[VERSE]
C 
Well, you've started again with the wife of a friend
G 
On another night you hope you won't recall
And the wine that you're drinking doesn't keep you from thinking
C 
Of the bitter taste that lingers in your soul
[CHORUS]
C  
And as you listen to your lies, once again you realize
F 
That she doesn't mean a thing to you at all
C 
And I watch you climb that stairway to the bottom
G C 
Every evening in that mirror on the wall
[INTERLUDE - KEY CHANGE]
C C/B A7 
[VERSE]
D  
You take pride in deceiving one who tried hard believing in you
A 
Even after all the lies you told
And the lies that you've spoken and each vow that you've broken
D 
Was a new nail in the coffin of your soul
[CHORUS]
D 
And if you think someone's crying for the love that is dying
G 
With the trust that you betray each time you fall
D 
Look around you on that stairway to the bottom
A D 
No one's watching but that mirror on the wall
G D 
Look around you on that stairway to the bottom
A D 
No one's watching but that mirror on the wall
A G D
