Baby I can't stand to hear you cry
But baby, I can't wait to say goodbye
Baby, it's just not gonna work this time
You can't win every fight
You can't win every fight

Baby I feel terrible and I know that I should
Said I'd never give you hell
But I never, ever gave you all my good
Looked in your eyes and saw it's not what we deserve
It's not what we deserve

Now I promised,
To never ever let you hurt inside but

Sometimes people lie
Sometimes people lie

Wipe your eyes and crawl back in that shell
The one I wrenched you out of
When I realized your heart is a well
And I drank, and I drank
But I didn't know how to thank you

So I drank, and I drank
But I didn't know how to thank you
So I promised you gold, myrrh, and frankincense
Promised eternal love and joy when you need it
To get by

But sometimes people lie...

Time and time and time again
I made you cry
Cry yourself dry
But sometimes people lie

Wipe those, wipe those
Wipe those eyes
Sometimes people lie
