MICHAEL MCDONALD lyrics - Love Lies

MICHAEL MCDONALD
"Love Lies"
(Michael McDonald And Randy Goodrum)

What's that lyin' on her pillow
Folded up so neat
What once was love is now a letter
Lying where she used to sleep
Oh, I thought love was something I could count on
But it took her to show me that

[Chorus:]
Love lies-right to your face
Love lies-just when I had faith
It would let me down
I know that love lies-right to the end
Love lies-I know the word will never mean the same to me

What's this emptiness inside me
Where her promise used to be
She said she'd be here to guide me
I guess now the joke's on me
Oh, I thought love was something like devotion
But it took her to show me that

[Chorus]

Just when you think you know what love is about
Someone takes your place, and you find that

[Chorus]
