I'm a sentence spinner An adjective machine Spitting out syllables Rarely say what I mean All my shotgun statements Are meant to confuse Throw the dogs off the scent That can lead to the truth And expose me But you see...
She's calling my bluff She's taking me serious Maybe I am too She's playing too rough She's taking me serious Maybe it's the truth
I've always made an effort To put things in the way Try to guard my heart With a cynical gaze But she's been staring right back Spending my time like cash She's been throwing down challenges I might have met my match
You can lie so long That you take it as truth Then someone comes along And reveals it to you Can no longer hide Behind a wink and a nod Now the gig is up Got to lay down all your cards
They say in every lie There's a clue to the truth And she's been collecting evidence That she's gonna use She's been dusting for heart-prints And recording my face When I open up my mouth I'm only helping her case
Behind the Song: "We are attracted to some people because they are safe and we are attracted to others because they are real. The safe ones don't challenge our facade and believe we are all the perfect things we make ourselves up to be. But the real ones hold up a mirror reflecting our true selves back to us. Sometimes, it's a pretty ugly image. My beautiful wife Melanie is the 'realist' person I know. She was the first person to challenge my claims (with a precocious smile and a flirtatious wink). Letting someone in your dressing room to see the real you without make up and wardrobe is a scary thing. But you will never know yourself or true love until you do it..." - Eric Champion
