One day you say you love me
The next day it's goodbye
The next you say you're sorry
And you wanna give it one more try

Ooh, the way you change your mind
Time and time again
Well, I don't know if I'm behind
Or just about to end, hey

Certain lies, smiles and frowns
The goin' ups and the comin' downs

Ooh, hoo
Ooh, hoo

One minute you're warm and lovin'
The next your heart's grown cold
The way you keep me guessin'
Is killin' my soul

Ooh, just when my hopes run high
And I think I've got it made
Hey...hey...along comes a rainy day
To rain on my parade, hey, hey, hey

Certain lies, smiles and frowns
The goin' ups and the comin' downs

Oh...ho...
I don't know just what it is about you
That keeps me from walkin' out the door
Mmm...mmm...hmm...
Just when I think that I can get along without you
You just say something nice
And I come struttin' back for more

One day our world's a dream
Next it falls apart, mmm, hmm
And I don't even think you know
What you're doin' to my heart

Mmm, I guess I'll never learn
Some people never do
But when I feel like givin' up
I just can't give up on you, hey, hey, hey

Certain lies, smiles and frowns, huh
The goin' ups and the comin' downs, hey, hey, hey
Certain lies, smiles and frowns
The goin' ups and the comin' downs

Certain lies, smiles and frowns
The goin' ups and the comin' downs, hey, hey, hey, hey
Certain lies, smiles and frowns
The goin' ups
