(Verse)
She grew up without a father
Never knew how to love a man
She's addicted to breaking hearts and moving on
So I never really stood a chance
And the sparkle in herr eyes
They shine so flawless I'm amazed
Blinded by an angel's face
It's the sweetest poison
One kiss and now you got the venom in your veins
Believing everything her lips say

(Chorus)
Pretty girls lie
Lipstick and a smile
Makes you want to believe
But pretty girls hide
Pain so deep inside
She can't even see
Pretty girls lie
Pretty girls lie

(Verse)
Got you walking through a maze, yeah
Eyes closed tryin' to find your way
Got your arms reached out
Hoping she gon' make a sound
But she don't wanna be found
But she'll tell you come anyway
And you'll know the difference
From the real or the fake
Devil in the trust, but an angel in the face
Never ever yours but it's only for the day
Is it real when you calling my name

(Chorus)
Pretty girls lie
Lipstick and a smile
Makes you want to believe
But pretty girls hide
Pain so deep inside
She can't even see
Pretty girls lie

(Verse)
I want to give the benefit of the of the doubt
The best in her I wanna help bring it out
I know something's missing inside
If you let me I can show proof
Girl there ain't no running from the truth
She says I'll be there
Girl don't just tell me what I wanna hear

(Chorus)
Pretty girls lie
Lipstick and a smile
Makes you want to believe
But pretty girls hide
Pain so deep inside
She can't even see
Pretty girls lie

(Outro)
Such a pretty face and
She can't find her way
Such a beautiful girl
Lost in the world
Can't trust what she says
After so many break-ups and make-ups in life
Could've been making love and end up in a fight
Ooh, tell me why
Pretty girls lie

    Exactly what he said ... If u don't already know the love of a man from the beginning then how would u recognise when a man shows u to take care of is woman's nature yet its mans principle on life so ... In general he's saying im here for u but u just don't see it... The poetic hustler.. Jasonwells

    I think that trey songz is mostly singing about his experiences with attractive girls. He's singing about how he finds that they all lie, but not without reason; they lie because they've been hurt very badly but can hide it well behind a beautiful smile. He feels that they all grew up without fathers & therefore never developed the ability to trust or care for men. They take their pain out on the men they date by gaining their trust & love, & basically wrapping them around her finger (sweet poison in her kiss, now he has her venom in his veins). But she ends up breaking their hearts and moving on to the next guy. He wants to give her the benefit of the doubt and bring out the best in her but he fears that she'll just tell him what he wants to hear. The untrustworthy pretty girl has lost her way after all the break-ups & make-ups. She had opportunities to really be in a loving relationship but she just always ended up fighting.
