Steppenwolf – Someone Told A Lie lyrics

Words and music by John Kay and Bobby Cochran

Someone told me about your...
Somebody gossiped about my...
But nobody warned us about those...
Someone told a lie
Now we don't trust each other's faces
And I don't know what to think about you
'Cause we can't stand in each other's places
And I can't trade with you

We've had times together where the sparks would fly
But in stormy weather we stood side by side
Now we're cold and distant
Watching love roll by
Just when truth was needed
Someone told a lie

Some folks say I'm a sinner
Some people claim I'm a saint
But nobody knows who's the winner
The truth was told too late
Now I was raised to believe that you're different
And I was told not to play with your kind
Does anyone know why
They were so hell bent on poisoning our minds?

Now we're cold and distant
Watching love go by
Just when truth was needed
Someone told a lie
But I'll do what I have to
You do what you can
Just to keep on searching for the pride of man

All those tears we wasted wondering why
All those years were wasted fighting lies
But I'll do what I have to
You'll do what you can
Just to keep on searching for the pride of man
