Talking:
How u gon do that to me... ? (siiigh)
I can't believe this...

Verse 1:
I wish I never ever got drunk that nite
Made me foolish enough to come to ur crib
Walked up the stairs and then I turned on the lights
Couldn't even speak because it happened so quick
I wish I never saw ur punk ass that nite
You always seem to calm me down with ur lies
Even though I know better I try and I try
But u always have the perfect alibi

Chorus:
If a lie gon get me thru
I rather not know the truth
If the truth gon make me cry
I rather just live a lie (x2)

Verse 2:
I wish I never ever saw u that nite
Rite now I'd still be thinkin we were ok
I called u just before I got on my flight
I say 'I love u', And u tell me the same
If I could go back in time
I never woulda called ur phone up
Never woulda dialed ur number
Never woulda gotten that drunk
If I could go back in time
I never woulda gotten that tore
Never woulda asked for one more
Never woulda walked thru ur door

Chorus:
If a lie gon get me thru
I rather not know the truth
If the truth gon make me cry
I rather just live a lie (x2)

Verse 3:
Easier to live
Like u don't see nuttin
Even tho it ain't rite
Harder to turn over in ur bed and he ain't by ur side
I think if I didn't walk in that nite
And see u with my own eyes
I would still be livin a lie

Talking:
Just gotta know
Whatever u do
It's gon come back to u
I cant' believe this...

Chorus:
If a lie gon get me thru
I rather not know the truth
If the truth gon make me cry
I rather just live a lie
