Lyrics:
As I was walking on the bridge the other day, I thought I saw you but you
ducked and drove away. I could've sworn you told me you were gonna be out
of town. I wanted to make sure but I couldn't track you down. And then
the other night I tried to surprise you at your work, but the guys in
your office said you'd gone home with a smirk. Funny thing, you weren't
at home and I began to sense a change. It was then I figured out that
something was a little strange.
For so long, I thought you were better than anything, but now I realize
that you're not the way you seem. You must've thought that I was much too
dumb to figure out that you're a lying cheat that's always running about.
Like all those nights you told me you were going out with the guys. Did
you think I'd believe you after you told 26 lies?

I hope you like what you see!  Please e-mail me if you have any
questions, comments, requests, or wanna talk about DHC!
Thanx

Luke
