"Live a Lie" as written by Salaam Remi and Jazmine Sullivan....
How you goin' do that to me? (sigh)
I can't believe this

I wish I never ever got drunk that night
Made me foolish enough to come to your crib
Walked up the stairs and then I turned on the lights
Couldn't even speak because it happened so quick
I wish I never saw your punk ass that night
You always seem to calm me down with your lies
Even though I know better I try and I try
But you always have the perfect alibi

If a lie goin' get me through
I rather not know the truth
If the truth goin' make me cry
I rather just live a lie

If a lie goin' get me through
I rather not know the truth
If the truth goin' make me cry
I rather just live a lie

I wish I never ever saw you that night
Rite now I'd still be thinking we were OK
I called you just before I got on my flight
I say 'I love you', And you tell me the same
If I could go back in time
I never would of called your phone up
Never would of dialed your number
Never would of gotten that drunk
If I could go back in time
I never would of gotten that tore
Never would of asked for one more
Never would of walked through your door

If a lie goin' get me through
I rather not know the truth
If the truth goin' make me cry
I rather just live a lie

If a lie goin' get me through
I rather not know the truth
If the truth goin' make me cry
I rather just live a lie

Easier to live
Like you don't see nothing
Even tho it ain't rite
Harder to turn over in your bed and he ain't by your side
I think if I didn't walk in that night
And see you with my own eyes
I would still be living a lie

Just gotta know
Whatever you do
It's goin' come back to you
I cant' believe this

If a lie goin' get me through
I rather not know the truth
If the truth goin' make me cry
I rather just live a lie

    General CommentI'm still kinda lost as to the true meaning of this song, but it could be she got drunk, hooked up with an ex & regretted it? I dunno. Just my interpretation.

    General CommentNa she knew she was being cheated on but didnt want to belive it. but after drinking 1 nite she decides to find out truth so she goes to his house and saw him in bed. so now she wishes she could still live in the lie so she could keep her man
