on the lie lyrics – goo goo dolls

he burnt down the house one night
he had a loaded six pack gun
he said that jesus christ was just like a cop
you know you never know when they’ll come

she said, “every day above ground
was another dream come true”
he said, “i’d hang and swap cliches all night
but i’m not in love with you”

and i never got serious
till everything went black
and i ain’t so curious
that i’m ever going back

on the lie
on the lie

on the lie
on the lie

he said, “man, you want to be elvis”
i said, “i ain’t dying face down”
he said, “you’ve got to die facing up in the world
’cause there’s too many holes around”

he asked what was wrong with me
he said i looked like a hollywood girl
i said that hollywood can fall into the ocean, man
’cause it’s the ugliest place in the whole wide world

and i never got serious
till everything went black
and i ain’t so curious
that i’m ever going back

on the lie
on the lie

on the lie
on the lie

on the lie, he was
on the lie

on the lie, she was
on the lie

on the lie, he was
on the lie

it’s always a stinkin’ lie
