I’m stuck with a problem,

This problem is eating me away,

Making me look back on the pain of yesterday, or the day before,

It brings tears to my eyes,

Makes me tell so many lies,

Just so I can be with you.


But do I really... Really have to be with you?

Can’t I be with someone else?

My heart doesn’t think it can find anyone else,

It always searches for your love,

The love I want,


These lies are what hold us together,

But can also rip us apart,

I could tell everyone what I did,

But is that the best way to go?

If I tell them what will they think of me?

Will they call me a liar?


It’s so hard to do the right thing,

When it comes to you,

You’re always on my mind,

You make my heart beat only for you.


I just want to tell you,

"It’s okay we can work this out"

But will it really work out the way we want it to?

Or will it be another one of those chapters we thought we could make through..


Don't keep asking me what’s wrong,

I won’t tell you,

Baby I’m so sorry for lying to you, I hope you don’t think of me different,

I don’t want to lose you,

But having this feeling for this other person..

Is killing me too,


I want to tell you, oh I really do...

But something inside me tells me not to,

The other guy knows my problem

He says it’s happening with him to,

Falling for me with he’s with someone else.

We have the same problem...

What should I do?


How can I live with this lie?
