Lying Eyes
Lyrics & song by: The Eagles

City girls just seem to find out early How to open doors with just a smile A rich old man, and she won't have to worry She'll dress up all in lace and go in style Late at night a big old house gets lonely I guess every form of refuge has its price And it breaks her heart to think her love is only Given to a man with hands as cold as ice So she tells him she must go out for the evening To comfort an old friend who's feeling down But he knows where she's going as she's leaving She is headed for the cheating side of town ** You can't hide your lying eyes And your smile's a thin disguise I thought by now you'd realize There ain't no ways to hide your lying eyes On the other side of town a boy is waiting With fiery eyes and dreams no one could steal She drives on through the night anticipating 'Cause he makes her feel the way she used to feel She rushes to his arms, they fall together She whispers, "It's only for a while" She swears that soon she's coming back forever She goes away and leaves him with a smile (Repeat **) She gets up and pour herself a strong one And stares at the stars up in the sky Another night, it's gonna be a long one She draws the shade and hangs her head to cry She wonders how I ever got this crazy She thinks about a boy she knew in school Did she get tired or did she just get lazy? She's so far gone she feels just like a fool My oh my, you sure know how to arrange things You set it up so well, so carefully Ain't it funny how your new life didn't change things You're still the same old girl you used to be (Repeat **) Ain't no way to hide your lying eyes Honey, you can't hide your lying eyes.
