  • You whispered that you were getting tired,
    Got a look in your eye,
    Looks a lot like goodbye.
    Hold on to your secrets tonight.
    Don't want to know I'm ok with this silence
    It's truth that I don't want to hear

    You're hiding regret in your smile
    There's a storm in your eyes I've seen coming for awhile
    Hang on to the past tense tonight
    Don't say a word,
    I'm ok with the quiet.
    The truth is gonna change everything.

    So lie to me and tell me that it's gonna be alright
    So lie to me and tell me that we'll make it through the night
    I don't mind if you wait before you tear me apart,
    Look me in the eye,
    And lie, lie, lie.

    Lie, lie, lie.

    I know that there's no turning back.
    If we put too much light on this we'll see through all the cracks.
    Let's stay in the dark one more night.
    Don't want to know I'm ok with the silence.
    It's truth that I don't want to hear.

    So lie to me and tell me that it's gonna be alright
    So lie to me and tell me that we'll make it through the night
    I don't mind if you wait before you tear me apart,
    Look me in the eye,
    And lie, lie, lie.

    Don't want to believe in this ending
    Let the cameras roll on,
    Keep pretending
    Tomorrow's all wrong if you walk away
    Just stay

    So lie to me and tell me that it's gonna be alright
    So lie to me and tell me that we'll make it through the night
    I don't mind if you wait before you tear me apart,
    Look me in the eye,
    And lie, lie, lie.

    So lie to me and tell me that we're gonna be ok
    So lie to me and tell me that we'll make it through the day
    I don't mind if you wait before you tear me apart
    Look me in the eye,
    And lie, lie, lie. Writer/s: ZAC MALOY, DAVID COOK, ESPEN LIND, AMUND BJORKLUND
