"You Told a Lie" as written by and Tracyanne Campbell....
If you were a season, you would be in bloom
I wish I had good reason to see you soon
No need to convince me that you were a catch
I bought my ticket and so at last

Who was it that said that love conquers all?
Oh he was a fool cause it doesn't add up
Should I believe you told a lie?
On the way to my heart and on the way back

Are my eyes the coldest blue?
You said once this was true
If it is I don't know what I'll do
Cause I'm stuck with them
And they're stuck on you

Was I quite bad that nothing could never challenged anyone
Or was I a lazy lazy snake
Do you want me to be a gentle diplomat
Oh you can beg and you can plead

Are my eyes the coldest blue?
You said once this was true
If it is I don't know what I'll do
Cause I'm stuck with them
And they're stuck on you

Are my eyes the coldest blue?
You said once this was true
If it is I don't know what I'll do

Cause I'm stuck with them
And you're stuck on you
Cause I'm stuck with them
And they're stuck on you

I'm stuck with him
And they're stuck on you
I'm stuck with them
And they're stuck on you

    General CommentI might be wrong, but it sounds like she plays with the words of the last few lines:

    What I heard was:

    Are my eyes the coldest blue?
    You said once that this was true
    And if it is I don't know what I'll do

    Cause I'm stuck with them
    And you're stuck on you
    Cause I'm stuck with them
    And they're stuck on you

    I'm stuck with them
    And they're stuck on you
    I'm stuck with him
    And they're stuck on you

    That's what I got at least.

    General Comment@ ThatGuyEd:
    I agree. I've listened to the song a number of times before looking up the lyrics and thought the same thing.

    General Comment"I bought my ticket and soul at last?"
    "...song at last?"

    I'm at least pretty sure it isn't merely "so."

    General CommentI think it's ``quiet bit of nothing'', not ``quite little nothing''.

    General CommentLyrics transcribed from the booklet included with the "My Maudlin Career" CD. Parts in brackets were erronesouly left out of the booklet lyrics despite obviously being a part of the song. Parts enclosed in parentheses are in the booklet lyrics despite not actually being in the recorded version. Sans the bracketed and parenthetical parts, everything else from the booklet checks out to my ears.

    If you were a season you would be in bloom
    I wish I had good reason to see you soon
    (There's) No need to convince me that you're a catch
    I bought my ticket I'm sold at last

    Who was it that said that love conquers all?
    He was a fool 'cause it doesn't at all
    Should I believe you told a lie?
    On the way to my heart and on the way back

    Are my eyes the coldest blue?
    You said once this was true
    If it is I don't know what I'll do
    'Cause I'm stuck with them
    And they're stuck on you

    Was I a quiet little nothing
    Who never challenged anyone?
    [Or] was I a lazy lazy snake?
    Do you want me to be a gentle diplomat?
    [Or] you can beg and you can plead

    Are my eyes the coldest blue?
    You said once this was true
    [And] if it is I don't know what I'll do
    'Cause I'm stuck with them
    And they're stuck on you

    [Are my eyes the coldest blue?
    You said once this was true
    And if it is I don't know what I'll do
    'Cause I'm stuck with them
    And they're stuck on you
    'Cause I'm stuck with them
    And they're stuck on you

    I'm stuck with them
    When they're stuck on you
    I'm stuck with them
    And they're stuck on you]

    General CommentA corrected version of the last two verses, which are excluded from the booklet.

    [Are my eyes the coldest blue?
    You said once this was true
    If it is I don't know what I'll do
    'Cause I'm stuck with them
    And you're stuck on you
    'Cause I'm stuck with them
    And they're stuck on you

    I'm stuck with them
    When they're stuck on you
    I'm stuck with them
    And they're stuck on you]
