Tell me the lies I long to hear - how we want to hear words so much, it doesn't matter if they're lies or not.

Just tell me that you love me

Tell me you'll always be here

Tell me how much you need me

Tell me the lies I long to hear

Promise me another tomorrow

Tell me it's you I'll always see

Kiss me and tell me you love me

Tell me the lies I long to hear

Whisper another sweet love song

Tell me, to your heart, I'm always near

Convince me there is no other

Tell me the lies I long to hear

Promise that there is no ending

Promise that there is a God

Tell me I've lived my life fully

Tell me the lies I long to hear

Decieve me that love really lives here

Betray me with your unselfish lies

Convince me the child is my son

Tell me the lies I long to hear

I promise I'll always tell you

The truths that you want to hear

I promise I'll never betray you

I'll tell the lies that you want to hear

Thankyou again leesah :) I think we have all felt this way. But I often ask myself, is it better to lie than to hurt, or better to tell the truth and shame the devil, regardless of what the consequences? It's a tough decision sometimes methinks. Thankyou for your constant encouragement :0

This is some piece of work. I really like this poem. I like the honesty in this poem, we all need to be lied to at some time. Great work turning that into a great poem.

Thankyou very much :) Now when you made that comment, were you telling me the lies I needed to hear or being sincere? lol. Thanks for your comment, very much appreciated.

This poem is painfully true. Everyone, at some point in their lives, feels this way. You put it so plainly for everyone to understand how you were feeling in this poem. Very very good write! =)

Sometimes there's no comfort in the truth and all that one wants to hear is something sounding nice, no matter how false it might be. But I like how the poem ends, with a promise to tell just what the friend wants to hear - pseudo truths. Am finding this is funny too.

Honesty is the key for relationships, be it intimate, or family relationships.
