One Little Lie

One Little Lie

Lyrics by Katrina Carter & Jon Davis

Music by Jon Davis © 2019


(Female)

Sunday morning you’d make coffee and toast

Then we’d drive out of town, down the coast

Later that at night, I’d cook a beautiful roast

And it ended with one little lie


(Male)

I used to lovingly care for your needs

Neither one of us ever had to concede

Because we hardly ever disagreed

And it ended with one little lie


Chorus

(Both) One little lie …

(Male) That’s all it takes

(Both) One little lie …

(Female) Made our hearts break

(Both) One little lie …

(Male) Now we’ve gone separate ways

(No Vocals but play the ‘one little lie’ hook)


(Female)

I loved calming you after a nightmare

By kissing your forehead and stroking your hair

Then watching shooting stars from our veranda, in the midnight air

And it ended with one little lie


(Male)

Gently washing your back in the shower

Bringing you home freshly picked, wild flowers

(SPOKEN) “I could just watch you sleep for hours”

And it ended with one little lie


Chorus

(Both) One little lie …

(Male) That’s all it takes

(Both) One little lie …

(Female) Made our hearts break

(Both) One little lie …

(Male) Now we’ve gone separate ways

(No Vocals but play the ‘one little lie’ hook)


Bridge

What we had was eternal trust

And it ended with one night of lust

Do we give our love one more try

Or kiss forever goodbye..?


Solo = Chorus without VOX


(Male)

Sometimes you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone

(Female)

I should have listened to the words in that song

At the time it was fun; it didn’t seem so wrong

(Male)

And it ended with one little lie…


(Both) One little lie …

(Male) That’s all it takes

(Both) One little lie …

(Female) Made our hearts break

(Both) One little lie …

(Male) Now we’ve gone separate ways

And it ended with one little lie…

(Female) I gave it all away with one little lie…

Both We lost it all … … with one little lie.
