Livin A Lie
Spotlight's on, it's shining bright

And I like standin' in it

It's only superficial light

But I don't want to end it

It's warmth and glow has taken hold

And I'm caught uup in it's shine

A Cinderella fairy tale

I want to claim as mine

Fancy clothes, a magic coach

And happy ever after

Like something from a story book

The Cinderella chapter

But when the clock strikes midnight

And I lie awake in bed

Things my Daddy told me

Keep running through my head



You gotta walk the straight and narrow

And to thine own self be true

Gotta aim straight as an arrow

All eyes are up on you

But sometimes it feels so good

That I can almost justify

Livin' a lie -- livin' a lie

Livin' a lie -- livin' a lie



Is it wrong for me to want

The sweeter grass that's greener?

To chase the all-American dream

I've always been a dreamer

At the top and still I've got

A heavy heart inside

I keep remembering

Things my Daddy told me as a child



You gotta walk the striaght and narrow

Gotta hold fast to the right

Gotta aim straight as an arrow

Walk onward toward the light

Oh, but when I'm out there in it

I think I might get by

Livin' a lie -- livin' a lie

But I don't feel right livin' a lie

Livin' a lie -- livin' a lie



All the fame and fortune

Glory and prestige

Can't make me happy if it goes

Against what I believe

And I've sacrificed my honor

My values and my pride

Livin' a lie -- livin' a lie

Livin' a lie -- livin' a lie

Livin' a lie -- livin' a lie

Livin' a lie

Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie,
