The Camera Never Lies (Elton John)

Music by Elton John Lyrics by Bernie Taupin I see you tempt the night I see you take a bite You can tell me you were home But the camera never lies You walk out in disguise To pull the wool over my eyes You play me for a fool To believe your alibis And you can count on being safe as houses Underestimate my eyes But you can't argue with the image The camera never lies There's no distance put between us Safe enough for you to hide I'm watching all of your secrets The camera never lies I recommend first prize For acting so surprised For acting like you love me The camera never lies I'll take my wounded pride I'll take it on the chin Your profile fills the frame How good you look on film Smoke screens and sweet deceiving Replace the face of trust The shutter falls each time you meet him A negative becomes my plus
