"Liar" as written by and Freddie / Mercury....
I have sinned dear father, father I have sinned
Try and help me father
Won't you let me in ? Liar
Oh nobody believes me - Liar
Ooh, why don't you leave me alone ?
Sire I have stolen, stolen many times
Raised my voice in anger
When I know I never should
Liar - oh everybody deceives me
Liar - ooh, why don't you leave me alone ?

Liar - I have sailed the seas
Liar - from Mars to Mercury
Liar - I have drunk the wine
Liar - Time after time
Liar - You're lying to me
Liar - You're lying to me
Father please forgive me
You know you'll never leave me
Please will you direct me in the right way
Liar liar liar liar
Liar that's what they keep calling me
Liar liar liar

Ooh, let me go

Listen, are you gonna listen ?
Mama I'm gonna be your slave
All day long
Mama I'm gonna try behave
All day long
Mama I'm gonna be your slave
All day long
I'm gonna serve you till your dying day
All day long
I'm gonna keep you till your dying day
All day long
I'm gonna kneel down by your side and pray
All day long and pray
All day long and pray
All day long and pray
All day long, wow, all day long, wow
All day long, all day long, all day long
Yes, all day long, all day long, all day long, all day long, yeah
All day long, we have lift off, ow

All day long, all day long, all day long
Liar liar they never ever let you win
Liar liar everything you do is sin
Liar nobody believes you
Liar they bring you down before you begin
Ooh, now let me tell you this
So now you know you could be dead before they let you, aah

    General CommentI totally disagree. The song isnt supposto be centerd so much on lying as it is on sinning in general, "liar" is just the accusitory name used. Look at the lyics. Freddie comes tentatively and remosfally to confess to sins in his heart to a "father", repenting and asking for forgiveness and help and to be "let in". but in turn to this, hes met with accusation (LIAR) and condenation, no matter how much he beggs "father, please forgive me, I know youll never leave me, please will you direct me, in the right way?" its really a song about Freddie feeling overwheledly guilty and then feeling, at the same time, unforgiable and unnacceplable by God or some sort of higher power. Its obvious, and its so, so sad.

    General Commenta graceful song about the importance of your relatives, that you will quit because you are not sinless but not a liar.

    General CommentBasically a 'boy who cried wolf' type tale. They have lied so many times, no one is willing to listen. The person accepts that they have done wrong, but they also long to tell someone something without it being dismissed immediately as untrue.

    General Commenti agree. i think this is my favorite guitar works in this here song.
    Liar I have sailed the seas
    Liar from Mars to Mercury
    Liar I have drunk the wine
    Liar time after time
    Liar you're lying to me
    Liar you're lying to me

    its his tales he told so many times, and noone believes him

    Mama I'm gonna try behave
    All day long
    Mama I'm gonna be your slave
    All day long
    I'm gonna serve you till your dying day
    All day long
    I'm gonna keep you till your dying day
    All day long
    I'm gonna kneel down by your side and pray
    he begs for forgivness so that he would never lie again. the ending shows the moral of the story.

    General CommentThis is like having two different voices in you're head. I think the concept is Freddie having conflicting thoughts, he is wanting to confess his sins, but the shouting voice is saying "Liar" almost like a voice in his head accusing him. I think it is this voice that wins out over his own confession and asking for help, as you can see from the end of the song. It is a really aazing concept, I think it is supposed to be a similar concept to Eminem's "Guilty Conscience," with the two voices inside you arguing.

    General CommentDid you know that the intro to Liar was played at Wembley '86? It's played between Seven Seas of Rhye and Tear It Up, or as an intro to Tear It Up I'm not to sure.
