Blue Rodeo – Nice Try lyrics

Well the best defense
Is the bright lights
Underneath which
You commit that dark crime
Look, I was there
I watched it all go down
And I still can't believe my eyes
Nice try, it's so wild
Nice try, it's so wild

It's like a car burning
On the side of the road
Well, someone got torched
For not doing what they're told
It's like a plaid vacation
When they change your name
It's like yesterday's news
Is the same again and again and again
It's so wild
Again and again
It's so wild

~ Solo ~

So when you dish the dirt
You might as well dish the worst
'Cause no one expects you
To tell the truth
And when they turn around
They think that something must be wrong
'Cause no one
Could make up a story so far gone
It's so wild
So far gone
It's so wild

Fact or fiction, all parties deny
Any involvement
At the scene of the crime
They look you cold straight in the eye
And say, "Man
You got the wrong guy, but nice try"
It's so wild
Nice try
It's so wild
