Crowded House — Anyone Can Tell lyrics

I dream of a place that's hedged with roses
With a man in the middle don't talk in riddles
You get hung on every single word

But the truth is still a valuable thing
Some call it high, some call it low
And I hear about things you don't want to know
Don't get caught with your pants down baby

This world the criminal sing
There is another world waiting

Anyone can tell that I'm not lying
Anyone can tell
But anyone can tell
You can hide your face

Cause you can't escape the lie forever
Pull it into shades
I dream of a place that's overrun by children
And the lord is in the kitchen

Do your work and you'll get your rewards
Cause what you are is all that really matters

What is left you can easily scatter
In spite of what you have done
On the ground a head covered in mud
Don't step on my principles baby

One day you will have the wisdom
I will tell you
Everything straight

You can change your shape
Anyone can tell that I'm not lying
You can hide your face

Anyone can tell'Cos you can escape the lie forever
Anyone can tell
[ Lyrics from: ]
