I watched as he held her and kissed her goodnight
Heard every word as I stood out of sight
Just like a fool everything he believed
Nothing but sweet lies she once told to me.

Fool hearted boy should I tell what I know
Just how she'd win love and then let it go
Too much in love and too far gone to see
It's only sweet lies she once told to me.

Once he's not fallin' he won't want her stop
She'll fill him up high then let him drop
Down with the others who never could see
It's only sweet lies she once told to me.

She'll whisper sweet words and make his head spin
He'll never know of the trouble that he's in
Till it's all over and he'll surely see
It's only sweet lies she once told to me.

--- Instrumental ---

Oh, what I'd give just to hear her once more
Whisper the same things she whispered before
I'm still in love any blind man could see
I love those lies she once told to me.

He thinks he'll win her cause she says she cares
That's just her game and she won't play it fair
She'll leave him sad full of deep misery
With all those sweet lies she once told to me.

She couldn't be true it's sad but it's so
How can she love with a heart that's cold as snow
He's doomed to heartaches but too blind to see
Nothing but sweet lies she once told to me.

She'll whisper sweet words and make his head spin
He'll never know of the trouble that he's in
Till it's all over and he'll surely see
It's only sweet lies she once told to me...
