The Ball Never Lies (So Why Do You?)

I should probably let Billy explain what he was thinking when he wrote the lyrics to Kinda Good’s 3rd song, but for me, it went like this:

Billy (via text): The ball never lies. So why do you?
Dan (via text): What the…AWEsome
Dan (via phone): Dude, what the heck does that even mean?
Billy (via phone): I don’t know. Just some lyrics I was thinking of.
Dan (via phone): Ah. Well let’s write a song. I’ll write some music, you finish the lyrics.

3 Months later…We have a song:

The Ball Never Lies (Download it!)
by Billy Allen & Dan Madden

When I was young my father told me, son this world is cruel
Don’t count on nothing not even your heart, it’ll trick you like a fool
I haven’t learned much in all my years but one thing I advise
You can’t trust women
But the ball never lies
At sixteen I fell in love twice, the second time to you
The first was when I made JV and volleyball was new
I’d dream of spiking and more spiking until sunrise
And in the morning I’d wake up believing
That the ball never lies
The ball never lies, so why do you?
(Liar Liar Pants on Fire)
The ball didn’t lie, so now we’re through.

I’ve played open gyms, and I’ve played closed gyms, it’s always the same
Every bad call, leads to a missed serve, it’s just a rule of the game
As for love, it never plays fair, when justice turns her eyes
The only thing that I count on
Is that the ball never lies
She told me a story, she made a promise, but all the while I knew
Fairy tales and team cheers never do come true
B-E–A-G-G–R-E-S-S-I-V-E, this my final goodbye
Tomorrow I’ll be back on the court
Trusting the ball to never lie

The ball never lies, so why do you?
(Liar Liar Pants on Fire)
The ball didn’t lie, so now we’re through.

oh no oh no
oh yes oh yes

you’re lying to yourself, etc

  • Love the type of humor you guys have. Definitely unique to its own style. I, for one, appreciate and enjoy the work you guys put into creating and posting new material, as well as others do, I’m sure. Oh, and volleyball is awesome!

    -The ball never lies, so why do you?

  • Oh, I’ve wondered this. – How and When and Who decided to start posting humorous volleyball-related content? Be sure to pat on the back all who are responsible for that decision.

  • You need to sell this song on iTunes. I would love an MP3 of this….
