The Band Perry - You Lie Lyrics

It ain't complicated

Well, I've grown to hate it

I never liked the taste of crow but baby I ate it

They tried to warn me

They said that you were ornery

So don't bring me those big brown eyes and tell me that you're sorry

Well you might as well throw gasoline on a fire

The way you lie



You lie like a priceless Persian rug on a rich man's floor

You lie like a coon dog basking in the sunshine on my porch

You lie like a penny in the parking lot at the grocery store

It just comes way too natural to you

The way you lie



That ain't my perfume

I bet she had a curfew

You told me you were out with the boys and baby I believed you

So why you lookin' so nervous

You know you're gonna deserve this

I oughta kill you right now and do the whole wide world a service

Well my daddy's gonna straighten you out like a piece of wire, like a piece of wire

The way you lie



You lie like the man with the slick black hair who sold me that Ford

You lie like a palm tree in the back yard after last month's storm

You lie like a penny in the parking lot at the grocery store

It just comes way too natural to you

The way you lie



Well, I'll tell you what I'm gonna do

I'm gonna drive into the big ol' muddy river

I'm gonna park my car in the middle of the mile-long bridge

And then I'm gonna cry well maybe just a little

Then I'm gonna slip off the ring that you put on my finger

Give it a big ol' fling and watch it sink

Down, down, down

There it's gonna lie

Until the Lord comes back around



Because you lie like a priceless Persian rug on a rich man's floor

You lie like a coon dog basking in the sunshine on my porch

You like like a penny in the parking lot at the grocery store

It just comes so dang natural to you

The way you lie

The way you lie

Well it's what you do, it's who you are
