  • Some lie about who they love
    Some lie about the truth
    Some lie to save their lives
    Some lie about their youth

    Some lie about age and beauty
    The conquest of sex
    Most lie about the night before
    A woman lies for a party dress

    I've lied for a stolen moment
    I've lied for one more clue
    I've lied about most everything
    But I never lied to you

    And we lie, lie, lie on a streetcar named desire
    Oh we lie, lie, lie for that sweet bird of youth
    I could be great like Tennessee Williams
    If I could only hear something that sounds like the truth

    Some lie in the face of death
    Some lie about their fame
    Some kneel and lie to God
    Some lie about their name

    Some lie in words and speeches
    With every living breath
    The young lie with their guitars
    The old lie for a little respect

    I've lied to lie with danger
    I've lied for a drug or two
    I've lied about most everything
    But I never lied to you

    And we lie, lie, lie on a streetcar named desire
    Oh we lie, lie, lie for that sweet bird of youth
    I could be great like Tennessee Williams
    If I could only hear something that sounds like the truth

    I've lied for a stolen moment
    I've lied for one more clue
    I've lied about most everything
    But I never lied to you

    And we lie, lie, lie on a streetcar named desire
    Oh we lie, lie, lie for that sweet bird of youth
    I could be great like Tennessee Williams
    If I could only hear something that sounds like the truth
