"Little Lies" as written by Christine Mcvie and Eddy Quintela Mendonca....
If I could turn the page
In time then I'd rearrange
Just a day or two
Close my, close my, close my eyes

But I couldn't find a way
So I'll settle for one day
To believe in you
Tell me, tell me , tell me lies

Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
Oh, no, no you can't disguise
(You can't disguise, no you can't disguise)
Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies

Although I'm not making plans
I hope that you understand
There's a reason why
Close your, close your, close your eyes

No more broken hearts
We're better off apart
Let's give it a try
Tell me, tell me, tell me lies

Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
Oh, no, no you can't disguise
(You can't disguise, no you can't disguise)
Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies

If I could turn the page
In time then I'd rearrange
Just a day or two
Close my, close my, close my eyes

But I couldn't find a way
So I'll settle for one day
To believe in you
Tell me, tell me, tell me lies

Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
Oh, no, no you can't disguise
(You can't disguise, no you can't diguise)

Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
Oh, no, no you can't disguise
(You can't disguise, no you can't disguise)
Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(Tell me, tell me lies)

    Song MeaningIf anyone has ever suffered from unrequited love, they would understand the meaning of this song. Sometimes there is no balance in a love relationship. Someone leaves to be with someone new, leaving behind a broken heart.

    The broken hearted's greatest desire is to hear the sweet little lie, "I love you,"
    coming from the others lips.

    Without that sweet little lie, he/she is forever in limbo, loving someone who does not, will not, and cannot love them back.

    Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies.

    General Commentwhat in the world? .."i wish stevie nicks was my mom" ?!
    such a character you are :D.

    i'm in love with fleetwood mac and especially their beautiful gypsy-dancing woman so of course i like this song. that and the idea that she wants so bad for the relationship to be something better than it is expresses everybody's eventual desire for their own relationship. love it. <3

    General CommentYeah aren't Stevie Nicks' only contributions "Tell me lies" and "You can't diguise" in the chorus?

    So I guess this song as about a girl that has to break up with a guy, but just doesn't want to. So she just wants her man to tell her lies to convince her to stay, which goes against her rationality.

    General CommentOkay, well I'm listening to the Alex Megane version of this song. It goes without saying what the song's about.
