lyrics

Beautiful Lie (Abe Loomis)

The cemetery was like a celebration
A wedding train was swinging through the fields
A pageant worthy of the adoration
Magi bowing down and making deals

I don’t care if it’s a beautiful lie
The piazza soaked with rain
The morning bells’ refrain
I don’t care if it’s a beautiful lie
Tell me again

The terraces hold flowers and generations
Your cousin’s cousin finds a home right here
Glad and grateful for your nightly patience
Standing at the graveside pouring beer

(chorus)

You stood there blowing smoke into the starlight
The cool marble pressed against your cheek
Down below, the Adriatic roaring
Neither of us ready yet to speak
