"If You're Lying" lyrics - ASHFORD & SIMPSON

"If You're Lying"
(Nick Ashford / Valerie Simpson)

I died, I died a thousand times
I cried, played around, grabbing what I wanted
I wanted everything
I thought I had it
I was mistaken there. Let me warn you
Don't try to play for my benefit
I already know
Nothing really good's gonna come out of it

If you're lying in my face
Listen while I run it down
Take a word from the wiser
It's your love you've got to offer

I don't want to play games
If you're fooling me
Sure would be a doggone shame
You know what I mean
That's how so many lose their dreams
You give me plenty of style
But what I'm looking for is underneath that smile
