I buried my heart
in a hole in the ground
with the lights and the roses
and the cowards downtown

They threw me a party
there was no one around
they try to call my girl
but she could not be found

I buried my guilt
in a pit in the sound
with the rust and the vultures
and the trash downtown

So don't step to me, kid
you'll never be found
cause while you were sleeping
I took over your town

(chorus/hook)
When I see a man, I see a liar 2x
you're the apple of my eye, of my eye, of my eye
you're the apple of my eye, of my eye
I want ya

I fell for a girl with
a port-wine stain
I knew her initials
but never her name

I tried and I tried
and I was never the same
so no longer for love
and I'm forever changed

(chorus)
When I see a man, I see a liar 2x
you're the apple of my eye, of my eye, of my eye
you're the apple of my eye, of my eye
I want ya
give up my money, give up my name, take it away
I give it away, I give it away, I give it
when I see a man, I see a liar 2x


When I see a man, I see a liar 2x
you're the apple of my eye, of my eye, of my eye
you're the apple of my eye, of my eye
I want ya
give up my money, give up my name, take it away
I give it away, I give it away, I give it
I'm a sycophantic animal, I'm a sycophant... no, no
I'm a sycophantic, all and all
break through the chain, I break through the chain, I'll break it
I give it away, I give it away, I give it
when I see a man, I see a liar 2x
you're the apple of my eye, of my eye, of my eye
you're the apple of my eye, of my eye,
I want ya
give up my money, give up my name, take it away
I give it away, I give it away, I give it
see you again, I see you again, I see ya
give it away, I give it away, I give it
when I feel low, when I feel low, I feel it

When I see a man, I see a liar 2x
you're the apple of my eye, of my eye, of my eye
you're the apple of my eye, of my eye,
I want ya
