The Hand Is Quicker

This song is by Aloe Blacc and appears on the US and UK Limited edition of Lift Your Spirit (2013).

The hand is quicker than the eye
And sometimes the truth ain't no better than the lie

I'm gon' tell you a story about how things changed around
One day you on top of the world and the next day you're on the ground
I was the one that all of the ladies wanted to see
And I was the one all the fellas wanted to be
(The bigger they come then the harder they fall when they're falling down)
(The bigger they come then the harder they fall when they're falling down)

The hand is quicker than the eye
And sometimes the truth ain't no better than the lie

But the hand is quicker than the eye
Sometimes the truth ain't no better than the lie

Are you waiting for something better
You think something gonna come your way
You never was gonna stick around
You never meant to stay
I see you looking and you keep on staring at the front door
But I hope you find what you're looking for
(The bigger they come then the harder they fall when they're falling down)
(The bigger they come then the harder they fall when they're falling down)

The hand is quicker than the eye
The truth ain't no better than the lie

I thought you were my lover
I thought you were my friend
How dare you find a lover
Now I'm alone again
You used to call me sweetheart
You used to hold my head
You'll get what's coming to you
I'll get my sweet revenge
Sometimes you'll find the situation ain't exactly what is meant to be
You can't always believe in what you hear and everything that you see
Keep your dear friends close and your enemies even closer
Because not everything is gonna turn how you figuring that it's supposed to

The hand is quicker than the eye
The truth ain't no better than the lie
