Lies
Cassandra Wilson Lyrics


Like a fool, I believed in your lies
Those words behind your eyes
You walked into something
Sweet and smoothest and warm
You crawled under my skin

You would say that it's all in my mind
You'd never be unkind
Just like a snake wrapped around a heart of gold
You stole my every word

Living inside your world makes me cry
An oceanful of tears
Living inside your love is a lie
Living inside your love is a lie
Lie
Living, living, living, living inside your love.

Living inside your world makes me cry
An oceanful of tears
Living inside your love is a lie
Like a fool, I believed in your lies
Those words behind your eyes
You walked into something
Sweet and smoothest and warm
You crawled under my skin

Like a fool, I believed in your lies

Worked a gig w/ Cassandra, in Hartford, circa 1981, and we were very impressed, and thought she was extraordinary, and we're so happy she made it big. The experience was unforgettable, ....like her. The first song she sang was Duke's "In a Mellow Tone" and she did a unique scat chorus that I used in a jazz vocal class at Berklee later. Thank you for this wonderful post.

I bought this cd today. Musicians are top notch, and her voice makes my bones vibrate. One of the most beautiful record I own.

I was wondering how she was going to interpret Billie, but it works!! Ms Wilson uses some complex transposition to achieve that unique sound...'Traveling Miles' remains her magnum opus.

When real royalty walks into a room they don’t have to be announced. You already know who they are. Beyond royalty Cassandra is the goddess Oshun!!

She expresses of the pitch and melody of brown brush colored with autumn hues slowly moving towards its desired destiny. She's truly a jewel of African artistry. BEAUTIFUL SISTA SING
