"She Lies To Me" as written by Brad Merritt, Phil Comparelli, Neil Osborne and Matt Johnson....
She lies to me
Lies to me
I don't want to know
What she really sees

What is wrong with me?
I'm not supposed to be
Happy all the time
But I'm willing to bet
It doesn't matter yet
As long as she doesn't mind

Telling lies to me
Lies to me
I don't want to know
What she really sees

Maybe it's not fair to her
To believe in what she says
That's the way it goes, sometimes
And it can also go the other way

I wasn't wide awake
When she said to me
"Buddy, you're alright"
But I think she knows
And I know it shows
That I'm confused all the time

She lies to me
Lies to me
I don't want to know
What she really sees

Lies to me
Lies to me
I don't want to know
What she really sees

Maybe it's not fair to her
To believe in what she says
That's the way it goes, sometimes
And it can also go the other way

I wasn't wide awake
When she said to me
"Buddy, you're alright"
But I think she knows
And I know it shows
That I'm confused all the time

She lies to me
Lies to me
I don't want to know
What she really sees

She lies to me
Lies to me
I don't want to know
What she really sees

Lies to me
Lies to me
I don't want to know
What she really sees

    General CommentThis song is pretty straightforward--a guy's girlfriend (or perhaps just a regular, if female, friend) is always complimenting him, and he's convinced that she's just trying to make him feel good but isn't sincere in any of it.

    General CommentLike most guys, he feels completely unworthy of her love, but of course her hanging around still strokes his ego, so he'll just let her go on lying to him, no matter how much he knows (believes) it is hurting her. Completely self-centred, stereotypical male angst, with the beautifully understated humour typical in 54-40's lyrics. (e.g. "And it can also go the other way.")

    I've often wondered if the juxtaposition of the lines "That I'm confused all the time" and "She lies to me" are intended to be two separate thoughts or two clauses in a single sentence. Is he confused all the time, or only when she lies to him?
