Stunning Lies (Rurack/Starburst/Thomas)
Lyrics
STUNNING LIES

I'm done chasing dreams too far beyond my grasp
You're my homespun starlet that I can reach at last
Tiny cracks upon your face don't bother me at all
I'm back again tonight in answer to your call
CHORUS
Such stunning lies you tell
All draped in magic spells
Each further from the truth
Back here in this dark booth
I'll take this one last dance
And pray this is my chance
I'll fall in love tonight
With you my precious sight
You keep telling me that I'm you're only one
But you'll dance with 17 before the night is done
I guess I really know exactly where I stand
But when you whisper in my ear I become a better man
CHORUS
Such stunning lies you tell
All draped in magic spells
Each further from the truth
Back here in this dark booth
I'll take this one last chance
And pray this is the dance
We'll fall in love tonight
With you my precious sight
BRIDGE
So show me your true love
And help me live this dream
My angel from above
Be more than you seem
CHORUS
Those stunning lies you tell
All draped in magic spells
Each further from the truth
Back here in this dark booth
I'll take this one last dance
And pray this is our chance
To fall in love tonight
We'll fall in love tonight
