"Tell Me a Lie" as written by and Kelly Clarkson Sheppard Solomon....
Can't ever get it right
No matter how hard I try
And I've tried
Well I put up a good fight
But your words cut like knives
And I'm tired
As you break my heart again this time

Tell me I'm a screwed up mess
That I never listen, listen
Tell me you don't want my kiss
That you need your distance, distance
Tell me anything but don't you say he's what your missing baby
If he's the reason that you're leaving me tonight
Spare me what you think and
Tell me a lie

Well you're the charming type
That little twinkle in your eye
Gets me every time
And well there must have been a time
I was the reason for that smile
Keep in mind
As you take whats left of you and I

Tell me I'm a screwed up mess
That I never listen, listen
Tell me you don't want my kiss
That you need your distance, distance
Tell me anything but don't you say he's what your missing baby
If he's the reason you're leaving me tonight
Spare me what you think and
Tell me a lie

Tell me a lie
Tell me a lie
Tell me a lie

Tell me I'm a screwed up mess
That I never listen, listen
Tell me you don't want my kiss
That you need your distance, distance
Tell me anything but don't you say he's what your missing baby
If he's the reason you're leaving me tonight
Spare me your what you think and
Tell me a lie

Tell me a lie
Tell me a lie
Tell me a lie

Tell me a lie

    General CommentTo me, this is the best song on the album. It's about a relationship that has been strained by the girl cheating. They constantly argue and the only thing he doesn't want to hear in the argument is how he is better for her, he would prefer to be lied to.

    Song is pretty self explanatory, and very truthful. Sometimes the truth doesn't want to be heard and a lie is only way to spare feelings :/
