if (working title that might stick)

The three-line chorus rested a while on my computer. It's where the title comes from. Today I used my good old (printed) rhyming dictionary a lot to make out viable words for the verses ans bridge. For some reason it would not rhyme "other" with "bother", though. But it sounds okay if you read or sing it with my accent ;-)


you know how to sweet-talk
you know how to charm
used to getting your will
you don't mind to cause harm

you cheat your way through
you're coming off well
how long you'll succeed
you never can tell

if what you said would ring true
if I weren't a liar like you
maybe I would fall for you, too

deceiving your best friend
say, how did that feel
you have caused hurt
that time will not heal

now you say that you need me
you pledge undying love
but I sense your selfish will
in velvet glove

if what you said would ring true
if I weren't a liar like you
maybe I would fall for you, too

can't we just leave it at
what we just had
with no fuss and bother
'cause we see through each other
so we won't have to regret
things that we said

if what you said would ring true
if I weren't a liar like you
maybe I would fall for you, too
