Låtskrivere: Glenn Lewis Frey/Donald Hugh Henley

City girls just seem to find out early
how to open doors with just a smile
A rich old man, and she won’t have to worry
She’ll dress up all in lace and go in style

Late at night a big old house gets lonely
I guess every form of refuge has its price
And it breaks her heart to think her love is only
Given to a man with hands as cold as ice

So she tells him she must go out for the evening
To comfort an old friend who’s feelin’ down
But he knows where she’s goin’ as she’s leavin’
She is headed for the cheatin’ side of town

You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you’d realize
There ain’t no way to hide your lyin’ eyes

On the other side of town a boy is waiting
With fiery eyes and dreams no one could steal
She drives on through the night, anticipating
‘Cause he makes her feel the way she used to feel

She rushes to his arms they fall together
She whispers that it’s only for a while
She swears that soon she’ll be comin’ back forever
She goes away and leaves him with a smile

You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes …….

She gets up and pours herself a strong one
And stares out at the stars up in the sky
Another night it’s gonna be a long one
She draws the shade and hangs her head to cry

She wonders how it ever got this crazy
She thinks about a boy she knew in school
Did she get tired or did she just get lazy
She’s so far gone she feels just like a fool

My oh my you sure know how to arrange things
You set it up so well so carefully
Ain’t it funny how your new life didn’t change things
You’re still the same old girl you used to be

You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes ………

There ain’t no way to hide your lyin’ eyes
Honey you can’t hide your lyin’ eyes
