Lyric:

A key in the door, a step on the floor!
A note on the table, and a meal in the micro
note says "I'm in bed,
please make sure that you're fed!"
If you're taking a shower,
you can borrow my bathrobe?
When I'm asleep I dream you move in next week!
I crumple the note and save it
to put inside my shoe box! ~
Shoe box of lies!
It's under my bed, it's never been read!
It's in with my school stuff
and my mom never cleans there!
From my first little fib, when I still wore a bib!
To my latest attempt at pretending I'm someone
who's not seventeen, doesn't know what you mean!
When talk turns to single malts,
or stilton, or my shoe box! ~ ~
Shoe box of lies!
shoe box! ~
Shoe box of lies!
Did somebody tell you
this is how it's supposed to be?
Or did you just find it
and you don't want anymore from me?
Was it something I said,
or was it something you read?
That's making me think that
I should never have come here!
I can offer you lies,
I can tell you goodbye!
I can tell you I'm sorry,
but I can't tell you the truth, dear!
And what if I could, would it do any good?
You'll still never get to see
the contents of my shoe box! ~
Shoe box of lies!
Shoe box! ~
Shoe box of lies!
You're so nineteen ninety
and it's nineteen ninety four!
Leave this world behind me
'Cause you don't want me anymore!
Lie, e, i, e, i, e, i!
Lie, e, i, e, i, e, i!
Lie, e, i, e, i, e, i!
Lie, e, i, e, i, e, i!
Lie, e, i, e, i, e, i!
Lie, e, i, e, i, e, i!
Lie, e, i!
Lie, e, i!
Lie, e, i, e, i, e, i!
Lie, e, i, e, i, e, i!
Lie, i, e, i, e, i, e, i!
Lie, e, i!
Lie, e, i!
Lie, e, i, e, i, e, i!
E, i!
