"Believe Me, I'm Lying" as written by Geoffrey Rockwell, Austin N Bello,...
Hey...
You always seem to catch me when I'm lying
About the stupidest of things
OK...
Stand there while I stab you in the back
With the words I never never ever should have taken this so far

[Chorus: x2]
Go ahead and buy yourself a drink
Cause you know you're deserving of it
Go ahead and cry yourself to sleep
And think how you hate me so bad

[x4]
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)

I could write about a thousand songs to impress you
But I wouldn't want to do that
I could make you feel the queen of the world but I won't
Cause you're full of imperfections
This is coming from a third perspective
All I'm saying is you need to be selective
This is coming from a gentleman
With your needs in mind, I've got his on the side.
(Oh)

[Chorus: x2]

[x4]
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)

Go ahead and buy yourself a drink
Cause you know you're deserving of it
Go ahead and cry yourself to sleep

[Chorus: x2]

    General Commentat the part where you said:

    "I can make you feel a greater world but I won’t.
    Cause you’re a bullet of perfection"

    i actually think it's:

    "I can make you feel like the queen of the world, but i won't.
    'Cause you're full of imperfections."


    but i'm not positive. that's what it sounds like to me.

    General Comment"All day you should need to be selective
    This is coming from a gentleman
    But your needs all matter, his on the sidelines"

    it should be...
    "all i'm saying is you need to be selective.
    this is coming from a gentleman,
    with your needs in mind i've got his on the sideline."

    General Commentthese were obviously from the acoustic demo so meow?

    Hey
    You always seem to catch me when I’m lying
    about the stupidest of things
    Okay
    Sit around I’ll stab you in the back
    the words "I never never should have taken this so far"

    Go ahead and buy yourself a drink
    Cause you know you’re deserving of it
    Go ahead and cry yourself to sleep
    And think how you hate me so bad.

    Go ahead and buy yourself a drink
    Cause you know you’re deserving of it
    Go ahead and cry yourself to sleep
    And think how you hate me so bad.

    I can write about a thousand songs to impress you.
    But I wouldn’t want to do that.
    I can make you feel like the queen of the world, but i won't.
    'Cause you're full of imperfections.
    This is coming from a third perspective.
    all i'm saying is you need to be selective.
    this is coming from a gentleman,
    with your needs in mind i've got his on the sideline.

    Marc: “hey girl what’s up?
    uh just working on some music.
    Yeah. Hey yeah it’s cool.
    Hey can I call you right back?
    alright. Bye.”

    Go ahead and buy yourself a drink
    Cause you know you’re deserving of it
    Go ahead and cry yourself to sleep
    And think how you hate me so bad.

    General Commentall these comments, and none of them discuss the meaning. well, here's what i think.

    it seems to be about a guy who knows a girl who's in a relationship that's not so hot, and he wants her, and they've maybe even sort of been together, while she's still with her boyfriend.
    but he wants her to leave her boyfriend, and she doesn't want to, and she gets angry at him when he suggests this.
    the beginning part,
    Hey
    You always seem to catch me when I’m lying
    about the stupidest of things
    Okay
    Sit around I’ll stab you in the back
    the words "I never never should have taken this so far"
    seems to be referring to how he thinks he never should have gotten involved with her at all, but the lies, maybe are that he's not going to tell anyone, etc; hence the "stupidest things."

    that's just what i think, hopefully you could pull something that makes sense out of that. lol.
