Dressing my voice up on the phone
Underneath the envy rotting my bones
I'd do anything to get you alone, if just for awhile

Blame it on the way that I talk
Blame it on the way that I look
You can blame it on the stuff that I drank
And the pills that I took

Tell me a lie, if it's true
Have you done all the things I never wanted you to?

Baby is he all that you dreamed?
I think about you every night that I go to sleep
You're laying there wrapped up in his arms
How we used to be

Are you seriously falling in love?
Or do you do it just to get back at me?
I deserve to take it I guess, I just wish we could be.

Tell me a lie, if it's true
Have you done all the things I never wanted to do?

I know you hate it when I play you my songs
There ain't a one of 'em when you weren't involved
I bet you wish I'd take the issue at hand and just get it solved

Trippin' myself up on my words
Writin' checks that I couldn't cash
I rip 'em up and throw 'em away
Then I dig 'em out of the trash

You won't believe me if I promise again
I'm telling you that I can change
I'd scream it at the top of my lungs
But it's out of my range

Tell me a lie if it's true
Have you done all the things I never wanted you to?
Tell me a lie if it's true
Have you done all the things I never wanted you to?

    General Commenti really like his voice. his singing is so clear and pure and his emotions are thrown out in his lyrics not holding anything back. he has been left; maybe he deserved it, but he still misses her and is thinking about her and the new guy she's with. there may be a hint that she still likes him though.

    "are you seriously falling in love?
    or do you do it just to get back at me?"

    anyway - his voice is amazing. he is probably my new fav!
