Why do people lie?
Lyin' only breaks their hearts,
And tears their lives apart,
Makin' 'em cry.
Tell me why.

Even if I try,
Even if I lie to little babe.
I know she'll never leave me,
She'll stay by my side.

Tell me why do the people say,
"She ain't lovin' you anyway.
So while you keep believin' it brother,
She'll keep makin' her time,
Right before your eyes."?
Tell me why they gotta lie.

When I looked I had to look again.
In my eyes a revelation.
In her arms the fascination,
Of a friend.

(Instrumental)

When I looked I had to look again.
In my eyes a revelation.
In her arms the fascination,
Of a friend.

Now I let 'em know,
When people say "I told you so.".
I say, "Learnin' don't come easy, baby.",
I've been makin' like a fool.

Tell me why,
Why is it true?
Why?
Tell me why do people lie?

Tell me why.
Why do they lie?
Oh, why do they lie?
Tell me, tell me why.
Why do people lie to me.
Somebody here is lyin' to me.
I just don't know whether to believe them,
Whether to give them an account,
To form a doubt, don't want to be counted out.
Follow your heart, babe,
Follow your heart, yeah,
Follow your heart, right on,
Follow your heart.
