"Sweetest Lie" as written by and John Rzeznik....
Well you play your part so easily
You fooled yourself again
With your lipstick smeared
Across some face
You'll never see again
And I sat there in the corner
Working back my memories
And I wondered if the time would come
You'd get around to me

Living the sweetest lie
Living the sweetest lie

Well you made me feel electric
Every moment that we shared
But the lights went out when I realized
You never even cared
So I picked myself back up
I didn't know where I had been
And the thing
That makes it seem so wrong
Is I want you back again

Living the sweetest lie
Yeah, c'mon baby give me love
Living the sweetest lie
Oh, c'mon baby give me love

You know you'll never be taken
Your love will never be taken, no
And are you tired of waking
Now are you tired of waking alone

Living the sweetest lie
Yeah, c'mon baby give me love
Living the sweetest lie
Oh, c'mon baby give me love

    General CommentI think a girl played him. Who would play him. His voice gives me goose bumps and his lyrics make me think. He's pretty awesome.

    General Commentyour right JTcrazy02 song is pretty straightforward. however my 2 cents: this song really hits home because im or was in a relation ship with a girl who is so alive but she cant be with me only and we are nearly over. she got so many guy/boy friends BAH a bit of a slut but when i was with her it was amazing...... it would never work i know but i kinda want her back again but that would be a sweet lie to live.
