  1. Don't Lie To Me

From the recording If I Could Play Jazz

In cart Not available Out of stock

From the ongoing 2920 Sessions. Don't Lie To Me is a beautifully arranged acoustic fingerpicking song. Written in the 1980s, the music that now backs this tune reminds me, if you will, of a heartbroken and abused woman forced to dance with her abusive husband and pretend that she is as happy as she could be. While the storyline begs for the truth, the music portrays the fantasy of life as it should be, not as it is.

Lyrics

Don't lie to me
Don't lie to me
Don't tell me tales
Don't lie to me
When I first met you
everything came alive for the first time
You were my sunshine
you chased all my clouds away
I loved you

Don't lie to me

Don't lie to me

Don't tell me tales

Don't lie to me
I feel just like the sea
taking that ship to that port and bringing it back again
I've been so many times before I
I just don't want to be the sea ... anymore
... I just don't want to be alone
any more
