Not Forced To Lie

NOT FORCED TO LIE - Written by Carroll Bryant


The burdens that we carry can make us very weary 
And sometimes love is just not enough
To see us through

Even though you're only strong enough to be lonely
You're still growing and I know sometimes
You can't help to feel the way that you do

When I see your face I have to catch my breath
And on the wings of love I want to fly
Fly with you tonight

But you're telling me stories 
You tell them with such fury 
Let me tell you something, baby
You're getting me high
But your missing your calling
I know you're not falling (for me)
Let me say it more clearly, girl
You're not forced to lie

(Not forced to lie)

Every evening, every morning 
We pretend to play this game and sometimes
It's hard to tell if you win or lose

Even though you're so contrary 
I find it necessary sometimes to spank you
When you get the notion that you got something to prove

When I see your face I have to catch my breath
And on the wings of love I want to fly
Fly with you tonight

But you're telling me stories 
You tell them with such fury 
Let me tell you something, baby
You're getting me high
But your missing your calling
I know you're not falling (for me)
Let me say it more clearly, girl
You're not forced to lie

(Not forced to lie)

You bury your feelings 
Hide them away
You hide them from me
My love you keep stealing
Even when I am willing
To give it to you for free

I can't stand this time that we share
I keep on thinking that you really don't care 
I can't stand this time away from you

The burdens that we carry can make us very weary 
And sometimes love is just not enough
To see us through

Even though you're only strong enough to be lonely
You're still growing and I know sometimes
You can't help to feel the way that you do

But you're telling me stories 
You tell them with such fury 
Let me tell you something, baby
You're getting me high
But your missing your calling
I know you're not falling (for me)
Let me say it more clearly, girl
You're not forced to lie

(Not forced to lie)
