You should never tell a lie.

My father approached me by surprise
Telling me, he wants to go to a Casino.
Yet, he would like me to tell a lie.
I said to my father, 
“My mother needs to Know...”

My friend called me by his mobile
To tell his girlfriend he was on a meeting
But he was on a dating.
I confronted my friend.
I said, “Better inform your girlfriend
'Cause I just can't tell another lie.”

My wife told me yesterday.
She said, “I am sorry.”
But when I looked into her eyes, 
I saw lack of sincerity.
I told my wife, 
“Hey, you can't lie to me.”

Now I ask myself, 
Why everyone needs to lie? 
'Cause it's a lie, I hate.
'Cause it's a lie, I don't want it.
'Cause it's a lie, I can't forgive.
'Cause it's a lie, I can't forget.

After all, a lie is a lie.
