Hey white liar
The truth comes out a little at a time
And it spreads just like a fire
Slips off of your tongue like turpentine
And I don't know why
White liar

You better be careful what you do
I wouldn't wanna be in your shoes
If they ever found you out
You better be careful what you say
It never really added up any way
I got friends in this town

Hey white liar
The truth comes out a little at a time
And it spreads just like a fire
Slips off of your tongue like turpentine
And I don't know why
White liar

You said you went out to a bar
And walked some lady to her car
But your face has more to tell
Cuz my cousin saw you on the street
With a red head named Bernice
Turns out you donґt lie too well

Hey white liar
The truth comes out a little at a time
And it spreads just like a fire
Slips off of your tongue like turpentine
And I don't know why
White liar

Here's a bombshell just for you
Turns out I've been lying too

Yeah I'm a white liar
The truth comes out a little at a time
And it spreads just like a fire
Slips off of my tongue like turpentine
And I don't know why
White liar

    To me means that carma is a bench and if you dont want to be cheated on then YOU dont be goin around cheatin. Cuz the only one that your cheating is yourself cause most likely the girl your cheating on is the best girl you have ever had!!! ALL GUYS SHOULD WATCH THIS VIDEO AND LISTEN TO THE SONG CAUSE ALL SHE DOES IS SPEAK THE TRUTH!!! GUYS SHOULD NEVER LIE CAUSE WE AREN'T STUPID WE WILL FIND OUT EVENTUALLY!!!

    This song is about a cheating guy who learns he is being cheated on. Let this be a lesson to guys, we women are smarter than yal know and will ever be. We know you better than you know yourself. Beware of how you treat your woman cause they know your soft spots and your weaknesses.

    This song reminds me of my last relationship, my bf at the time ended up cheatin on me like evry other girl he's dated...all friends told me no dont date him, ur to good for him. Hes dosent have the best repution in the school either, when my teacher found out i was dating him he said, "Ooooh Lauren's dating a bad boy!" but i was stupid enough not to listen and in the end i ended up getting my heart broken! So for alll you guys out there NEVER cheat on ur gf cause like me she WILLL find out and break up with ur lousy buttt!
