  • It sounds like a lie when you say it
    Sounds like a lie 'cause it is
    It don't matter how you try to play it
    It don't matter which way it spins
    It ain't rocket science, baby
    It ain't arithmetic

    When you love someone
    When you really love someone
    You don't get drunk at a bar, jump in the car
    Roll in the dark and go to far with someone
    When you love someone

    Well, I'm coming down off a promise
    You're coming down off a buzz
    Whether it's love or it's whiskey
    Well, I guess we've both sobered up
    Let's just go ahead and call this thing what it was

    'Cause when you love someone
    When you really love someone
    You don't get drunk at a bar, jump in the car
    Roll in the dark and go to far with someone
    When you love someone

    Oh, don't wanna hear you're sorry
    Oh, baby, don't waste your breath
    'Cause it sounds like a lie when you say it
    It sounds like a lie cause it is

    When you love someone
    When you really love someone
    You don't get drunk at a bar, jump in the car
    Roll in the dark
    When you love someone
    If you really love someone
    You don't get drunk at a bar, jump in the car
    Roll in the dark and go to far with someone
    Just break my heart with someone
    When you love someone
    When you love someone Writer/s: ERIC BLAIR DALY, HILLARY LEE LINDSEY, SEAN MCCONNELL, SIDNIE TIPTON
