Bad Liar

Album: Rare (2017)
Charted: 21 20
  • I was walking down the street the other day
    Tryna distract myself
    But then I see your face
    Oh wait, that's someone else
    Ohh, tryna play it coy
    Tryna make it disappear
    But just like the battle of Troy
    There's nothing subtle here
    In my room there's a king size space
    Bigger than it used to be
    If you want you can rent that place
    Call me an amenity
    Even if it's in my dreams

    Ooh you're taking up a fraction of my mind
    Ooh every time I watch you serpentine

    Oh I'm tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    Oh tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    Not to think about you
    No, no, no, no
    Not to think about you
    No, no, no, no
    Oh I'm tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    Oh tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    Not to give in to you
    No, no, no, no
    Not to give in to you

    With my feelings on fire
    Guess I'm a bad liar

    I see how your attention builds
    It's like looking in a mirror
    Your touch like a happy pill
    But still all we do is fear
    What could possibly happen next?
    Can we focus on the love?
    Paint my kiss across your chest
    If you're the art, I'll be the brush

    Ooh you're taking up a fraction of my mind
    Ooh every time I watch you serpentine

    Oh I'm tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    Oh tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    Not to think about you
    No, no, no, no
    Not to think about you
    No, no, no, no
    Oh I'm tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    Oh tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    Not to give in to you
    No, no, no, no
    Not to give in to you

    All of my feelings on fire
    Guess I'm a bad liar

    And oh baby let's make reality, actuality, a reality
    Oh baby let's make reality, actuality, a reality

    Oh, oh, I'm tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    Oh tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    Not to think about you
    No, no, no, no
    Not to think about you
    No, no, no, no
    Oh I'm tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    Oh tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
    Not to give in to you
    No, no, no, no
    Not to give in to you

    With my feelings on fire
