On The Lie (Album Version)

On The Lie (Album Version)

The Goo Goo Dolls

He burned down the house one night
He had a loaded six-pack gun
He said that Jesus Christ was just like a cop
You know, you never know when they'll come
She said every day above ground was another dream come true
He said I'd hang and swap cliches all night
But I'm not in love with you

And I never got serious
'Til everything went black
And I ain't so curious
That I'm ever going back

On the lie [Repeat: x4]

He said, man you want to be Elvis
I said I ain't dying face down
He said you gotta die facing up in the world
'cause there's too many holes around

He asked what was wrong with me
He said I looked like a Hollywood girl
I said that Hollywood can fall into the ocean, man
'cause it's the ugliest place in the whole wide world, and

And I never got serious
'Til everything went black
And I ain't so curious
That I'm ever going back

On the lie [Repeat: x4]

On the lie, he was
On the lie
On the lie, she was
On the lie
On the lie, he was
On the lie
It's all been a stinkin' lie
