It's the flash of your eyes in the darkness
It's the sign that escapes from your lips
And though you run from the tug of emotion
You're betrayed by the gestures of your fingertips
And though you think you guard
Your house of cards so well

They call it the tell
Baby I can tell by the way that you move
They call it the tell
You give yourself away when
You try to be smooth
They call it the tell
You hide your madness
So innocently
They call it the tell
You can fool them all
But you're not fooling me

It's the words that you say in a whisper
It's the blush of your skin running deep
It's your double entendres, each slip of the tongue
That's letting me know that it's treason you speak
When you protest too much
The truth rings like a bell

(x2) They call it the tell
Baby I can tell by the way that you move
They call it the tell
You give yourself away when
You try to be smooth
They call it the tell
You hide your madness
So innocently
They call it the tell
You can fool them all
But you're not fooling me

It's the flash of your eyes in the darkness
It's the sign that escapes from your lips
It's the words that you say in a whisper
It's the blush of your skin running deep
They call it the tell
