SOME OF MY LIES ARE TRUE (SOONER OR LATER)

(Cipollina/Colla/Gibson/Hayes/Hopper/Lewis)

Say you wanna be a friend of mine
See me all the time
You don’t care what I do
But it all sounds the same to me
Hey, can’t you see
It’s just like I told you

I know you think that I’ve been stringing you along
And that I’ve told you a few, but

Chorus:
Sooner or later when you say I love you
You’re gonna realize that some of my lies are true

I never told you that I was the one
Said it just for fun
You know, you knew it too
So why so much on the telephone
I’m never home
It’s just like I told you

Because it’s real the way you used to make me feel
It makes it so hard to say
But nothing can change the way I feel today
Don’t you see that

(Chorus)

Because it’s real the way you used to make me feel
It makes it so hard to say but
Nothing can change the way I feel today
Don’t you see that

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics

1. Some Of My Lies (Sooner or Later)
Huey Lewis and the News  

DON’T MAKE ME DO IT

(Cipollina/Colla/Gibson/Hayes/Hopper/Lewis)

A girl like you is never wrong
Someone like me can’t be too strong
I know you always get your way
You better listen when I say

Chorus:
Don’t make me do it
Don’t make me do it to ya
Don’t make me do it
Don’t make me do it to ya

I won’t just be your broken toy
You look again you’ve got no choice
There’s no such thing as wrong or right
When does the day become the night

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics

2. Don't Make Me Do It
Huey Lewis and the News  

STOP TRYING

(Cipollina/Colla/Gibson/Hayes/Hopper/Lewis)

Chorus:
Stop trying, stop trying to call her
She doesn’t want your sympathy
Stop trying, stop trying to call her
She’s exactly what she wants to be

She goes up and down but never goes out
She’s getting it all for free
She’s shadow boxing and loosing the bout
It’s pretty easy to see

I know you’ve, you’ve seen a better sight
You say you really wanna help
You better open your eyes, hey

We see the morning face in the bathroom mirror
She’s careful never to see
It tells a story of the sleepless nights
Not what she seems to be

I know you’ve, you’ve seen better days
You say you owe it to yourself
You’re gonna change your ways

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics

3. Stop Trying
Huey Lewis and the News  

NOW HERE’S YOU

(Cipollina/Colla/Gibson/Hayes/Hopper/Lewis/McFee)

I’ve paid my money and I’m taking my chances
I’ve done my share of city dances
If I fall I’ll just play on through

I deal with love the best as I’m able
I keep my cards on top of the table
I don’t spend much of my time blue

Chorus:
And now here’s you
Now here’s you
Here is you

There’s never been anything that any girl could say
There’s never been one that’s got to me anyway
And I sure thought I knew my heart too
I got eyes but I didn’t see you coming
You could have been just any woman
And if you are, why am I so blue
It must be you

(Chorus)

When you’re not looking is when you’re found
Love comes looking to spin you around
Round and round

I’ve been in love too much too deep
If you don’t need loving
What’s it gonna be
It’s gotta be, yeah

I’ve paid my money and I’m taking my chances
I’ve done my share of city dances
If I fall I’ll just play on through

I deal with love the best as I’m able
I keep my cards on top of the table
I don’t spend much of my time blue

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics

4. Now Here's You
Huey Lewis and the News  

I WANT YOU

(Marnell)

I know you, you know me
You want love, I want that too

Chorus:
I want you, to stay until my love is through
I want you, to make tonight forever

I know just what I want
You’re not so sure
If I give you all I’ve got
Would your love be pure

 
Lyrics

5. I Want You
Huey Lewis and the News  

DON’T EVER TELL ME THAT YOU LOVE ME

(Cipollina/Colla/Gibson/Hayes/Hopper/Lewis)

I met her down at the store on the corner
She was a prettier girl than was ever in a magazine
She was an angel all dressed up like the devil
I knew I’d never forgive myself unless I asked her out this eve

So I asked to the movies and she put her arms around me
Right at the start of the show
The she kissed me on the ear and she whispered dear love

Chorus:
She said, don’t ever tell me that you love me
Just don’t say those three words to me
So I don’t ever have to be true
She said, don’t ever tell me that you need me
Just don’t say those three words to me so I don’t have to worry

Can you imagine how it hit me?
And the funny thing is that it was just occurring to myself
So I said, hey don’t jump to conclusions
Just what makes you so sure that I could ever fall for you myself

But even as I said it
I knew I never meant it
I could feel cupids arrow from above
By the end of the movie I was falling in love

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics

6. Don't Ever Tell Me That You Love Me
Huey Lewis and the News  

HEARTS

(Cipollina/Colla/Gibson/Hayes/Hopper/Lewis)

It’s not too pretty, it’s such a shame
These things always end the same
You don’t deserve just what you’ll get
But you ain’t learned your lesson yet

So what if he, said I love you
So what if he, thought he’d be true, well

Chorus:
Love, is whispered token
And hearts, were meant to be broken

City girl it’s always this way
Romeo leaves with nothing to say
So what about you and your surprise
Come on babe and dry your eyes

When will you see that he was fool
When will you see he followed the rules, that

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics

7. Hearts
Huey Lewis and the News  

TROUBLE IN PARADISE

(Cipollina/Colla/Gibson/Hayes/Hopper/Lewis)

Billy’s home, he just back from LA
Plenty of lines but nothing to say
He said I seen this movie and it don’t end nice
Looks like trouble in paradise

He used to be cool he used to laugh a lot
Down at the brothers in the parking lot
Now he’s sick, and he’s scared and he’s paying the price

Chorus:
Trouble in paradise
Trouble in paradise
Momma said he always was so nice
Trouble in paradise

American son he’s not very old
An American dream that’s never been sold
The smile on his face is his last disguise
We’ve got trouble in paradise

There’s a scream inside that shouts here I am
Some people say you we’ve got to do all we can
Me I don’t know you see I’ve been there myself once or twice

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics

8. Trouble in Paradise
Huey Lewis and the News  

WHO CARE’S

(Cipollina/Colla/Gibson/Hayes/Hopper/Lewis)

Moving on the evening of the 87th day
Maybe a solution might affect you right away
Jesus taught himself, a certain state of mind
Line em up, move em along, haven’t got much time

Chorus:
Who cares? No one’s talking anyway
Who cares? Won’t the problem go away
Who cares? Change the channel, standard shift
Who cares? Does any body give a shit?

Dimwits on the freeway stay alive at 55
Politicians speeding, just trying to survive
Couldn’t stop the press, what was a bloody mess
Mashin’ down a paper sack and couldn’t pass the test

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics

9. Who Cares
Huey Lewis and the News  

IF YOU REALLY LOVE ME YOU’LL LET ME

(Cipollina/Colla/Gibson/Hayes/Hopper/Lewis)

I’m no fool and I won’t be cheated and lied to
I know you think that I’m so cruel
But what about me, what am I supposed to do
Just stay home, stay home and watch TV?

Chorus:
If you really love me you let me
You always try to upset me
If you really love me you let me
If you love me you’ll let me go

I can see that you don’t really believe me
You think you should be able to do what you wanna do
Well why should I let you make an idiot of me
Anyway is that all you can do is say

(Chorus)

 
Lyrics
