STAN ROGERS


Lies Lyrics

At last the kids are gone now for the day
She reaches for the coffee as the school bus pulls away
Another day to tend the house and plan
For Friday at the Legion when she's dancing with her
man

Sure was a bitter winter but Friday will be fine
And maybe last year's Easter dress will serve her one
more time
She'd pass for twenty nine but for her eyes
But winter lines are telling wicked lies

All lies, all those lines are telling wicked lies
Lies, all lies. Too many lines there in that face
Too many to erase or to disguise, they must be telling
lies

Is this the face that won for her the man
Whose amazed and clumsy fingers put that ring upon her
hand
No need to search that mirror for the years The menace
in their message shouts across the blur of tears

So this is beauty's finish! Like Rodin's "Belle
Heaulmie're"
The pretty maiden trapped inside the ranch wife's toil
and care
Well, after seven kids, that's no surprise
But why cannot her mirror tell her lies

(Chorus)

Then she shakes off the bitter web she wove
And turns to set the mirror, gently, face down by the
stove
She gathers up her apron in her hand
Pours a cup of coffee, drips Carnation from the can

And thinks ahead to Friday, 'cause Friday will be fine!
She'll look up in that weathered face that loves hers,
line for line
To see that maiden shining in his eyes
And laugh at how her mirror tells her lies

(Chorus)
