before my eyes
  As you tear and tear your hair from roots
  From that same head you have twice removed now
  A lock of hair you said would prove
  Our love would never die

  And I sing and sing of awful things
  The pleasure that my sadness brings
  As my fingers press onto the strings
  In yet another clumsy chord
  Haligh, haligh, an awful lie
  This weight will now be satisfied
  I'm gonna give you only one reply
  I know not who I am

  But I talk in the mirror
  To the stranger that appears
  Our conversations are circles
  Always one sided
  Nothing is clear

  Except we keep coming back
  To this meaning that I lack
  He says the choices were given
  Now you must live them
  Or just not live
  But do you want that?
