You Could Lie To Me

Here is a Mark Heard song that seems to have some relevance to our times. From Stop the Dominoes:

You Could Lie To Me

You could lie to me with a ring of truth
And I would not understand
You could lead me on to the pits of Hell
I'm a less-than-perfect man

Oh - Who's gonna warn me
Oh - How can I tell
Oh - It's so easy
Believing the lies you tell

You could take my heart, turn it into stone
And I might not even know
You could season me until my feelings are gone
And the pain is felt no more

Oh - Who's gonna warn me
Oh - How can I tell
Oh - It's so easy
Believing the lies you tell

I do not see the casualties
I don't know what might have been
You're making friends out of my enemies
And enemies of my friends

Oh - Who's gonna warn me
Oh - How can I tell
Oh - It's so easy
Believing the lies you tell
