The Way I Lie

  • I, I remember when, when we first met
    Not in subterranean
    You were young, free of confusion
    And I could see you lived just for the moment

    I didn't hesitate, I took you by the waist
    And took what you were giving
    And you said, oh, is that how you do it
    Then let's get to it, with you I feel free

    Darlin', you, you keep holdin' on
    Tryin' to be strong but it won't be long
    Before you, you ask me to say
    That we'll be ok so I play along
    But you don't notice the way I lie
    Way I lie, oh, yeah

    Yes, we had love but we had bad timing
    And there's nothing you can do, no
    When all that you're livin' for
    Come tumblin' to the floor and now you are free

    Darlin', you, you keep holdin' on
    Tryin' to be strong but it won't be long
    Before you, you ask me to say
    That we'll be ok so I play along

    But you don't notice the way I lie
    Outside a city sleeps, inside you weep
    We took it all too far
    But it's because of truth I believe it too
    We have to know who we are

    Darling you, you ask me to say
    That we'll be ok so I play along
    But you still don't notice the way I lie
    Way I lie

    I say you, you don't notice the way I lie
    I say you, you don't notice the way I lie
    I say you, you don't notice the way I lie
    I say you, you don't notice the way I lie
    I say you, you don't notice the way I lie, lie
    I say you, you don't notice the way I lie Writer/s: GUS ISIDORE, MARCUS BROWN, PETER JOHN VETTESE, SEAL SAMUEL
