Better Off Lying

from Songs About H​.​E​.​R. by Manny X



Recently a fan requested that I release this song on Soundcloud so that they can stream it and share it....and i thought....hey, why not!?

I really enjoy this song because of the controversial concept presented. Think about it for a second: Everyone SAYS they want to know the truth.....and we SWEAR on everything that we would want nothing but the truth.............but, lets be often do we find ourselves not being completely honest with ourselves...let alone with others?.....makes me wonder how much we REALLY want the truth (enough to write a song about how easy it is to smother the facts in some pretty little lies).



What would you do if you knew that the truth would break us up?
would you wanna know or would you rather not bring it up?
I'm talking hypothetically, what's wrong...
with a little lie to help us stay strong?
I think I'm better off lying to you.....
i think I'm better off lying to you
I think we're better off lying than igniting a fuse...
So would you rather have me lie to you or tell you the truth?
