So big.  
"...I lied."

"Why?"

"Lord, I don't know. Why does anyone lie? 'Cause we're scared or crazy, maybe just 'cause we're mean. I guess there's a million reasons to lie, and I might've told that many...but none like that. I guess there's always that one lie we never get over."

"What?"

"Oh, maybe you don't know about it yet. Maybe you never told a lie so big it can eat a part of you.

"But if you ever do...and if you get lucky...you might get a chance to set it right. Just one chance to change it.

"Then it's gone. And it never comes again."
