Elton John - "The Camera Never Lies Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

I see you tempt the night
You can tell me you were home
I see you take a bite

But the camera never lies
You walk out in disguise
To pull the wool over my eyes
You play me for a fool
And you can count on being safe as houses
To believe your alibis

The camera never lies
Underestimate my eyes

But you can't argue with the image
Safe enough for you to hide
There's no distance put between us
The camera never lies
I'm watching all of your secrets

I recommend first prize
For acting so surprised
For acting like you love me
The camera never lies
How good you look on film

I'll take my wounded pride
I'll take it on the chin

Your profile fills the frame
Replace the face of trust
The shutter falls each time you meet him
Smoke screens and sweet deceiving
A negative becomes my plus
