Book Of Liars

This song is by Steely Dan and appears on the live album Alive In America (1995).

Bye and bye girl
We'll get over
Things we've done and the things we've said
But not just now girl
When I can't remember
Exactly what it was we thought we had
You know I waited so long girl and I came so far
To see that you're not always who you say you are
And there's a star in the book of liars by your name
And there's a star in the book of liars by your name

Santa Claus came home
Late last night
Drunk on Christmas wine
Fell down hard
Out in the driveway
And hung his bag out on the laundry line
You know he's got a cobra gunship for his golden boy
And there's a Hello Kitty for his pride and joy
And a silver star in the book of liars by your name
They hung a star in the book of liars by your name

Time exploding
The long time passing
Electrons dancing in the frozen crystal dawn
Here's one left stranded
At the zero crossing
With the whole of his half-life left to carry on
But if the world looks larger than it looks today
And if my bad luck ever blows me back this way
Then I'll just look in my book of liars for your name
Well you know I'm just gonna look in the book of liars for your name.
