lyrics

I know the game, I know the rules
They made it famous in the Paris school
Back when love was free
Of course we came to it quite late
Love loved its last way back in sixty-eight
Now it's an industry

Still we were both born to be free
Both born the prisoners of philosophy
Mine for you and yours for me
And I make no claim upon your kiss
We were both born free to feel like this
All wrecked with jealousy

I know the rules, we both agreed
I know it's not supposed to bother me
Where you may have stayed last night
And I know the truth might set you free
But all the truth has ever done for me
Is kill my appetite

Can't you lie, lie, lie, darling, lie to me
Can't you lie, lie, lie, darling, lie to me
Like it's only me
Lie, lie, lie, darling, lie to me
I didn't come here for your honesty

Yes, we both came to it quite late
No longer love, but loss that felt like fate
And that great big closed account
And I'd already had a wife
Had payed the state to mate for life
To this day I wonder if I made it out alive

And that's the only wisdom I've acquired
The sting that lingers from the fire
The rings on fingers and the yokes on necks
We each get burned and so it goes
And anymore I do not care to know
Which one's the second sex

Can't you lie, lie, lie, darling, lie to me
Can't you lie, lie, lie, darling, lie to me
Make me believe
Lie, lie, lie, darling, lie to me
I didn't come here for your honesty
For fear the truth might set you free
