Aimee Mann Living A Lie Lyrics

Last updated: 09/28/2012 04:25:27 AM

You can see yourself in the side mirror
Tossing your hair
If no one’s there
Then why do you care?
Though I let you think there was no witness to
All of your crimes
I knew what you were
The climber who climbs

[Chorus]
I’m living a lie,
You’re living it too
Cause I live it with you
I’m living a lie, a lie I can’t tell
So wait for the crack in the shell

No one bears a grudge like a boy genius
Just past his prime
Building his cage, a bar at a time
For every open arm theres a cold shoulder
Waiting to turn
People to blame
Bridges to burn

[Chorus]
I’m living a lie,
You’re living it too
Cause I live it with you
I’m living a lie, a lie I can’t tell
So wait for the crack in the shell

A girl comes around at a time when you're ground
Is as shaky as leaves on a tree
Creating for you a persona or two
Or an out and out mythology
Now there’s too many cooks
But you like how it looks
When they’re bowing and calling you boss
But the powers that were, were invested in her
And now any means taking a loss

[Chorus]
I’m living a lie,
You’re living it too
Cause I live it with you
I’m living a lie, a lie can tell
So wait for the crack in the shell
Yeah wait for the crack in the shell.
