He says he's your friend, but you don't see him
He says that he's so damn busy, but he don't do nothing at all
You get him on the phone, he was just gonna call you
Says he's been thinking about old times, and looking at your picture on the wall
He's stringin' you the same old lines, that he puts everyone through
They're only lies, intentions just won't do
For a time he feels no wrong, 'till he finds out we've caught on
He's stringin' a line, he's stringin' a line
So you try to forget, but that ain't so easy
'Cause if you've got one small doubt, there was never anything there
You dangle on a line, a captive fool
Well you know he'll try again, and it will just be the same as last time
He's stringin' you the same old lines, that he puts everyone through
They're only lies, intentions just won't do
For a time he feels no wrong, 'till he finds we've all caught on
He's stringin' a line, he's stringin' a line
He's stringin' you the same old lines, that he puts everyone through
They're only lies, intentions just won't do
For a time he feels no wrong, 'till he finds out we've caught on
He's stringin' a line, he's stringin' a line
