lie to me lyrics – sara bareilles

lie to me

[verse 1:]
tell the truth, no lies
i can take it
burned your breath, just this once
run your mouth
i bet i can catch it
you sound just like a judas

[chorus:]
and if there’s anything i learned
that would keep me standing
if i take you and your word
then i’m empty handed
a tongue like yours should be burned and branded
so i can see you lie to me
i wish the air would color red
when you breath it in
and so i could have seen it coming
look in my eyes when you say you love me
so i can see you lie to me

[verse 2:]
lost be found
i’m a bloodhound born for seeking
poor prey, you must be tired
stood your ground
but your act drives a beating
and now it’s all on fire

[chorus:]
if there’s anything i learned
that would keep me standing
if i take you at your word
then i’m empty handed
a tongue like yours should be burned and branded
so i can see you lie to me
i wish the air would color red
when you breath it in
and so i could have seen it coming
look in my eyes when you say you love me
so i can see you lie to me
