No Tellin' Lies Lyrics

(4)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Wait Until the Summer's Gone (3:37)
The time is right but don't be critical
The same could happen to you
You know I'm not right and I can't be analytical
About the things you're going through
Look at me baby now you think I might be crazy
But you just can't touch me now
I know I'm not right and I really can't be lazy
and I think I'm going home

Look into my eyes

The high is fine but don't be cynical
The game is still the same
If you're coming up light and you want some retribution
Then believe in what I say
Take a position where there ain't no superstition
And just grab whatever's gold
'Cause if you're coming up light on the day of testimony
They'll just send you packing home
They're gonna do it to ya!

Look into my eyes

Wait for the lies

Wait until the summer's gone
Waiting for the lines to fall
Wait until the summer's gone
Look into my eyes
Wait for the lies...

4. I Don't Care (3:04)
5. Lullaby (4:44)
You packed your bags, I heard you left last night
You left a world of broken hearts
You couldn't tell us why
You only made us cry
Like in '64
The days are long the gloom is hid by night
They make a point we can't deny
The pain we can't conceal
The feelings that we feel
Those that never heal

So here's a lullabye
Close your eyes and sleep tonight
So here's a lullabye
Close your eyes and make us cry

The world you dreamed
We tried to make our lives
You made a point we can't deny
I know the dream was real
The difference is feel
How mysterious
You stole the show, you know you played it right
Way back in 1965
Oh no, well well
The truth was far from real
Reality was feel
Why not save a seal

The days are long your tune is in the song
Without your love along the way
You said the things you know could make it right
If we did'nt lose the way
6. No Tellin' Lies (3:27)
In the middle of winter
The trees are bare and the bears are hibernating
The only sound in the forest
Is the sound of snow heard crashing to the ground

And in the middle of loving
I hope you'll find a place in your heart for them
They really can't do us any harm
It is only us who can do harm to them

But there's an animal that winter won't affect at all
He sits by fireplaces waiting for the winter's fall
He owns guns and oh you know he's got that gun in his hand
He's a man and oh he's got that precious thing in his hand

So in the middle of loving
I hope you'll find a place in your heart for them
When it's cold and the grass is gold
All the animals take shelter as they hide
And when an animal can't find shelter
Some time winter takes over and he dies

But there's an animal that winter won't affect at all
He sits by fireplaces waiting for the winter's fall
He owns guns and oh you know he's got that gun in his hand
He's a man and oh he's got that precious life in his hand
7. Takin' a Stance (3:54)
8. But No More (3:54)
The time is now or never
The crashing is coming near
The delphi is on the corner
And he whispers in your ear

It used to be men could be solemn even while laughing
And laughter could be heard shore to shore
But no more

Now all you hear is crying
Cause no one's on the phone
Your feet are just now freezing over
You know that you are here all alone

It used to be men could be solemn even while laughing
And laughter could be heard shore to shore
But no more
When I think of friends and places
Things we wanted, hoped we'd be
All that's left is fading traces
Memories of what use to be
Hear their laughter, see their shadows
Feel the darkness, see the light
We had lit all but lost so quickly
We think we won but we lost the fight
But it's all the same to me
I've seen all I want to see
First they laugh at you
Then they cry
Say they'll always be there
Then they die
So alone yet so alive

It used to be men could be solemn even while laughing
And laughter could be heard shore to shore
But no more
