You promise the sun, the sky and the moon
You promise to be there for me very soon
You said I was your only lover
You said after me there is no other
And days I waited to feel for tender touch
Through my kitchen window with my keen eyes as I watch
Across the meadows and woods through the valley
You are my best friend, alter ego and alley

Tall, young man with the dark and curly hair
And his arms where strong like a big brown bear
Told me what I wanted to hear
As we sat on papa’s little chair
The fine words burns me up like the fire 
I never knew he was such a liar
But you never match your words with your action
I was sweep away by the winds of passion
Said you will take me to the banquet to see the queen
You said the girl next to you was your twin
And any time I ask where you have been
You said you went to school to see the dean

Lies are big and lies are small
Some lies are short and some lies are tall
Lies are like mirages that a traveler sees
Lies I all you want them to be
Some lies are deadly 
And you can lose good friends
Even lovers who vowed to stay to the very end
Some lies are ridiculous as you can see
Some lies are like books of mystery
