Well you've started again
With the wife of a friend
On another night you hope you won't recall
And the wine that you're drinkin'
Doesn't keep you from thinkin'
Of the bitter taste that lingers in your soul
As you listen to your lies
Once again you realize
That she doesn't mean a thing to you at all
And I watch you climb that stairway
To the bottom
Every evening in that mirror on the wall

You take pride in deceiving
One who tried hard believin' in you
Even after all the lies you told
But each lie that you've spoken
And each vow that you've broken
Was a new nail in the coffin of your soul
If you think someone's cryin'
For the love that is dyin'
With the trust that you betray each time you fall
Look around you on that stairway to the bottom
No one's watchin' but that mirror on the wall

Look around you on that stairway to the bottom
No one's watchin' but that mirror on the wall
