  • Lying I still can't find the truth.
    So I spin another line on you
    You can't blame a fella for trying
    I'm hoping you eat my every word
    Doesn't it taste so good?
    But deep inside I'm dying

    Oh! I wanna word with you
    If there's never a perfect time
    It's time for another white lie

    White lies just another white lie
    I did it to get close to you
    And I will tell a million more
    White lies just another white lie
    I do it to get close to you
    And I will tell a million more white lies

    One day I know you'll understand
    That I didn't really have much choice
    I just had to hide it
    Sometimes good men do bad things
    Just as bad men can do good
    Tell me which way you like it

    Oh! I wanna word with you
    There's never a perfect time
    However much I try
    Oh! Why don't you sit yourself down?
    Cos we gotta talk this through
    It's time for another white lie

    White lies just a little white lie
    I did it to get close to you
    And I will tell a million more
    White lies just a little white lie
    I do it to get close to you
    And I will tell a million more white lies

    Oh-oh oh-oh
    I was just playing girl I was just playing by your rules
    Oh-oh oh-oh
    Just another white lie and I'll tell a million more
