    G              C
Throw the body in the lake
         Em    D         C      G
And take a chance that no one finds out
    Em      D         C      G
And take a chance that no one finds out


         G                    C
Your life is stories that you fake 
    Em      D          C
And rake like leaves behind you


   G                 C
So row the boat into the bay 
  Em      D         C
And say you've lost your compass


        G                   C
Your life is pieces that you play
     Em     D         C
And maybe they will trump us


 G                       C
Blow the kiss you never felt
     Em    D         C
And belt your wife for smiling


 G               C
Love is lying by yourself 
   Em     D    C         G
Alone awake and crying


  G
Honey 
 G     Em   C        G
Honey, even if you knew
Em   C       G
Even if you knew
   D                                                  
What lies, what lies behind that honeymoon


Bridge -x2-: G  C  Em  D


 G                          C
Sew the ribbon round your throat
    Em       D          C
And coat your mouth with honey


         G                       C
Your life is books you never wrote
     Em      D        C
And tote only for money


 G                   C
Dig a hole into the ground
     Em       D         C
And pound the earth in outrage


         G                            C
Your life is treasures that you've found
       Em        D           C
And drowned in lakes that you've made


 G                       C
Show the soul you never had
   Em      D         C
a fad that will not save you


       G                       C
Your life is hiding all the bad
     Em      D         C 
And sad smiles that break you


  G
Honey 
 G     Em   C        G
Honey, even if you knew
Em   C       G
Even if you knew
   D                                                  
What lies, what lies behind that honeymoon

Bridge:
  G                                  C
Honey if you took back all the promises and rings 
             Em                                    D
And little things and when he sings would you still know 
  D
What lies behind that honeymoon


 G                                     C
Movies that you make and you hit stop and you hit play 
         Em                                  D
And the scenes are day by day would you still know 
  D
What lies behind that honeymoon


  G                                        C
Comb through all facts to learn his words are rather heady 
            Em                              D
Says he's ready to go steady would you still know 
   D
What lies behind that honeymoon


 G                                               C
Pies that you will bake when you are sittin in the kitchen 
          Em                                        D
Are you listenin to what your missing would you still know
  D
What lies behind that honeymoon


 G                                     C               
Be the first to crack when your new love must be measured
         Em                                    D
Under pressure under pleasure would you still know
 D
What lies behind that honeymoon


  G                             C
Suckle on the lack of all the hugs you never got
         Em                                       D 
And if you rot it's what you bought would you still know 
 D
What lies behind that honeymoon


 G                                        C
Dew lies on the haystack you were tied and you were tethered 
        Em                                        D
Like a feather in stormy weather would you still know 
 D
What lies behind that honeymoon


 G                                   C 
Be the first to crack when your new love must be measured 
          Em                                    D
Under pressure under pleasure would you still know 
 D
What lies behind that honeymoon

G

 Em       C            G
What lies beyond the honeymoon.
 Em      C            G
What lies beyond the honeymoon.
