(Jan Crutchfield)

As her key unlocks the front door
I reach out to find a light so she can see
Then I wait to hear her story
Why she stayed out late tonight & she tells me
That it really wasn't her fault
If she'd had her ways she'd have been home hours ago
That's when her tears start to flowin'
& she swears it's true but in my heart I know

When I'm sure that I've convinced her
That I believe her story then I turn away
I don't let her know she's hurt me
'Cause the words stick in my throat I wanna say
& I'm so afraid I'll lose her
If she knew I knew the truth she just might go
So I listen to her story
Try to hide the hurt, but in my heart I know

She's lying, there's not a word of truth in her crying
& still I've got this awful urge to take her in my arms & hold her tight
God, I know she's lying, a little more of me keeps on dying
Oh how I wish that I could be the one that she's been lyin' with tonight
Instead of me I'd rather be the one that she's been lyin' with tonight
She's lying

    I have performed this song at several concerts. The male singer is in love with a lady who he knows is cheating on him. She thinks he knows this, but he tries to convince her that he does not know this and that he believes her story for coming home so late in the evening. He really loves her, he is hurting inside, and he knows all along that she is lying.He finishes the song with a play on words: Oh How I Wish I Could Be The One That She's Been Lying With Tonight, Instead Of Me I'd Rather Be The One That She's Been Lying With Tonight, She's Lying.
