Hypocrites

about

A friend of mine wrote most of the words for this song shortly after his grandmother died. I was affected by the tone, and set his words to this music I had already put together. Little did I know I would feel its impact again when my own grandmother passed.

lyrics

Hypocrites

I wanted to show you
That I really loved you so
But you had to go, and I'm not crying
Today, 'cause I know you're smiling
You were the best
And still you shine
Deep inside
Deep in pride

Hypocrites, we are hypocrites
With faces full of promises and words full of lies
Hypocrites, we are hypocrites
With faces full of promises and words full of lies

The hypocrites came
And the love was on their faces
Just to think they were here
Because of you
I wanted to tell you
That I really loved you so
But you had to go away
And I'm not crying

Hypocrites, we are hypocrites
With faces full of promises and words full of lies
Hypocrites, we are hypocrites
With faces full of promises and words full of lies

The hypocrites came
And the love was on their faces
Just to think they were here
Because of you
I wanted to tell you
That I really loved you so
And still you shine
Deep inside

Hypocrites, we are hypocrites
With faces full of promises and words full of lies
Hypocrites, we are hypocrites
With faces full of promises and words full of lies
