Jack Newsome – Lying (Next to You) (From Songland) Lyrics

Lying (Next to You) Lyrics by Jack Newsome


I stick around ’cause I remember
But I’m just scrolling through pictures
Never thought this bed could can bigger?
It’s not the same
You don’t ask and I never say it
I got so good at faking
What’s the straw to finally break it?
We say I love you but it doesn’t sound the same

Ahh-ooh
We’re caught in a wreck
Ahh-ooh
And i make the mess

Staring at the mirror like i got to haiz
Pardone me saying we’re not supposed to wait
I can keep pretending but it aint the truth
‘Cause I’ve been lying next to you
Ooh I’ve been lying next to you

Like me in what are you thinking
I hate to see you hurt
So i denie that something is missing
And say i love you but that only makes you worth

Ahh-ooh
What i expect
Ahh-ooh
Never the less

I’m Staring at the mirror like i got to haiz
Pardone me saying we’re not supposed to wait
I can keep pretending but it aint the truth
‘Cause I’ve been lying next to you

Is it a fate?
Am I just crazy
Thinking that things might change
Or am I just doing the same damn thing?

Staring at the mirror like i got to haiz
Pardone me saying we’re not supposed to wait
I can keep pretending but it ain’t the truth
‘Cause I’ve been lying next to you

Yeah I got my secrets in my heart to keep
‘Cause you keep lying next to me
Would it make it different if we told the truth?
Would we still be strangers in this room?
Would I still keep lying next to you?


“Lying (Next to You)” (Produced by Shane McAnally)

I stick around ’cause I remember
The way it was in the pictures
Is it me, or is this bed a bit bigger?
There’s way too much space
I don’t ask and you never say it
We got so good at faking
What’s the straw to finally break it?
We say I love you
‘Cause that’s what you’re supposed to say

Ahh-ooh
We’re caught in a wreck
Ahh-ooh
What’d you expect?

Staring at the ceiling ’cause you just can’t sleep
You’ve been lying next to me
And, boy, I know the feeling, ’cause it’s half past 2:00
And I’ve been lying next to you

Ahh-ooh
Is this just a phase?
Ahh-ooh
Are we just crazy
Thinking that things might change
Or are we just doing the same damn thing?

Yeah, staring at the ceiling ’cause you just can’t sleep
You’ve been lying next to me
And, boy, I know the feeling, ’cause it’s half past 2:00
And I’ve been lying next to you
Would it make it different if we told the truth?
Would we still be strangers in this room?
Would I still keep lying next to you?


“Lying (Next to You)” (Original Song Performance)

I stick around ’cause it’s familiar
But I’m just scrolling through pictures
I don’t know how we got so bitter
It’s not the same
All our friends think that I’m crazy
When I tell them we’re fading
I can’t help how I’m feeling, baby
It’s not the same, never used to be this way

Ah-ooh
We’ve both been a mess
Ah-ooh
But nevertheless

Everybody’s staring like I got two heads
Telling me our story’s not supposed to end
We pretend we’re perfect, but it ain’t the truth
‘Cause I’ve been lying next to you

And everybody’s staring like I got two heads
Telling me our story’s not supposed to end
We pretend we’re perfect
We pretend we’re trying fate
Lying next to you
