about

This song has a gorgeously sweet melody, and yet a somewhat dark and poignant lyric by New York songwriter Francesca Blumenthal. People get drawn into the story and Reg Schwager's beautiful playing is simply divine.

lyrics

I believe in star signs
and I believe in film romances
I believe in in fantasy
and I believe with just one glance he's crazy for my eyes
'cause I believe the lies of handsome men

I believe in witchcraft
and I believe in Cinderella
I believe in gypsies
and I believe I cast a spell that sends him to the skies
'cause I believe the lies of handsome men

Somewhere in the corner of my mind
I'm not a fool, completely blind
But even though he's hooked me on his line
I find the pleasures been mine

I believe in love songs,
they seem to know just what I'm feeling
I believe in Prince Charming
I never guess he's double dealing
How my spirits rise
Believing in the lies of handsome men

Somehwere in a dark and quiet place
The truth and I come face to face
And even if His Highness disappears
I keep some stunning souvenirs

So I believe in heros
and I expect my happy ending
Wishing on some rainbow
I pretend he's not pretending
Someday I'll get wise
But for now I need the lies of handsome men
