Emmylou Harris – Telling Me Lies lyrics

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
You 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 right to your door
I cover my ears...
[ strings ]
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 cover my ears...
I cover my ears...
