about

Another classic originated in Camus' studio in dumbo NY with Camus and Paul. We took this one to Atlanta and re worked it with Don McCollister...ahh the memories

lyrics

what kind of lies are you selling me
well you know I ain't buying
I ain't the one who make believes
you took me for a test ride
now you're letting him drive

what kind of hold does he have on you
Is it cash you're after, well
that makes you a muse with benefits
but you just think I'm hatin'
well all I'm really saying is

what if it blows your mind
what if it's just not right
maybe you should go and think this over

you're trying to get to heaven but you got a little hell to pay
never been a follower I ain't about to start today
believe I see you

if that's what you want girl
get what you want girl
said that's what you want girl.. go ahead

why do your friends keep telling me
I'm the best you ever had
I played a role in your fantasy
but happy ever after ain't really what you're after

what if it blows your mind
what if it's just not right
maybe you should go and think this over

you're trying to get to heaven but you got a little hell to pay
never been a follower I ain't about to start today
I can't believe you

and furthermore
you told me that it's over so what you calling for
and furthermore
you said you didn't want my loving anymore
look how you at me now

you're trying to get to heaven but you got a little hell to pay
I can't believe you played me to the left
I'm salty about it but I'll be okay.
I'm a be alright hey hey
