I'm Telling Me A Lie    (1980)

Well these memories of mine don't seem to know you're gone
They just 'cause my pain to stay and linger on
I fool myself each night and say everything will be okay
But I know my dear I'm telling me a lie

When we went our separate ways the bottle helped me through the days
But the night time always found me wanting you
But when I wake from this restless sleep I find you're only in my dreams
And then I know my dear I'm telling me a lie

Found myself call out your name although you're not around
And talking to these shadows have got me down
I must be an awful sight huggin' my pillow every night
'Cause I know my dear I'm telling me a lie

When we went our separate ways the bottle helped me through the days
But the night time always found me wanting you
But when I wake from this restless sleep I find you're only in my dreams
And then I know my dear I'm telling me a lie

And then I know my dear I'm telling me a lie
