Fly On The Wall

Lyrics & Music by George Douglas Lee

Copyright © 2007, G. D. Lee

 

Intro: Dm, A, Dm, A

 

Dm What you don’t know can hurt you

Bf When you look into private lives

A You don’t know what it means, but it shatters the dream

Dm We’ve all got something to hide

 

Dm You haven’t changed, but you’re not the same

Bf To my bitter eyes, memory brings pain

A Ideals and illusions give way to delusions

Dm Perception has changed the game

 

D If I could be a fly on the wall, G I would know, Em I would know

A The secrets and feelings you hide in your heart

D and don’t show, A I don’t know

D There’s so much about you, a mystery, I’ll never G know, Em never know

A I’d know where I stand without taking a fall

Em If I was a G fly A on the D wall

 

Em Some people say they’re your friends but don’t know G you at all

Em They’re with you when you’re in your glory A but run when you fall

Em They tell you what they think that G you want to hear

G But the  echoes of gossip still ring in your ear

A What are they thinking, what do they mean?

G Things are rarely if Em ever just what they Dm seem

 

Dm We’re getting closer while drifting apart

Bf Haunted by memories that live in my heart

A Nothing is what it appears to be

Dm And it hurts when you feel deceived

Dm Mistrust and suspicion has loosened the tie

Bf And you hide from reality

A When I’m with you, I feel so alone

Dm I’m blinded by what I don’t see

 

D If I could be a fly on the wall, G I would know, Em I would know

A The secrets and feelings you hide in your heart

D and don’t show, A I don’t know

D There’s so much about you, a mystery, I’ll never G know, Em never know

A I’d know where I stand without taking a fall

Em If I was a G fly A on the D wall

 

D If I could be a fly on the wall, G I would know, Em I would know

A The secrets and feelings you hide in your heart

D and don’t show, A I don’t know

D There’s so much about you, a mystery, I’ll never G know, Em never know

A I’d know where I stand without taking a fall

Em If I was a G fly A on the D wall

 

Repeat intro: Dm, A, Dm, A
