"Valerie" as written by Martin "doc" Mckinney, Abel Tesfaye and Carlo Montagnese....
There comes a time in a man's life
He must take responsibility
For the choices he has made
There are certain things that he must do
Things that he must say

Like I Love you
And I need you
I only want you
And nobody's goin' to know if it's true

I never thought I'd feel this kind of hesitation (tonight)
My hand on another girl
I wish I didn't have to lie
I wish I could let you know

'Cause I love you
And I need you
I only want you
And nobody's going to know if it's true

Valerie
I know you can see through me
Valerie
You just choose to never know
Valerie
Why pretend to trust in me?
(I don't know why you try to trust in me baby, but I think I might know )
Valerie
You'd rather this than be alone
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

'Cause I love you
And I need you
I only want you
And nobody's going to know if it's true

'Cause I love you
And I need you
I only want you
And nobody's going to know if it's true

And I love you
And I need you
I only want you
And nobody gonna know

    General CommentHe doesn't love her and he never will, but he tells her that he does. He knows it's a lie and so does she, but no one else does and since she'd rather listen to his lies than be alone this is the cycle
