I want to tell you lies......

I want to tell the little girl her mam is fine
To tell the dad we got his daughter out in time
To tell the wife her husband will be home tonight
I cant tell the truth....I want to tell them lies

You didnt put their seat belts on,you feel you killed your kids
I want to say you didnt...but in a way you did
You pound your fists into my chest,you're hurting deep inside
I want to say its ok......I want to tell you lies

You left the chemicals withing his reach,now its in his eyes
I want to sy your son will see,not tell you that hes blind
You ask he if hes ok..with pleading in your eyes
I want to say yes ....I want to tell you lies

I can see your tears....as your life goes up in smoke
If you had maintained that smoke alarm...your children might have woke
You grab my arm.....and ask if they are alive
I dont want to say they are dead......I want to tell you lies

I want to tell you shes ok...you didnt take her life
I know that you love her......youd never hurt your wife
I know you thought you didnt have too much to drink,that you thought you could drive
I dont want to say how stupid you were....
I want to tell you lies

You left her for a moment,sure it happens all the time
She could never get up there....dammit she cant even climb
I want to say her necks not broken,that shes sure to be fine
I cant tell you shes paralyzed...I want to tell you lies

The fact that you were speeding caused the car to overturn
And we couldnt get them out of there before the whole thing burned
You ask if they suffered....i know they burned alive
I dont want to tell you that ...I want to tell you lies

I want to tell the young lad.....his mate didnt dies in vain
He thought it would be cool....to try and beat the train
I cant tell him this will stay with him for life
I want to say you'll forget...I want to tell him lies

We are fireman...to tell the truth..until our day is through
Ordinary people...doing what we do
But do the lies begin....when you ask if we are fine
We hurt like you do....sometimes we have to tell you lies

(I thank God im a fireman...and that God Willing i'll it all over again tomorrow......its not glamourous,sexy,glitzy or attractive...but im proud.......try walking in our shoes.....its us...just like you)
