Always Deceiving

Capo 1

F E Am

G Am


She said it’s always one thing or another
Dig your own grave or get it dug for you
She asked if I was looking for a lover
I said I didn’t know but I’ll never lie to you

She laid me down on her canvas made of skin
Said she’d like to paint my portrait
She wondered if she could draw away all of my sins
I told her that’s what I was wanting

And so she brushed her hair and covered me in moonlight
Said her temperance was fleeting
All night long she bled into a broken glass of red wine
I said I loved to love her singing

She said it’s always one blessing or another
In the morning I breathed her breathing
She asked if I believed fortune favors lovers
Or if love was always deceiving
