Don't say yes if you can't say no
Victim of a system, say it isn't so
Squatted on the doorstep
Swallowed on the blow
Leaving without you, can't say no

Halfway starts with happiness for me
Halfway house, lost kitten in a street
Hit me where it hurts
I'm coming home to lose
Kitten on the catwalk, high-heeled shoes

No more hotheaded Saturdays
They got it, they want it, they give it away
Tell me one thing you would never do
I was looking for a hooker when I found you

You've got my eyes, you've got my eyes
You'll never be mine
But you got my eyes

When you lie
I cover it up
When you hide
I cover it up
When you cry
I cover it up
When you come undone
I cover it up

So pent up I was coming onto you
Happy in the night-time, howling at the moon
Sipping on a cocktail, drinking in the loo
There's something about you that I hold on to

You've got my eyes, you've got my eyes
You'll never be mine
But you got my eyes

When you lie
I cover it up
When you hide
I cover it up
When you cry
I cover it up
When you blend
I cover it up

When you lie
I cover it up
When you hide
I cover it up
When you cry
I cover it up
When you come undone
I cover it up

They got it, they want it, they give it away (x4)

When you lie
I cover it up
When you hide
I cover it up
When you cry
I cover it up
When you come undone
I cover it up

    Fantastic song. I'm probably wrong, but it sounds like she has a love for a hooker/stripper with a drug problem? That's what I thought at first, but then the part where she says "you've got my eyes" sounds like she's talking about a child that she gave up. And the chorus "when you lie, i cover it up, when you hide, i cover it up" sounds like she's defending the person's problem. Maybe the song is coming from two different perspectives? I really wanna hear what other people think because I'm confused. Emily haines never fails to write an amazing yet intriguing piece.
