How I Know You Lie

I can see the blemishes in your eyes
The brown-ish hazel streak
I can see your dilating pupils
But most of all
I can see the way you lie to me

You don't grab me first
Just to hug me in the morning
You don't want to touch
It's kind of like
I'm the only one wanting

You don't stare at me
If i'm not looking first
But most of all
You do not grab my face
And tell me
You are in love for sure.
