Elton John - "Lies" lyrics

Some lie about who they love Some lie about the truth Some lie to save their lives Some lie about their youth

Some lie about age and beauty The conquest of sex Most lie about the night before A woman lies for a party dress

I've lied for a stolen moment I've lied for one more clue I've lied about most everything But I never lied to you

And we lie, lie, lie on a streetcar named desire Oh we lie, lie, lie for that sweet bird of youth I could be great like Tennessee Williams If I could only hear something that sounds like the truth

Some lie in the face of death Some lie about their fame Some kneel and lie to God Some lie about their name

Some lie in words and speeches With every living breath The young lie with their guitars The old lie for a little respect

I've lied to lie with danger I've lied for a drug or two I've lied about most everything But I never lied to you

I've lied for a stolen moment I've lied for one more clue I've lied about most everything But I never lied to you.
