We been hangin' together you n me
For what feels like a lifetime
Crawlin through these trenches, under these wires
You always been my lifeline

And you know I’d walk on red hot coals for you
And I’d do anything you want me to
But baby baby please
Don’t make me lie

I know times are tough and you made some bad deals
Down on that corner
But now you got to stand up for yourself
Stop goin down that road, I’m warnin' ya

And you know that I’ve got your back
I’m the one who’ll always cut you some slack
But baby baby please
Don’t make me lie

Don’t make me lie
Don’t make me do this to my sisters and brothers
Don’t make me lie
Burn all those bridges to all of the others
I stood by your side asked you to be my bride
But you ain’t gonna drag me down no more

We put our hands together
We swore we’d keep the faith
But now I feel like you’re turning
Into some kind of shadowy wraith

I want to pull you right back to me
But it’s like you’re blind and you can’t see
Oh Baby Baby please
Don’t make me lie
