no matter what words i say she just thinks it's my best line she'll look at me that way and say yeah she'll say boys lie thanks guys you've really done it for me this time now i'm watching her walk away i'm not like all the others i get lost inside your eyes and it comes as no surprise that still she won't believe me she's heard it a hundred times she'll just look at me and say boys lie i'm paying for her past because the last guy didn't last i'm stuck in the middle of this riddle so cruel there's no point to argue 'cause you know as well as i do that it's true crazy that we will never be happy so much time invested you and me and all this wishful thinking so much time you wasted i get lost in your eyes while you just look for the lies

    General CommentI like this song alot, and no ones commented on it which is weird. I kinda know what the girl in the song must be thinking, when ya just heard to much bullshit and ya cant trust any guys. Brandtson rock!! :D

    General Commenti'll comment. it's a really good song. a song i would place in the ranks on my prairie cruising collection. i love the bass in this song too. but the lyrics are also gold and actually somehwta powerful and heartfelt. this is definately about the resentment this guy feels towards the way guys treated his love interest in the past... and the way she is because of it. quite beautiful.... and the lead singer has a pretty nice voice.

    General Commentgood song..... and as a guy i can relate to girls thinking we just lie all the time, and us paying for the asshole ex boyfriends mistakes. Sometimes some guys can actually be sincere =)
