CHEAT 'N' LIE

Written by: Ken Hensley
Released on: 'Innocent Victim' November 1977


Well, it seems to me
That I've been cheated
And it would appear
That I've been lied to
All the promises
That you repeated
Were never destined
To come true

When I stop to think
How I once trusted you
It's harder still
To bear this doubt
I'm a innocent victim of
Heartbreaking circumstance
And I still can't get it figured out

'Cos all you did was cheat and lie
Now you're gone and made me cry
When my heart is heavy and
I just can't get it straight
Just the way you made me feel
A wound that only time can heal
Won't you take a little time
To show me my mistake

Now you're gone and made me cry
When my heart is heavy and
I just can't get it straight
Just the way you made me feel
A wound that only time can heal
Won't you take a little time
You know you gotta show me my mistake
