Lyrics [Chorus]:
BEAUTIFUL LIES,
BEAUTIFUL LIES,
EACH WORD IS A HEARTACHE
IN PERFECT DISGUISE;
I CAN'T HELP BUT LISTEN
AND THEN I REALIZE,
THE WORDS YOU HAVE SPOKEN
ARE BEAUTIFUL LIES.

CALL ME A DREAMER
IN A FOOL'S PARADISE,
MY HEART KNOWS NO DIFFERENCE
AT LOVE IT'S UNWISE;
TELL ME YOU LOVE ME
AND WILL TILL I DIE,
LIKE MUSIC YOU THRILL ME
WITH BEAUTIFUL LIES.

[Chorus]:
BEAUTIFUL LIES,
BEAUTIFUL LIES,
EACH WORD IS A HEARTACHE
IN PERFECT DISGUISE;
I CAN'T HELP BUT LISTEN
AND THEN I REALIZE,
THE WORDS YOU HAVE SPOKEN
ARE BEAUTIFUL LIES.

I HEAR WEDDING BELLS RINGING,
I HAVE STARS IN MY EYES,
I SEE RED ROSES BLOOMING,
A RAINBOW IN THE SKY.
ALL SWEET THINGS COME TO ME
IN THE TWINKLE OF AN EYE,
WHEN YOU HOLD ME AND TELL ME
THOSE BEAUTIFUL LIES.

[Chorus]:
BEAUTIFUL LIES,
BEAUTIFUL LIES,
EACH WORD IS A HEARTACHE
IN PERFECT DISGUISE;
I CAN'T HELP BUT LISTEN
AND THEN I REALIZE,
THE WORDS YOU HAVE SPOKEN
ARE BEAUTIFUL LIES.

Lyrics ONCE WE WERE SO HAPPY,
YOU WERE MY VERY OWN,
THEN YOU BOUGHT THAT GUITAR
AND RUINED OUR HAPPY HOME.
YOU TOLD ME YOU'RE GONNA PICK,
YOU'RE GONNA BE A STAR,
WELL, I'M TIRED OF PLAYING
SECOND FIDDLE TO AN OLD GUITAR.
YOU GAZE AT THAT GUITAR
ON YOUR KNEE
IN A WAY
THAT YOU NEVER LOOK AT ME.
THIS LOVE AFFAIR OF YOURS
HAS GONE TOO FAR,
AND I'M TIRED OF PLAYING
SECOND FIDDLE TO AN OLD GUITAR.

YOU SAID IT WOULDN'T BE LONG
TILL YOU'D BE NUMBER ONE,
THAT WE'D HAVE LOTS OF MONEY
AND WE'D HAVE LOTS OF FUN.
WELL, ALL YOU'VE DONE
IS PICK AND GRIN
AND SING OFF KEY SO FAR,
AND I'M TIRED OF PLAYING
SECOND FIDDLE TO AN OLD GUITAR.
YOU GAZE AT THAT GUITAR
ON YOUR KNEE
IN A WAY
THAT YOU NEVER LOOK AT ME.
THIS LOVE AFFAIR OF YOURS
HAS GONE TOO FAR,
AND I'M TIRED OF PLAYING
SECOND FIDDLE TO AN OLD GUITAR.
