  1. Livin' a Lie

From the recording The Other Side

Lyrics

Verse 1
When I first saw your smile I knew that I’d love you forever
We walked down the aisle dreaming of being together
We talked about houses and kids two or three
A dog and two cats, a real family
When you said forever, I thought it’d be longer than this
 
Verse 2
Well how ‘bout the kids
I guess I’m the one who should keep them
When they say where’s Dad
I’m not really sure what I’ll tell them
You’ll have weekends and Christmas and days in between
Oh my heart can’t handle this shattering dream
As your packing your bags tell me it’s really not true
 
Chorus:
You’ve been talking a dream but livin’ a lie
There aren’t too many things on which you can rely except
Taxes and heartache and saying goodbye in the end
When it all boils down to what’s two and two
It just don’t add up when I’m talkin’ to you
If we’re gonna break up I hope we’ll do it as friends
 
Instrumental:
 
Bridge
Now we’re breaking our home up and our egos too
Oh I’ll never love someone as deeply as you
This pain in my heart will never ever subside
 
Chorus:
You’ve been talking a dream but livin’ a lie
There aren’t too many things on which you can rely except
Taxes and heartache and saying goodbye in the end
When it all boils down to what’s two and two
It just don’t add up when I’m talkin’ to you
If we’re gonna break up I hope we can do it
Oh please let us do it, Lord how can we do it
If we’re gonna break up
We’ll never make it as friends
