Truth is a Lie

Album: Forever in a Day (2009)
  • Hey
    Oh oh
    Oh

    Forget about the
    Picture I painted in your head of a beautiful you and me
    You might as well forget about the
    Way you use me, abuse me thought we really were a family (yeah)

    You knew I was weak for love
    So you wrote me love letters
    Sweeter than a peach
    You relax me like a beach
    I got skies so deep
    I've been getting cold feet

    (Even the truth is a lie)
    The truth is, love can be so ruthless
    You is so (bad) ya know ya so (bad)
    (But you wouldn't be the baddest I've ever had)

    Even the truth is a lie
    We can never stay together
    We've tried too many times
    The truth, the, the, the truth
    Maybe I'm wrong and it's all in my mind
    Feels like I'm dreamin' of happier days with you
    Even the truth is a lie
    The truth, the, the, the truth,
    The, the, the truth, the, the, the truth

    I just, just as well? forget about the
    Arguing, fussing, fighting, cops beating down my front door
    Girl it ain't worth it over you
    Her body hid my control over me mistaken lust for love
    I finally had enough of your bull, what you trying to pull
    Mami
    Don't try me
    You wont find me

    You knew I was weak for love
    So you wrote me love letters
    Sweeter than a peach
    You relax me like a beach (shawty)
    I got skies so deep (shawty)
    I've been gettin cold feet

    (Even the truth is a lie)
    The truth is, love can be so ruthless
    You is so (bad) ya know ya so (bad)
    (But you wouldn't be the baddest I've ever had)

    Even the truth is a lie
    We can never stay together
    We've tried too many times
    The truth, the, the, the truth
    Maybe I'm wrong and it's all in my mind
    Feels like I'm dreamin' of happier days with you
    Even the truth is a lie
    The truth, the, the, the truth,
    The, the, the truth, the, the, the truth'

    So we never say never, girl
    Promise I'm never getting back with you
    After all the shit you put me through
    Had to learn, let to burn, I was firm with my love
    For it never was enough (whoa oh oh)
    Had to sue for the number, my new number one curse
    You look flyier than every girl, no I didn't st-st-stutter

    Even the truth is a lie
    Truth is a lie
    The truth is a lie
    The truth is a lie

    Everything ya show me
    And everything ya told me was a lie
    Why did ya do me this way
    I said it hurts so bad
    I cried at night
    Wooahhhawooo
    Said I cried at night
    Baby the truth was a lie
