I Lied

Album: The Pinkprint (2014)
  • Oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh
    I lied, I lied, I lied
    To keep you from breaking my heart

    Even though I said I didn't love you
    I lied, I lied
    Even though I said I didn't need you
    I lied, I lied
    To keep you from breaking my heart, ooh
    To keep you from breaking my heart, ooh

    Even though I said don't touch me
    I lied, I lied
    I can't fall for you, can't give my all to you
    Can't let you think that Imma let the game stall for you
    Gotta protect me you gotta sweat me
    You said you thought you was ready and I said let's see
    But I ain't mean that, I need some fucking proof
    'Cause what happens if I fall in love then you cut me loose
    You just a heart breaker won't let you break mine
    'Cause I'll be smashing windows and cutting them break lines

    I lied
    'Cause who knew that if I just let myself go with you
    Who knows, who knows, so I lied
    To keep you from breaking my heart, ooh
    To keep you from breaking my heart, ooh

    Even though I said 'fuck you'
    I lied, I lied

    I thought eventually you would let me go
    That was my insecurities and my ego
    Missed my jump shot missed my free throw
    Miss the way we kiss miss the d o
    Man it was good while it lasted
    That shit wasn't real it was magic
    If it was a record it would have been classic
    But fuck you though, orgasmic

    I guess this is what I gotta do to keep me from falling
    Stalling the truth, who knew what you'd
    Do if I let you in
    My mama ain't raised no fool, I
    I am not your usual typical type
    Who would protect me if I never hide?
    Falling so fast I am afraid of you, so I lied

    I lied, I lied
    To keep you from breaking my heart, ooh
    To keep you from breaking my heart, ooh oh
    I lied
    Ooh baby
    Ooh

    'Cause who knew that if I just let myself go with you Writer/s: Ester Dean, Onika Tanya Maraj, Michael Len Ii Williams, Marcus Anthony Bell
