"The Biggest Lie" as written by Mat Sinner and Tom Naumann....
I told a lie, God, I told the biggest lie
Made you come over to drive him home that night
While we were getting drunk and he was getting high
And I lied and said I loved you while I touched her thighs

And it wasn't true, baby, it was far from true
When you went out of town, and I said that I missed you
I am so ashamed, what an awful thing to do
But as soon as you were gone, I made my move

And I know someday you'll find out what went down
Can't keep a secret in this town
Sooner or later word gets around, around, around

I let you go, yeah, I know, I let you go
And it was because I just couldn't let you know
All of those things that my bedroom mirror showed
So I told you it was nothing personal

And I know someday you'll find out what went down
Can't keep a secret in this town
Sooner or later word gets around, around, around,
Around, around, around,
Around...

    General CommentI don't feel the song to be about a girlfriend per say, but a girl of interest, who's trust he betrays. I think he's saying he gave her up, chose the way with easy girls, easy ways. Because he loved her and didn't want to admit it to himself.

    "I let you go, yeah, I know, I let you go
    And it was because I just couldn't let you know"

    To me, that says he knew he felt or could feel so much for her, so he chose to, in lack of better words, to ignore it and stay on the path he was on. But he knows what he gave up, and he knows she will know, too.

    Maybe I'm a hopeless romantic, but that line definitely throws a curveball in the song.
