Live a Lie Lyrics

by Jazmine Sullivan

How you gon' do that to me?
(Sigh)
I can't believe this

I wish I never ever got drunk that night
Made me foolish enough to come to your crib
Walked up the stairs and then I turned on the lights
Couldn't even speak because it happened so quick

I wish I never saw your punk ass that night
You always seem to calm me down with your lies
Even though I know better I try and I try
But u always have the perfect alibi

If a lie gon' get me through
I rather not know the truth
If the truth gon' make me cry
I rather just live a lie
I rather just live a lie

I wish I never ever saw you that night
Rite now I'd still be thinkin' we were okay
I called you just before I got on my flight
I say I love you and you tell me the same

If I could go back in time
I never woulda called your phone up
Never woulda dialed your number
Never woulda gotten that drunk

If I could go back in time
I never woulda gotten that tore
Never woulda asked for one more
Never woulda walked through your door

If a lie gon' get me through
I rather not know the truth
If the truth gon' make me cry
I rather just live a lie
I rather just live a lie

Easier to live like you don't see nuttin
Even tho it ain't rite harder to turn over in
Your bed and he ain't by your side
I think if I didn't walk in that nite
And see you with my own eyes
I would still be livin' a lie

Just gotta know whatever you do
It's gon' come back to you
I can't' believe this

If a lie gon' get me through
I rather not know the truth
If the truth gon' make me cry
I rather just live a lie
