Don’t Make Me Lie To You

pull in the driveway with the engine off
don’t want to wake you so i’m treading soft
but the lock on the door has never seemed so loud
& every shadow appears to frown
i look in the mirror as i brush my teeth
any fool could see what’s underneath
this face i wear for you

take off my clothes & i crawl into bed
lie down beside you & you turn your head
those eyes i loved i can no longer see
i can’t answer what they ask of me
you didn’t know me, that’s for real
there is always a way out of a deal
any old excuse will do

don’t make me tell you where i’ve been
turn around, go back to sleep again
don’t make me tell you things you know are untrue
don’t make me lie to you

well i’m alone & i’m feeling scared
i can’t sleep i get out of bed
turn the tv on with the volume low
& think of her in the flickering glow
i see her smile when i close my eyes
feel so lonesome & i wonder why
i can’t confess to you

don’t make me tell you where i’ve been
turn around, go back to sleep again
don’t make me tell you things you know are untrue
don’t make me lie to you
