Well it's over and gone
Girl tell me the truth
Don't try to lie about it
Someone else has been with you
Judas couldn't hide it any better than this
The secret's out darling
Betrayed by a kiss
Well it's right here with us baby
Though it really can't be seen
It's the smell of his seduction
And it makes it hard to breathe
A tender touch can hit you so much harder than a fist
Not a single word was spoken
You've been betrayed by a kiss
Where did we go wrong
And blow that candle out

How'd love so strong

Learn to fill a house with doubts
And how long have I been so blind
And been the odd man out

SOLO

Now the truth is so hard
That we choose to lie
And shout our denials
Till the ducts have run dry
No one's there to cover up the last track that you missed
It's an intimate moment
To be betrayed by a kiss
Tender lips can hit you so much harder than a fist
It's a damnable heartbreak
To be betrayed by a kiss





From Radney Foster "See What You Want To See"
Arista Records 1998
PolyGram Intl Publishing/St Julien Music(ASCAP)
