The Eagles - Lyin' Eyes 1 lyrics

Your rating:
City girl just seems 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 refuge has it's 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's headed for the cheatin' side of town.

You can't hide your lyin' eyes
And your smile is a 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 fiery eyes
And dreams no one could steal
She drives on through the night, anticipating
'Cause 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 comin' back forever
She goes away, and leaves him with a smile.


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 change things?
You're still the same old girl you used to be.


There ain't no way
To hide your lyin' eyes.

Honey, you can't hide your lyin' eyes.
