Status Quo – Lies 1981



Status Quo – Lies 1981

I had another drink after another drink
and then I tried to crawl to the door
I had another smoke after another joke
and then I couldn’t take any more
It didn’t change a thing, not any single thing,
when someone tried to tell me for sure
I heard another voice that said I wasn’t in a dream
I read a word or two about everything
I never knew the way that it oughta have been
They never told me a thing about it
I never did know a thing about it
And the lies in the eyes of a thousand eyes they won’t go away
And the times that I tried are the times that I find they don’t show today
But you make me feel so good

I woke up after four, still lying on the floor,
and waiting to be carried away
I woke up once again, a little after ten,
will things be any better today
It doesn’t change you see, it only changes me,
well someone tried to tell me I’m sure
I’m gonna hear a voice and know it isn’t in a dream
I’m gonna read the lines and get a look between
I never knew the way that it oughta have been
They never told me a thing about it
I never did know a thing about it
And the lies in the eyes of a thousand eyes, they won’t go away
And the times that I tried, are the times that I find they don’t show today
But you make me feel so good

I’m going back to school, I’m gonna check the rule,
and see if I get carried away
I’m going back again, I’m gonna try again,
don’t listen what the people might say
It doesn’t change a thing, not any single thing,
well someone tried to tell me for sure
I’m gonna hear a voice and know it isn’t in a dream
I’m gonna read the lines and get a look between
I never knew the way that it oughta have been
They never told me a thing about it
I never did know a thing about it
And the lies in the eyes of a thousand eyes, they won’t go away
And the times that I tried, are the times that I find they don’t show today
But you make me feel so good

I’m gonna hear a voice and know it isn’t in a dream
I’m gonna read the lines and get a look between
I never knew the way that it oughta have been
They never told me a thing about it
I never did know a thing about it
And the lies in the eyes of a thousand eyes, they won’t go away
And the times that I tried, are the times that I find they don’t show today
And the lies in the eyes of a thousand eyes, they won’t go away
And the times that I tried, are the times that I find they don’t show today
And the lies in the eyes of a thousand eyes, they won’t go away
And the times that I tried, are the times that I find they don’t show today
And the lies in the eyes of a thousand eyes, they won’t go away
And the lies in the eyes of a thousand eyes, they won’t go away
And the lies in the eyes of a thousand eyes, they won’t go away
