This song is available on Vitamin L's Walk A Mile
I'm not gonna tell you any more lies,
'Cause I've had quite a fright!
You see, I told you a lie just yesterday,
And I, I couldn't sleep all night!
It felt just like a monster,
I created in my own mind.
All I said was no when I should've said yes...
Then no peace could I find!
Honesty, you're a good friend,
And I want you back again.
Cause it feels so good inside,
Every time I've tried honesty!
I felt this feeling coming over me,
And for the very first time,
I couldn't look you in the eye,
I felt like I'd committed a crime!
Why didn't I just tell the truth?
It would've been so much easier on me.
If I knew then what I know now...
I would've tried honesty!
I thought that I could get away with it,
But I should never have tried.
'Cause though nobody else found out,
Well I still knew I lied!
Some folks call it clever,
And some folks call it smooth,
But no matter what you call a lie,
It's a lie and THAT'S THE TRUTH!
