Robert Ellis – Only Lies lyrics

You tell yourself that you can trust him
That you know him better than anybody can
You don't believe the things they tell you
When the evidence is stacked against your man

Oh, I've seen it with my own eyes and I do not want to tell you lies
But you asked me here to help you to feel better

Only lies can comfort you
Only lies will see you through
Just because a thing's convenient
Well, that doesn't make it true
Only lies can comfort you

Well, that's fine if that's what you want
I'm sure there's some good reason for where he's gone
Maybe he was driving and the car broke down
And he's stuck on the interstate outside of town

Oh, and what good is the truth when it causes so much pain for you?
Your optimism's up against a wall

Only lies can comfort you
Only lies will see you through
Just because a thing's convenient
Well, that doesn't make it true
Only lies can comfort you

Only lies can comfort you
Only lies will see you through
Just because a thing's convenient
Well, that doesn't make it true
Only lies can comfort you
