I wrote this dirty groove jam back in February, with my good friend David L Graham from McMinnville, Tennessee.
It was written during the FAWM songwriting challenge (the challenge being to write 14 songs in the 28 days of February).


We Run On Lies - (David L Graham / Pete Murphy)

I wish I could spit out my lonely pain
But you want to get lost on lovers' lane
You think your kiss can wake the dead
A little drive and a drink and we'll be back in bed

You don't want to talk
You don't want to tell me why
But we both can see
We were made for speed
And we run... run... we run on lies

You knock my heart and what I say I feel
Say my lips can read how much your love's real
I tell myself you're probably right
With pretty nights and a now made of stolen starlight


I pretend that we're both into making love better
You pretend that you won't ever regret it
We run around in circles like running's what it takes
And we both pretend hearts will never break
