A Lie Is So Expensive ©2007 Doug Spears You know a lie is so expensive, When the truth is so damned cheap, You’ve been working yourself so hard, To get yourself in too deep, Now you’re tongue’s on fire, But it’s cold too the touch, Why do you keep on telling these lies, When they hurt you so much. Lie, lie, lie, Lord you know it’s sin, But these lies keep rolling off your tongue, Just like a rattlesnake sheds it’s skin, And it’ll make you moan, Like a warm dream of desire, Nut when you wake up you’re gonna find, That warmth is just your soul on fire. Oh you can lie to yourself ‘til you think its true But when they find out you’re a lie you’re gonna be through, Then what will you do. Because you’re lying in the morning, Straight on through to the afternoon, You keep lying in the evening, And the morning comes around too soon, And in the dead of the night, While you’re lying all alone, You’re gonna find the truth is skin deep, But a lie will cut you straight to the bone. Oh you can lie to yourself ‘til you think its true But when they find out you’re a lie you’re gonna be through, Then what will you do. You know a lie is so expensive, When the truth is so damned cheap, You’ve been working yourself so hard, To get yourself in too deep, Now you’re tongue’s on fire, But it’s cold too the touch, Why do you keep on telling these lies, When they hurt you so much.
