My friends all ask me
How i'm doin
Since you took you sweet love away
And i kno that they're
Just showin they care
But what do they expect me to say

So i lie
I tell them i'm alright
I lie
I tell them i'm fine
I don't think they really wanna know the truth
What's the use?
What can they do?
So i look them straight in the eye
And i lie

They offer a shoulder to cry on
Anytime, i just have to call
But little do they know
The river that would flow
If i let the first tear drops fall

So i lie
I tell them i'm alright
I lie
I tell them i'm fine
I don't think they really wanna know the truth
What's the use?
What can they do?
So i look them straight in the eye
And i lie

I've often wondered what i'd do
If i were to run into you
Would my heart fall at your feet
Would my foolish pride get the best of me
Well honestly i believe

That i'd lie
And tell you i'm alright
I'd lie i'd tell you i'm fine
I could never ever let you know the truth
That i'm still in love and so confused
So i'd hide my pain deep inside
Then i'd look you straight in the eye
And i'd lie
