LIES/LYING – for SONG LYRIC SUNDAY

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 8/6/17

***

The theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday is lies/lying.

Thanks, Helen, for another interesting prompt! 🙂

***

This first song, “Lying Eyes”, is by one of my favorite bands, The Eagles. I like all their songs, and this one fit right in with the challenge prompt.

The second song, by Three Dog Night, is about lying, too. It’s called, “Liar”. We saw Three Dog Night in concert a long time ago, in Oklahoma City. It was a great performance. Here’s my actual 45 record of the song.

“Lyin’ Eyes”, by the Eagles, was released in 1975, from the album, “One of These Nights”. It was written by Don Henley and Glenn Frey. It’s on the Asylum label.

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 feelin’ down
But he knows where she’s goin’ as she’s leavin’
She is headed for the cheatin’ side of town

You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you’d realize
There ain’t no way to hide your lyin 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 that it’s only for awhile
She swears that soon she’ll be comin’ back forever
She pulls away and leaves him with a smile

You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you’d realize
There ain’t now way to hide your lyin’ eyes

And stares out 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 it 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.

You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you’d realize
There ain’t no way to hide your lyin’ eyes
There ain’t no way to hide your lyin’ eyes
Honey, you can’t hide your lyin’ eyes

“Liar”, by Three Dog Night, was released from the album, “Naturally”, in 1971, on the Dunhill label. It was written by Russ Ballard.

I won’t ever leave while you want me to stay
Nothing you could do that would turn me away
Hanging on every word
Believing the things I heard
Being a fool
You’ve taken my life, so take my soul
That’s what you said and I believed it all
I want to be with you as long
As you want me to
I won’t move away
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Liar, liar, liar

May I see no light
May I see no day
If I ever leave while you want me to stay
You can believe in me
I won’t be leaving
I won’t let you go
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Liar, liar, liar

    • Thanks, Helen! I can’t resist posting an Eagles song when I have a chance, as I listen to their CD all the time. I saw someone else chose this song, too! 🙂 Yes, the live performance of Three Dog Night was memorable to say the least! We sure enjoyed it. I think it was in the early 70s.
