It's Just a Joke, Man



I don't pretend to know the score
Oh someone's rich or poor
We work all day
It's just the way
I only know our dreams have died
Our lives have wrecked our pride
And love is old
It's just so cold

It's just a joke, man
It's just a joke, man
The world is breaking down
It's just a joke, man
It's just a joke, man
And ev'ryone's a clown


I don't pretend to like the rules
They've got us by the balls
And that's the truth
We have the proof
Just look around and see the dumb
The telly's made us numb
It's you and me
We ain't that free

I try my best to make it through
I'm hoping for a win or two
It's hard to care, but if you fight
You get a spot in the light

I don't pretend to feel the same
As killers in the game
They play so hard
With ev'ry card
It's just a pity winners lose
All players get the blues
And this is life
And this is life

She Loves Me



I see her in the morning
When I'm waking up
And see her looking lovely
Like a buttercup
Hallucinating? Maybe
Mine's a life of dreams
These eyes, this girl, I'm cracking
Nothing's what it seems

She loves me when I'm crazy
She loves me when I'm sad
She loves me when I'm hazy
Yeah, oh yeah, it's bad, bad, bad
She loves me like no other
Girl has ever done
It's never been this good, no
Not ever, with anyone


I get so down and bitter
Thinking she ain't real
But it's her love that's touching
Me, I know, I feel
I mean, I feel her loving
Like she's really here
It can't just be some visions
Gotta fight the fear

I see her in the morning
When I'm waking up
And see her looking lovely
Like a buttercup
I get so down and bitter
Thinking she ain't real
I get so down and bitter
Thinking she ain't real

You're Lying



You never felt the love that I gave
You never knew the fears and the rage
You never saw the pain in my eyes
You never left me broken with lies
You never walked away with my soul
You never put me down in a hole
You never were my lover so true
You never ... no, no, no, oh not you

You're lying
You're lying
I'm crying
You're lying ...


You never took the worship and praise
You never cherished all of our days
You never lost your mind to the fun
You never smiled when we were as one
You never ran your hand through my hair
You never made me feel like you cared
You never said you'd always be true
You never ... no, no, no, oh not you

You're lying
You're lying
I'm crying
You're lying ...


And what can I say?
I'm in a bad way
I thought you were it
A dream, I admit
And is it too late?
I'm dreading my fate
So what can I say?
I'm in a bad way

You never felt the love that I gave
You never knew the fears and the rage
You never saw the pain in my eyes
You never left me broken with lies

You're lying
You're lying
I'm crying
You're lying ...
