Tracy Chapman – Telling Stories – 1999

    Paroles

    There is fiction in the space between
    The lines on your page of memories
    Write it down but it doesn’t mean
    You’re not just telling stories
    There is fiction in the space between
    You and reality
    You will do and say anything
    To make your everyday life seem less mundane
    There is fiction in the space between
    You and me

    There’s a science fiction in the space between
    You and me
    A fabrication of a grand scheme
    Where I am the scary monster
    I eat the city and as I leave the scene
    In my spaceship I am laughing
    In your remembrance of your bad dream
    There’s no one but you standing

    Leave the pity and the blame
    For the ones who do not speak
    You write the words to get respect and compassion
    And for posterity
    You write the words and make believe
    There is truth in the space between

    There is fiction in the space between
    You and everybody
    Give us all what we need
    Give us one more sad sordid story
    But in the fiction of the space between
    Sometimes a lie is the best thing
    Sometimes a lie is the best thing

    Oh the best thing
    Is the best thing
