Aimee Mann – Living A Lie lyrics

You can see yourself in the side mirror
Tossing your hair
If no one is there
Then why do you care?
Though I let you think there was no witness to
All of your crimes
I knew what you were
A climber that climbs

[Chorus:]
I'm living a lie,
You're living it too
Cause I live it with you
I'm living a lie, a lie can't tell
So wait for the crack in the shell

Noone bears a grudge like a boy genius,
Just past his prime
Building his cage, a bar at a time
For every open arm there's a cold shoulder
Waiting to turn
People to blame
Bridges to burn.

[Chorus:]
I'm living a lie,
You're living it too
Cause I live it with you
I'm living a lie, a lie can't tell
So wait for the crack in the shell

But a girl comes around,
At the time when your ground
Is the shakiest leaves on the tree
Creating for you a persona or two
Or an out and out mythology
Now there's too many cooks
But you like how it looks
When they're bowing and calling you boss
But the powers that were invested in her
And now willing means taking a loss.

[Chorus:]
I'm living a lie,
You're living it too
Cause I live it with you
I'm living a lie, a lie can tell
So wait for the crack in the shell
Yeah wait for the crack in the shell
