The hand is quicker than the eye
And sometimes the truth ain't no better than a lie

I'm gon' tell you a story about how things changed and why
One day you on top of the world, the next day you on the ground
I was the one that all of the ladies wanted to see
And I was the one all the fellas wanted to be
(The bigger they come and the harder they fall when they're falling down)
(The bigger they come and the harder they fall when they're falling down)

You know the hand is quicker than the eye
And sometimes the truth ain't no better than a lie

The hand is quicker than the eye
Sometimes the truth ain't no better than a lie

Are you waiting for something better
You face up and gonna come your way
You never was gonna stick around
You never meant to stay
I see you looking and you keep on staring at the front door
But I hope you found what you're looking for
(The bigger they come and the harder they fall when they're falling down)
(The bigger they come and the harder they fall when they're falling down)

The hand is quicker than the eye
The truth ain't no better than a lie

I thought you were my lover
I thought you were my friend
How dare you find a lover
Now I'm alone again
You used to call me sweetheart
You used to hold my head
You'll get what's coming to you
I'll get my sweet revenge
Sometimes you'll find the situation in exactly what is meant to be
You can't always believe in what you hear and everything that you see
Keep your dear friends close and your enemies even closer
Because not everything is gonna turn out how you make it is supposed to

The hand is quicker than the eye
The truth ain't no better than a lie
