Lying Lips- Earnest Eyes

Your lips...lie
Your words...lie
Your hands...lie
Your actions...lie
The lie: I am nothing to you

Your eyes...
Your earnest eyes
Cannot...will not...lie
They speak the truth
With every look
In their depths...a message
The truth: You long with me to...lie

Eileen Manassian Ghali

One of my favorite songs ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNZV2C5bpmA

    Good one, was it Beyonce or Jennifer Lopez that sang Your Lips don't Lie?

    Are you sure its lips don't lie or hips don't lie? If its the hips don't lie then it is none other than Shakira who is part Lebanese, by the way...and day belly dance like mad!!! :)

    Oh sweetie...you probably already know it. Snow Patrol...chasing cars! "If I lay here, if I just lay here....will you lie with me and just forget the world....Forget what we're told, before we get too old, show me a garden that's bursting into life." If those words are not heavenly....I don't know what is! HUGS!!!!
