    Lyrics

    Well she crept back in the house at half past three
    Shook her head to see him snoring in his sleep
    If he really loved me, she said
    I wouldn't have to be so mean...

    He's a heap of junk that pours from his top drawer
    He sometimes likes to spread it out around the floor
    It's evidence of what he was like
    He likes to remember when...

    Shall I lie, shall I lie, la lie?
    The end is growing near
    And we're treading water now
    And holding back our tears
    And the day is rising
    We're sinking
    Shall I lie?

    In a minute it will all be coming down
    And they know it now but no one makes a sound
    It's such a shame to ruin this bright
    Lazy sunny day...

    Shall I lie, shall I lie, la lie?
    The end is growing near
    And we're treading water now
    We're holding back our tears
    And the day is rising
    We're sinking
    Shall I lie?

    My my, the cruelest lies are often told without a word
    My my, the kindest truths are often spoken, never heard

    She said, You've been pushing me like I was a sore tooth.
    You can't respect me 'cause I've done so much for you.
    He said, Well I hate that it's come to this
    But baby I was doing fine. How do you think
    That I survived the other 25 before you?

    Shall I lie, shall I lie, la lie?
    The end is growing near
    And we're treading water now
    And holding back our tears
    And the day is rising
    We're sinking...
    Shall I lie?
