City girls just seem to find out early how to open doors with just a smile
A rich old man and she won't have to worry she'll dress up all in lace and go in style
Late at night a big old house gets lonely I guess every form of refuge has it's price
And it breaks her heart to think her love is only
Given to a man with hands as cold as ice
So she tells him she must go out for the evening
To comfort an old friend who's feeling down
But he knows where she's going as she's leaving
She's headed for the cheatin' side of town
You can't hide your lyin' eyes and your smile has been disguised
I thought by now you'd realize there ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes
[ guitar ]
On the other side of town a boy is waiting
With fiery eyes and dreams no one could steal
She drives on through the night anticipating
Cause he makes her feel the way she used to feel
She rushes to his arms they fall together she whispers that it's only for a while
She swears that soon she'll be coming back forever
She pulls away and leaves him with a smile
She gets up and pours herself a strong one and stares out at the stars up in the sky
Another night it's gonna be a long one
She draws the shade and hangs her head to cry
She wonders how it ever got this crazy she thinks about a boy she knew in school
Did she get tired or did she just get lazy she's so far gone she feels just like a fool
My oh my you sure know how to arrange things you set it up so well so carefully
Ain't it funny how your new life didn't change things
You're still the same old girl you used to be
You can't hide your lyin' eyes...
There ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes
