"Reason To Lie" as written by and Michael A Daly Ryan Adams....
I get so tired of missing you
I get so tired of wanting to
Compare the things that are easy to do
Like the reasons you lie to me
The reasons I lie to you

And I wish it was some kinda explosive device
That only you could diffuse
Reasons you lie to me
Reasons I lie to you

Wanna live in a beautiful house
Somewhere up in the hills
With some people making fun of us
You refer to us as your two kids
Then it wouldn't be somebody else
That you'd grow accustomed to
Reasons to lie to me
Is a reason to lie to you

I get so tired of missing you
I get so tired of wanting to
Compare the things that are easy to do
Like the reasons you lie to me
Reasons I lie to you

    General Comment"then it wouldn't be somebody else that you'd grow accustomed to" - one of the saddest, most understated lyrics I've ever come across. The concept of someone you're in love with growing 'accustomed' to someone else kills me.

    General CommentWhat's funny is that I was listening to this tonight and decided to come here just to see if anyone had commented on the "then it wouldn't be somebody else that you'd grow accustomed to" line...I'm glad somebody did. That line is so amazing. If anybody's reading this and wondering why, it's all about how it fits in the song. Listen to it immediately! So freakin lonely, such a simple sentiment that says so much about dissolving relationships.

    I think some of these lyrics might be a bit off though!

    General CommentWhen i heard the above line mentioned i always heard " then i wouldnt be somebody else that you'd grown accustomed to" and i thought that if it were this way then it was quite possibly also one of the saddest lines i had ever heard also. its sad when you are so accustomed to your partner that they no longer sparkle and amuse you the way they once did or how a stranger or new person can. its a sad feeling also to know you cant do that for the person anymore.
