One Direction – Tell Me A Lie lyrics

[Liam]
Can't ever get it right,
No matter how hard I try,
And I've tried.

[Zayn]
Well I put up a good fight,
But your words cut like knives,
And I'm tired.

[Zayn]
As you break my heart again this time,

[All]
Tell me I'm a screwed up mess,
That I never listen, listen,
Tell me you don't want my kiss,
That you need your distance, distance,
Tell me anything, but don't you say he's what you're missing, baby,
If he's the reason that you're leaving me tonight,
Spare me what you think and
Tell me a lie!

[Liam]
Well you're the charming type,
That little twinkle in your eye,
Gets me every time.

[Harry]
And well there must've been a time,
I was a reason for that smile,
So keep in mind,

[Liam]
As you take what's left of you and I,

[All]
Tell me I'm a screwed up mess,
That I never listen, listen,
Tell me you don't want my kiss,
That you need your distance, distance,
Tell me anything, but don't you say he's what you're missing, baby,
If he's the reason that you're leaving me tonight,
Spare me what you think and
Tell me a lie!

[Zayn]
Tell me a lie!
Tell me a lie!

[All]Tell me I'm a screwed up mess,
That I never listen, listen,
Tell me you don't want my kiss,
That you need your distance, distance,
Tell me anything, but don't you say he's what you're missing, baby,
If he's the reason that you're leaving me tonight.
Spare me what you think and
Tell me a lie!

    He probably knows that his girlfriend is cheating on him, but doesn't want her to say that the reason they're breaking up is because of someone else. He would rather be told a lie. I think! Lol. Hehe, I love this song. My friend brief up with her boyfriend and sang: "you are a screwed up mess,/you never listen, listen,/i don't want your kiss,/and i need my distance, distance. "
    I was laughing so hard, but felt so bad!
