Ricky Van Shelton Somebody Lied Lyrics
Hello, yeah, this is me
Lord it’s been a long, long time
I know this ain’t no social call
So go ahead, get it off your mind
You heard what? Well it ain’t true
I was here most all last night
I got over you the day you left
Could it be somebody lied?
They said what? That I was cryin’?
I haven’t shed a tear in years
That I spoke your name? Well that’s insane
I’ve hardly noticed you’re not here
That I showed your picture to some stranger?
Don’t you think I’ve got no pride?
They’ve been here at home face down on a shelf
Lord, I bet somebody lied
But if they were true
What would it matter to you?
Would it change the way you feel?
If the rumors were right
Would you be here tonight
To help this old heart heal?
Well, don’t worry, it wasn’t me
Just someone whose world was torn in two
Someone who looks a lot like me
And loves someone like you
So forget the tears I never cried
Lord I bet somebody lied
