You can tell me everything is perfect
Pretend breaking up with him felt right
No sign of reminiscing
Somehow you're not convincing
Why even try to hide it inside?

You say you're over him, tell me that you're fine
You know it doesn't work
Even when you smile, I don't believe you
You're not a very good liar

Said it doesn't hurt, that you never cry
You can tell yourself, go ahead deny
You know it's not true
You're not a very good liar

Oh, oh, oh, oooh
Oh, oh, oh, oooh
Oh, oh, oh, oooh
Not a very good liar

Inside you're falling apart but you keep it together
Telltale signs,looks like you've been crying all night?
It's for the best,you keep on saying
Cause something better is out there waiting
But eyes don't lie, and I see it every time

You tell me that you're fine
You know it doesn't work even when you smile
I don't believe you
You're not a very good liar

Said it doesn't hurt, that you never cry
You can tell yourself, go ahead deny
You know it's not true
You're not a very good liar

Oh, oh, oh, oooh
Oh, oh, oh, oooh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oooh
Not a very good liar

Maybe it hurts too much to talk about
But you don't say nothing at all, no
But if you ever need someone to talk to
Then you know who to call
oh, yeah yeah yeah

Said it doesn't hurt, that you never cry
You can tell yourself, go ahead deny
You know it's not true
You're not a very good liar

Oh, oh, oh, oooh
Oh, oh, oh, oooh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oooh
Not a very good liar
