Linda Ronstadt - Telling Me Lies

rate me

written by Linda Thompson and Betty Cook

© 1985 Linda Thompson / Firesign Music Ltd.

They say a woman's a fool for weeping

A fool to break her own heart

But I can't hold the secret I'm keeping

I'm breaking apart

Can't seem to mind my own business

Whatever I try turns out wrong

I seem like my own false witness

And I can't go on

I cover my ears I close my eyes

Still hear your voice and it's telling me lies

Telling me lies

You told me you needed my company

And I believed in your flattering ways

Told me you needed me forever

Nearly gave you the rest of my days

Should've seen you for what you are

Should never have come back for more

Should've locked up all my silver

Brought the key back to your door

I cover my ears I close my eyes

Still hear your voice and it's telling me lies

Telling me lies

You don't know what a chance is

Until you have to seize one

You don't know what a man is

Until you have to please one

Don't put your life in the hands of a man

With a face for every season

Don't waste your time in the arms of a man

Who's no stranger to treason

I cover my ears I close my eyes

Still hear your voice and it's telling me lies

Telling me lies

I cover my ears I close my eyes

Still hear your voice and it's telling me lies

I cover my ears I close my eyes

Still hear your voice and it's telling me lies
