  • Gaslighter, denier
    Doin' anything to get your ass farther
    Gaslighter, big timer
    Repeating all of the mistakes of your father

    We moved to California and we followed your dreams
    I believed in the promises you made to me
    Swore that night 'till death do us part
    But you lie-lie-lie-lie-lied
    Hollywood welcomed you with open doors
    No matter what they gave you, you still wanted more
    Acting all above it when our friends divorced
    What a lie-lie-lie-lie-lie
    You're such a

    Gaslighter, denier
    Doin' anything to get your ass farther
    Gaslighter, big timer
    Repeating all of the mistakes of your father
    Gaslighter, you broke me
    You're sorry, but where's my apology?
    Gaslighter, you liar

    You thought I wouldn't see it if you put it in my face
    Give you all my money, you'll gladly walk away
    You think it's justifiable, I think it's pretty cruel
    And you know you lie best when you lie to you
    'Cause, boy, you know exactly what you did on my boat
    And, boy, that's exactly why you ain't comin' home
    Save your tired stories for your new someone else
    'Cause they're lie-lie-lie-lie-lies
    Look out, you little

    Gaslighter, denier
    Doin' anything to get your ass farther
    Gaslighter, big timer
    Repeating all of the mistakes of your father
    Gaslighter, you broke me
    You're sorry, but where's my apology?
    Gaslighter, you liar

    You just had to start a fire, had to start a fire
    Couldn't take yourself on a road a little higher
    Had to burn it up, had to tear it down
    Tried to say I'm crazy
    Babe, we know I'm not crazy, that's you
    Gaslighting
    You're a lie-lie-lie-liar
    Oh, honey, that's you
    Gaslighting
    You made your bed and then your bed caught fire
    Gaslighter, I'm your mirror
    Standin' right here until you can see how you broke me
    Yeah, I'm broken
    You're still sorry, and there's still no apology

    Gaslighter, denier
    Doin' anything to get your ass farther
    Gaslighter, big timer
    Repeating all of the mistakes of your father
    Gaslighter, you broke me (gaslighter)
    You're sorry, but where's my apology?
    Gaslighter, you liar Writer/s: Emily Strayer, Jack Antonoff, Martie Maguire, Natalie Maines
