"Lie to Me" as written by Bryan Adams and Eliot Kennedy....
Say it, though you're looking down and to the left, now
Say it, like someone who really means it
Do it, 'cause if you grow a conscience, now
We fall down

Smiling, like there's nothing wrong
You're good at smiling, to keep me pressing on
Until the morning, 'cause if you shift to genuine
Then we'll fall out
(We fall out)
And we fall down

Don't say it's all for the better
Oh, I need you to lie, to lie to me
I'll stand for the greatest pretender
I know you won't die for me
But say you will
Just lie to me, to me

So kiss me and tell me I'm the one
There's no other, no other one you want
Baby, kiss me, make sure you close your eyes
Or we fall down
Yes, we fall down

Don't say it's all for the better
Oh, I need you to lie, to lie to me
I'll stand for the greatest pretender
I know you won't die for me
But say you will
Just lie to me, to me

Now I can see, you bite your lip when you look at me
One word, you say, and everything has given you away
Let's close our eyes and save the truth for one more night
Or I fall down
Or I fall down

Don't say it's all for the better
I need you to lie, to lie to me
I'll stand for the greatest pretender
I know you won't die for me

Don't say it's all for the better
Oh, I need you to lie, to lie to me
I'll stand for the greatest pretender
I know you won't die for me
But say you will
Just lie to me, to me
Don't say it's all for the better
Oh, I need you to lie, to lie to me
I'll stand for the greatest pretender
I know you won't die for me

    My InterpretationI think it's about a girl who doens't love him anymore, but he doesn't want to admit it, or at least he doesn't want it to be real, so he tells her to, for now, just lie to him - say that she loves him, so he'll have something to belive in for a little time longer.

    I think it's about a girl who doens't love him anymore, so she has been lying to him for a long time. He knows she's been lying, and he sees that she's about to come clean about it and break up with him. But he loves her so much, and doens't want her to leave, so he would rather stay with her and pretend that she loves her, instead of having to admit the truth. He loves her so much, he doean't care if she doesn

    My InterpretationYeah I believe this song just means he can't take the truth or he's not ready to, because frankly the truth is that the girl he loves and HE would die for wouldn't do the same. It's sorta like "grenade" by Bruno Mars, except this isn't out of hate, it's out of weakness and love that just can't be let go
