Lyin Eyes

The Eagles

City girls just seem to find out early, how to open doors with just a smile
A rich old man and she won’t have to worry. She’ll dress up all in lace and go in style

Late at night the big old house gets lonely. I guess every form of refuse has its price
And it breaks her heart to think her love is only given to a man with hands as cold as ice

So she tells him she must go out for the evening to comfort an old friend who’s feeling down
But he knows where she’s going as she’s leaving. She is headed for the cheat’in side of town

   You can’t hide your lyin eyes, and your smile is thin disguise
   I thought by now you’d realize, there ain’t no way to hide your lyin eyes

On the other side of town a boy is waiting, with firey eyes and dreams no one can could steal
She drives on through the night anticipating, cuz he makes her feel the way she used to feel

She rushes to his arms they fall together. She whispers that it’s only for a while
She swears that soon she’ll be coming back forever. She pulls away and leaves him with a smile

Repeat Chorus

She gets up and pours herself a strong one, and stares out at the stars up in the sky
Another night, it’s gonna be a long one. She draws the shade and hangs her head to cry

She wonders how it ever got this crazy. She thinks about a boy she knew in school
Did she get tired or did she just get lazy. She’s so far gone she feels just like a fool

My oh my you sure know how to arrange things. You set it up, so well, so carefully
Ain’t it funny how your new life didn’t changed things. You’re still the same old girl you used to be

Repeat Chorus

There ain’t no way to hide your lyin eyes
Honey you can’t hide your lyin eyes
