"Dear Lie" as written by Tionne Tenese Watkins and Kenneth B Edmonds....
Dear lie
You suck
You said you could fix anything
Instead I'm fucked
You made things even worse for me
If I had balls I'd tell you get away from me
Guess I'm not smart
I let you unnerve me
I let you control me
Afraid the truth would hurt me
When it's you that hurts me more

Get outta my mouth
Get outta my head
Get outta my mind
Stop puttin' words in my head
Get outta my mouth
You're nothing but trouble
Get outta my life
Get out of me
Out of me (out of me)
Out of me
Out of me lie
Lie lie lie lie

Dear lie
You're dumb
You think you've got the best of me
You think you won
Misread my vulnerability
I've got your walls
Now get the hell away from me
I've learned your art
Won't let you unnerve me
Won't let you control me
The truth will only free me
And your lies won't hurt no
No more

Get outta my mouth
Get outta my head
Get outta my mind
Stop puttin' words in my head
Get outta my mouth
You're nothing but trouble
Get outta my life
Get out of me
Out of me (out of me)
Out of me
Out of me lie
Lie lie lie lie

Lie lie
I've got
Your walls
Now get the hell away from me
I learned your art
Won't let you unnerve me
Wont' let you control me
The truth will only free me
And your lies won't hurt no
No more

Get outta my mouth
Get outta my head
Get outta my mind
Stop puttin' words in my head
Get outta my mouth
You're nothing but trouble
Get outta my life
Get out of me
Out of me (out of me)
Out of me
Out of me lie
Lie lie lie lie

Lie lie
Dear lie
Lie Lie Lie Lie
Lie Lie
Dear lie

    General CommentThis is one of the best songs that TLC have ever produced. It really unearths all those deep meaningful emotions and hits you in the face. I love it.

    General CommentActually I stronly disagree with angel2kiss. I think BrummyGal hit the bullseye with her explanation. Sometimes the simplest explanation makes the most sense, whichi n this case it does.

    General CommentI agree w/ BrummyGal too, and disagree w/ angel2kiss. I think it's stretching it, to say that the lie is referring to a guy

    General CommentI love this song. I'm really surprised that hardly anyone has commented on most of TLC's songs. I just think its about a lie in general, not necessarily about a guy.. Thats kinda reading a lot into it :P but yeah its an awesome song and im sad that Lefteyes gone and TLC are gone :( but at least we still got the awesome songs. :P

    General CommentVery powerful song. One of their best as far as I'm concerned. I think it's about a bad relationship she was in, and there were many things wrong with it, one of those things being LIES.

    "I let you unnerve me
    I let you control me
    Afraid the truth would hurt me
    When it's you that hurts me more"

    That has to be about a man, and I've been there so I know exactly how she feels. I think to really get it you have to love somebody so much you feel like you can't live without them, but at the same time you know things aren't the way they should be.

    General Commentto me personally this song is about my eating disorder... me saying to it that all the things it promised me was lies... for example... i wasnt happier..it wouldnt make people like me more...life wouldnt be easier... all if i was thin and listening to the voice in my head sayin i was fat. they was all LIES. so sayin get out of my mind.. get out of my life... is like pleading for the lie to leave me alone. also sayin im fucked... i actully was... left me with so many medical problems! the truth did set me free.. the truth was i was fat at all... and learn to love yourself! xx
