Lyrics
If You Ever Lie Kristjan / CopperDogMusic / 2007


If you ever lie, let it be to save a friend
If you ever steal, let it be the heart of a lover
If you ever cheat, cheat the Grim Reaper
And if you drink, always drink to a friend

A mother's words, told to a young one
Still echo down to this day
All the wisdom of her ages
In the words she had to say

If you ever lie, let it be to save a friend
If you ever steal, let it be the heart of a lover
If you ever cheat, cheat the Grim Reaper
And if you drink, always drink to a friend

The Golden Rules, that we live by
Can sometimes rust and tarnish with the age
I get confused and I lose direction
Till I remember what she had to say

If you ever lie, let it be to save a friend
If you ever steal, let it be the heart of a lover
If you ever cheat, cheat the Grim Reaper
And if you drink, always drink to a friend
