Lie To Me

from by Cello Figaro



If I had a dollar for every lie I was told
and I could pay the debt for every lie that I spoke
when them collection agents start paging my phone
I'd look at my bank account and still say I was broke
and if I learned something its that I learnd nothing
at all tryna ball for these broads like I'm stuntin
oh lord, at least i'm honest about my dishonesty
when I was just tryna be what ppl wanted from me
when i was kid they put me up in the pulpit
foolish, i was preaching that bull shit
fast forward to college now i'm preaching that cool shit
when honestly, i really haven't been cool since
who can remember their first lie
whether you was the one to tell it or the one it was told to
I just know the first always felt like a bold move
but ever since then its like i lie cuz I'm 'sposed to.


tell me i'm awesome, tell me i'm the shit girl
tell me anything you want, get you anything you want
I been lying to myself for so long
that I aint got the write to tell you you're wrong
so tell me a lie, make it feel good
tell me a lie, make it real good
tell me a lie, make me feel good
tell me a lie. a lie, a lie, a lie

if you love me stroke my ego, say i'm regal
i'll treat you equal. if you wanna be a star I'll never kill your dream
and stop your shine before you reach the sky
I'll just catch you when you fall and say at least you tried
they tell us honesty is what we're missing
but truth be told we'd be living a lie
we just insisted on existing, you and I
would be dishonest if we go against our primal nature
we won't survive. cutting ties with a life we aint suited for
the truth behind the lies we tell is what i find beautiful
as longs our intentions our pure could you blame us
I know that it's haneous, we don't need a savior..the truth
could save us. i repent for my sins to Lord make amends, Amen
and then I find myself lying again thru these pens, make amends.
a lie is where imagination often begins, the truth from within
