The Littlest Things

Streetlight Manifesto


The first time that he came to me
I was a young boy, little did I not believe
I had a hole in my heart and I was looking for a piece that fit
The next time I was privy to
The dirty secrets, all the little hidden clues
And when I added it up, I knew a little by little won’t do

Can anybody out there tell me something true?
Preferably something that no one can dispute
When everybody’s spilling lifelong secrets
I’m betting safely I’m a man who will keep his
Despite his weakness
He’ll take his secrets to the grave
And we will leave it all
Don’t ever leave anyone you love behind
So get your fill while you're alive
Don’t you ever let them take you alive

And I don’t know where the lies end and the truth begins
Don’t listen to anyone telling you anything
Isn’t true 'cause it’s all relative
Though I know it’ll never ever come to this
I have a secret
And the secret is there was a lie
That I told myself till it became the truth

Rest assured I have a plan b in my mind
If all the webs I weave should ever come and unwind
But I’ve got plenty of time
I still believe
In mysteries
And all the lies
It never ends
And all their lame are rotting in their ground
Our plan to never settle down

I took the medicine
But the pills won’t work
The pills they don’t do anything
But rearrange all the littlest things
And I know a little bit
But that bit won’t do
The bit I know is irrelevant
So I guess this song is irrelevant too
