  • If I could turn the page
    In time then I'd rearrange
    Just a day or two
    Close my, close my, close my eyes

    But I couldn't find a way
    So I'll settle for one day
    To believe in you
    Tell me, tell me , tell me lies

    Tell me lies
    Tell me sweet little lies
    (Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
    Oh, no, no you can't disguise
    (You can't disguise, no you can't disguise)
    Tell me lies
    Tell me sweet little lies

    Although I'm not making plans
    I hope that you understand
    There's a reason why
    Close your, close your, close your eyes

    No more broken hearts
    We're better off apart
    Let's give it a try
    Tell me, tell me, tell me lies

    Tell me lies
    Tell me sweet little lies
    (Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
    Oh, no, no you can't disguise
    (You can't disguise, no you can't disguise)
    Tell me lies
    Tell me sweet little lies

    If I could turn the page
    In time then I'd rearrange
    Just a day or two
    Close my, close my, close my eyes

    But I couldn't find a way
    So I'll settle for one day
    To believe in you
    Tell me, tell me, tell me lies

    Tell me lies
    Tell me sweet little lies
    (Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
    Oh, no, no you can't disguise
    (You can't disguise, no you can't disguise)

    Tell me lies
    Tell me sweet little lies
    (Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
    Oh, no, no you can't disguise
    (You can't disguise, no you can't disguise)
    Tell me lies
    Tell me sweet little lies
    (Tell me, tell me lies)Writer/s: Christine Mcvie, Eddy Quintela Mendonca

  • Esskayess from Dallas, TxPerfect song to play while watching political gatherings.
  • Jade from Washington D.c., DcAm I the only one who thinks that this song has the perfect beat for a jukebox musical?
  • Tony from Chicago, Ilgreat breakup song! I think she wrote it about dennis wilson
  • Constance from Dallas, TxGreat song! I can relate to this song. Being in love with someone who is a liar. You know their lying but you love them so you just play alone(eventually playing yourself)
  • Christine from Worcester, Mathe video for 'everywhere' has none of the band mates, its all a hired cast, and the video for family man is pretty much just a reworked version of seven wonders. and to stevie, you are correct, lidnsey left in 88, not 87, without him TITN would have not been made, it started out as a lindsey solo album. Warner Brothers forced him to go back to FM [same situation would happen later in 2003], so Big Love, Family Man, TITN, Caroline, and i think one other song on the album, wera all just lindsey songs for his solo album, therefore there is no way this song is about lindsey leaving fleetwood mac.
  • Stevie from Bradford, Englandto Chris in Downers Grove: it can't be about him leaving the band. Buckingham didn't play to leave the band until after Tango in the Night was recorded and the first 3 singles (Seven Wonders, Big Love, Little Lies) were released - thats why lindsey was never in the video for Familly Man, Everywhere or Isn't It Midnight. He left just before the Tango in the Night tour at the begining of 1988. SO HA!
  • Chris from Downers Grove, IlSome claim this song is about fellow bandmate, Lindsey Buckingham, and his decision to leave Fleetwood Mac.
  • AnonymousChristine McVie claims that it is not about John McVie.
