La la lie, La la lie, La la lie

I've got a real one for you
I'm done with compromise
Lies are wide and black and blue
They hide inside those big brown eyes
You've gotten dirty, angel
Aren't you ready to come clean?
I am looking down with sorrow
You say that I'm being mean….

Don't you hear me when I say I'm lonely?
Do I kid myself to think that I.. I.. I…
Am your one and only?

I can't tell you how many times I've cried
Over you, my baby..
I've had one too many sleepless nights
Over you, my baby..

Baby….

Can't you see I'm wounded baby?
Go ahead and put me down
You keep saying that I'm crazy
There's just rumours going round
I am dying to believe you
Tell me what should I do
Who would want to play a fool
And then find out that it's true?

Don't you hear me when I say I'm lonely?
Do I kid myself to think that I.. I.. I…
Am your one and only?

I can't tell you how many times I've cried
Over you, my baby..
I've had one too many sleepless nights
Over you, my baby..

Baby….

Cross your heart and hope to die
White or black it's still a lie
Every city that you fly
I sit home and wonder why
While you're out there getting high
One more night for me to cry
Can you look me in the eye?
Cross your heart and hope to die
Hope to die (x4)

I can't tell you how many times I've cried
Over you, my baby..
I've had one too many sleepless nights
Over you, my baby..

I can't tell you how many times I've cried
Over you, my baby..
I've had one too many sleepless nights
Over you, my baby..
