cheat ‘n’ lie lyrics – uriah heep

well, it seems to me that i’ve been cheated
and it would appear that i’ve been lied to
all the promises that you repeated
were never destined to come true

when i stop to think how i once trusted you
it’s harder still to bear this doubt
i’m an innocent victim of heartbreaking circ*mstance
and i still can’t get it figured out

’cause all you did was cheat and lie
now you’re gone, made me cry
when my heart is heavy
and i just can’t get it straight

just the way you made me feel
a wound that only time can heal
won’t you take a little time
and show me my mistake

well, listen
well, it seems to me that i’ve been cheated
and it would appear that i’ve been lied to
all the promises that you repeated
were never destined to come true

’cause all you did was cheat and lie
now you’re gone, made me cry
when my heart is heavy
and i just can’t get it straight

just the way you made me feel
a wound that only time can heal
won’t you take a little time
you know you gotta show me my mistake, baby

’cause all you did was cheat and lie
now you’re gone, made me cry
when my heart is heavy
and i just can’t get it straight, yeah

just the way you made me feel
a wound that only time can heal
won’t you take a little time
you know you gotta show me my mistake, oh
