Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes – Baby Don't Lie lyrics

Baby Don't Lie
(J. Lyon/B. Bandiera)

I'm stranded on the outside where I don't belong
I'm treated like a stranger
But I'm strong
I know you're in there trying on someone new
You're tellin' all your friends that he's just right for you

No, no baby, don't lie
No baby, don't lie
Baby, don't lie
Baby, don't lie to yourself

You're afraid to settle down
Afraid you'll settle in
If your wings ever touch the ground
You'll never soar again
I think it's time you gave my love an honest try
All those other guys will never make you fly

Baby, don't lie
Baby, don't lie
No, baby, don't lie
Baby, don't lie to yourself

I will wait forever
If you want me to
I would wait forever
If it's what I gotta do
To get next to you
Ah, yea!

Baby, don't lie
Baby, don't lie
No, baby, don't lie
Baby, don't lie to yourself
Don't lie to yourself
Baby, don't lie
Now baby, don't lie
No no
Tell the truth, baby
