Edwin Mccain — How Can You Say That lyrics

The air that you breathe it must be poison
And you're dressed up in your best disguise
I don't want to hear what you have to say
It's there in your eyes when you look away
These beautiful words are turning into lies

Chorus:
How can you say that to me

The light that still shines is just an illusion
Just a memory from a burned out star
Its promise has come from so far away
It's fighting through sadness and years of decay
And it's a wonder it ever made it this far

[Chorus:]

After all of those secrets you let me believe
There's no rose petal air, there's just thorns when I breathe
How can you say that

It's not this silence that screams in my mind
Each day I feel like I'm falling behind
Living in shadows, still getting burned
When will I ever learn

[Chorus:]

After all those secrets you let me believe
There's no rose petal air, there's just thorns when I breathe
How can you say that to me
