"I Believe She's Lying" as written by Jon Brion and Aimee Mann....
Although she's none the wiser
Although we've barely met
I can recognize her
From the treatment that I get

So it's my duty to advise her
If she breaks the rules
I've said I'll quit though
I'll admit that hasn't happened yet

I believe she's lying

I trust her to undermine my faith in her, in time
I have every confidence that she'll dismantle mine
Given time

As sure as she is sitting here
She's sure that she's awake
And as soon as we're committing
We're admitting our mistake

So of course it's only fitting
That the course we're going to take
Is drawn and whereupon I'm slamming on the brakes

I believe she's lying

I trust her to undermine my faith in her, in time
I have every confidence that she'll dismantle mine
Given time
It's a given, given time

The power of suggestion
The element of chance
And the subject now in question
Is the same old song and dance

And the time that we invest in
Setting traps out in advance
So we could spend the weekend staring in a trance

I believe she's lying
I trust her to undermine my faith in her, in time
I have every confidence that she'll dismantle mine
Given time
It's a given, given time
It's a given, given time

    General CommentDon't let this cheery tune fool you; this is a very bitter song. At least it is in my opinion. Basically, he is judging the relationship as a failure before it even starts because he thinks she falls into some sort of dating pattern he himself is stuck in. By the time he realizes what is happening, it's too late, the game has already begun. Though really, isn't he just giving her an unfair advantage? He assumes just because she is like someone or reminds him of people from the past, she will lie to him, treat him the same way they did. I feel sad for the people in this song to be quite honest. Not sure if it is autobiographical, but if it is, that's a shame.
