Janna Audey: Listen

Lies

(Janna Audey/Rob Santos)
Janna Audey/Rob Santos

Rob and I started recording music together in the early 90s.  Back then, we used a 4-track Tascam, a midi keyboard, live guitar and live vocals, recorded and mixed in his Rosslyn apartment.  Those were the days our friendship developed.  This song was written before we were a couple.  It was written about another musician I dated many years before.  Rob's outro solo is magical.   Enjoy!

I think I've been here before
I don't know the time or the place or much else anymore
I don't know who I am, or even who I wanna be
 
I don't know which way to turn
Can't you just tell me, or lead me,
But don't make it burn
Cause I can't handle the pain,
It still hurts sometimes, oh baby...
These scars are so deep.
 
Looking into your eyes
Reminds me of times of the past,
And times that I've cried
For what I've lost, and what will never be.
 
I feel so empty inside
My heart's so lifeless, my mind's weak,
I cannot disguise, no I cannot disguise
The bitter memories, I don't know,
I don't want to hear
 
 
More of your lies
You took my heart, my soul, my mind,
All your lies,
You told me you loved me, then loved someone else
All your lies,
And all I got from you was a photograph,
And all of your lies,
You borrowed, you cheated, but you never gave,
All your lies
You turned me into someone you didn't want
All your lies,
You took my heart, my soul then left me with
All of your lies...
