  • Eyes don't lie
    Eyes don't lie
    Eyes don't lie

    Heard you tried to sell your soul to another
    Heard you tried to dance around
    With flames are made from angels undercover
    But I see the way your face just changed
    As if you lost a lover
    Did you lose a lover? Oh

    And I know the story goes
    You say you really tried, you didn't try at all
    So now you hate the world
    It hates you back is your excuse to fall
    You say you're dead inside
    So you decide to cut off everyone
    Cut off everyone

    Are you a stranger? (Are you a stranger?)
    But you seem so familiar
    It's hard to explain, yeah (it's hard to explain, yeah)
    From what I can see, from what I can see
    And maybe I'm broken
    But my arms are wide open for ya
    And you'll never know it, but you're just like me
    From what I can see

    Heard you try to place the blame on your brother
    Heard it's everybody else's fault
    You're home alone, inside for summer
    Now you can't deny the times you lied and cried, you missed your mother
    Cried and missed your mother, oh

    And I know the story goes
    You say you really tried, you didn't try at all
    So now you hate the world
    It hates you back is your excuse to fall
    You say you're dead inside
    So you decide to cut off everyone
    Cut off everyone

    Are you a stranger? (Are you a stranger?)
    But you seem so familiar
    It's hard to explain, yeah (it's hard to explain, yeah)
    From what I can see, from what I can see
    And maybe I'm broken
    But my arms are wide open for ya
    And you'll never know it, but you're just like me
    From what I can see

    Eyes don't lie
    Eyes don't lie
    Eyes don't lie
    Eyes don't lie

    Are you a stranger? (Are you a stranger?)
    But you seem so familiar
    It's hard to explain, yeah (it's hard to explain, yeah)
    From what I can see, from what I can see
    And maybe I'm broken
    But my arms are wide open for ya
    And you'll never know it, but you're just like me
    From what I can see (eyes don't lie) Writer/s: Eren Ross Cannata, Sam Homaee, Toni Watson
