She's Lying Lyrics

by Lee Greenwood

As her key unlocks the front door
I reach out to find a light so she can see
Then I wait to hear her story
Why she stayed out late tonight and she tells me
That it really wasn't her fault
If she'd had her ways she'd have been home hours ago
That's when her tears start to flowin'
And she swears it's true but in my heart I know

When I'm sure that I've convinced her
That I believe her story then I turn away
I don't let her know she's hurt me
'Cause the words stick in my throat I wanna say
And I'm so afraid I'll lose her
If she knew I knew the truth she just might go
So I listen to her story
Try to hide the hurt, but in my heart I know

She's lying, there's not a word of truth in her crying
And still I've got this awful urge
To take her in my arms and hold her tight
God, I know she's lying, a little more of me keeps on dying
Oh how I wish that I could be
The one that she's been lyin' with tonight
Instead of me I'd rather be
The one that she's been lyin' with tonight, she's lying
