(Philip Lynott)

One-two-three.


Don't believe me if I tell you,
Not a word of this is true.
Don't believe me if I tell you,
Especially if I tell you that I'm in love with you.


Don't believe me if I tell you
That I wrote this song for you.
There just might be some other silly, pretty girl
I'm singing it to.


Don't believe a word,
'cause words are only spoken.
And a heart is like a promise,
Meant to be broken.


Don't believe a word,
For words can tell lies.
And lies are no comfort
When there's tears in your eyes.


Don't believe me if I tell you,
Not a word of this is true.
Don't believe me if I tell you,
Especially if I tell you that I'm in love with you.


Don't believe a word.
Lord, don't believe a word.
Don't believe me, don't believe me.
Oh, not a single word.
Oh, yeah.

    He's telling her what she wants to hear so he can keep her around, but nothing he says is true. I got to play that game, very painful, especially when the words you're saying ARE true.
