Livin' A Lie lyrics
Spotlight's on, it's shining bright
And I like standin' in it
It's only superficial light
But I don't want to end it

It's warmth and glow has taken hold
And I'm caught uup in it's shine
A Cinderella fairy tale
I want to claim as mine

Fancy clothes, a magic coach
And happy ever after
Like something from a story book
The Cinderella chapter

But when the clock strikes midnight
And I lie awake in bed
Things my Daddy told me
Keep running through my head

You gotta walk the straight and narrow
And to thine own self be true
Gotta aim straight as an arrow
All eyes are up on you
But sometimes it feels so good
That I can almost justify
Livin' a lie - livin' a lie
Livin' a lie - livin' a lie

Is it wrong for me to want
The sweeter grass that's greener?
To chase the all-American dream
I've always been a dreamer

At the top and still I've got
A heavy heart inside
I keep remembering
Things my Daddy told me as a child

You gotta walk the striaght and narrow
Gotta hold fast to the right
Gotta aim straight as an arrow
Walk onward toward the light
Oh, but when I'm out there in it
I think I might get by
Livin' a lie - livin' a lie
But I don't feel right livin' a lie
Livin' a lie - livin' a lie

All the fame and fortune
Glory and prestige
Can't make me happy if it goes
Against what I believe
And I've sacrificed my honor
My values and my pride
Livin' a lie - livin' a lie
Livin' a lie - livin' a lie
Livin' a lie - livin' a lie
Livin' a lie
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, I don't feel right
