"The Lie" as written by and Steve/prince Stapler....
She thought the marriage was over
And she needed a shoulder to cry on
She turned to another
And for one night found a lover but it felt so wrong
The next month they reconciled
But every time she saw him smile
She knew she couldn't tell him about that night
She prays to God he never finds out about the lie

Like a pain almost too much to bear
The guilt will always be right there
Ripping away at her heart
Some would say she's wrong to keep
The secret from him but she
Knows the truth would tear his world apart
She's gonna live and die with the lie

Their little boy turned five the other day
At the party she'd never seen a face so happy
She worries as the years go by
Will he wonder why he don't look like his daddy

She sees them playing in the yard
Their laughter sometimes hits her hard
The bond they share makes her start to cry
In times like that she'd give anything
If she could change the lie

Like a pain almost too much to bear
The guilt will always be right there
Ripping away at her heart
Some would say she's wrong to keep
The secret from him but she
Knows the truth would tear his world apart
She's gonna live and die with the lie

They never spoke about that night they shared so long ago
But every day they pass at work and she wonders if he knows

Like a pain almost too much to bear
The guilt will always be right there
Ripping away at her heart
Some would say she's wrong to keep
The secret from him but she
Knows the truth would tear his world apart
She's gonna live and die
She's gonna live and die with the lie
