A Lie is a Lie, Even when it's White.

I say I'm ten, when I'm nine and a half,
my uncle tells a joke and I try to laugh,
in gym I fake a headache when I want to quit,
I say I love the sweater that my grandma knitted,
but that's a white lie (white lie),
it's the kind you want to tell,
a white lie (white lie),
so your mom won't have to yell,
a white lie (white lie),
everybody does it 'cause it's feel alright
and it's more polite,
but a lie is still lie, even when it's white.

I pretend I'm asleep when my dad walks in,
I said I ate my chicken but I just ate the skin,
your face can say you're lying when your mouth says you're not,
your pants are on fire but they're not too hot
when it's a white lie (white lie),
it's the kind you want to tell,
a white lie (white lie),
so your dad won't have to yell,
a white lie (white lie),
everybody does it 'cause it's feel alright
and it's more polite,
but a lie is still lie, even when it's white.

While it might be hard to say what's true,
would you want a white lie told to you?


Lovely! I hearts this a lot.

Who would have thought there's such a heart-warming scene in 'Lie to Me'. Hah! Then again, it's a songs about lies... so... *shrugs* And did I ever mention how I secretly adore Loker and his inability to lie. Poor dude. Gotta love/hate a guy that just had to tell you the truth.

"Do I look fat?"
"Umm.... "

Loker, white lie! White lie!

*grins*

Thank you much for this video and especially for the text. I've been looking for this songs a few months. Really. Since I had heard this song in Lie to me I decided to get it by all means. And now I've already done it. It's truly very warm and sweet.
P.S. I'm from Ukraine and I don't speak much English so I'm sorry if I used some words incorrectly.
