I got these in a letter from Peter Walsh almost a decade ago, after "apart" came out and I'd written him a fan letter. This was then my favourite lyric of all time.

it still is.


WORLD OF LIARS



they lived above the railyards
they'd watch the lighted trains through the early dark
with just enough to pay the rent
they keep thinking one day they're gonna make it


they never will
they never will make it
what happens if the life that you're in turns and betrays you at last
no one is true
not even him & you
you're in a world of liars




a smoky room, the jukebox plays
"You're Killing Me With Kindness"
you fall for that & always do
you feel yourself going under
that's how it goes lately
that's how it gets lately


you'd figured on some place in the world
those whiskey coloured nights
and it's true
at least it is for you
you're in a world of liars
it's a world of liars



people always at each others throats
it proves how much you care
didn't you care? didn't you care?
didn't you care? didn't you care?
in a world of liars


the waterfront, the neon bars
you know these places backwards
a mess of fears hits on you
& that's what you wake up with
once in a while
once in a while

but the same old hope in your heart every day
whatever happened to that?
if no one is true, not even him and you
you're in a world of liars
it's a world of liars
liars, liars, liars


that's how it gets lately
that's how it goes lately



no one is true
not even him and you
you're in world of liars
it's a world of liars

& you feel yourself going under
feel yourself going under
you're going under
