"Lying to You" as written by and Keaton Leslie Henson....
I can see in your eyes that you mean it.
I can feel in your arms that it's true.
And though I just heard myself say it,
Baby, I'm lying to you.

All of these years you've been lonely,
And knowing not what you should do.
And though you are right, I've been looking as well.
Babe, I'm not looking for you.

I'm just as damn disappointed as you,
Only I just do better to hide it.
And the one thing that keeps me from falling for you,
Is I'm truly alone and I like it.

As we lie in bed I feel lonely,
Though we're young, I feel eighty years old.
And your arms around me are keeping me warm.
But baby, I'm still feeling cold.

And girl you must know you are lovely,
You're kind and you're beautiful too.
And I feel in some way I do love you
But babe, I'm not in love with you.

It may seem strange that still I stay with you,
If it's true you're not really the one.
And why don't I just keep on looking for her?
Because I found her and now she is gone.

    My InterpretationI think that Keaton is talking about the fact that the woman he is singing to was the one, but then he fell out of love with her. Now he no longer truly belives in love because this woman who used to be his everything is not anymore. He feels hopeless that he will ever feel about anyone the way he felt about her, so he stays with her. There is nothing else out there for him, only her, but her as she used to be. 'The One' for him is just a memory now.
