In a small moment

In a small moment
She accepted credit for something she did not do
She said she’d done the water color in her bedroom
But it was done by a friend from school
Just a little lie
No one would discover
At least not very soon

In a small moment
Just a little lie
When she wasn’t looking it just slipped on by

In a small moment
In a restaurant where she worked the late night shift
She short changed a sailor and made five
You could never really call it a theft
Just a little lie
Swept up in her apron and kept as a well deserved gift
In a small moment
Just a little lie
When she wasn’t looking it just slipped on by

In a small moment
She cheated on her lover and placed it in the back of her mind
As long as nobody knew the truth about her
It could never really be unkind
Just a little lie
That slipped beside her as she tossed and turned in her alibis
