I Shoulda Lied - Boyz II Men

[Verse 1 - Shawn]
I probably should have told her the sky was falling
Or maybe that my car ran out of gas
My grandma was sick and I had to leave town right away
Not ok

[Nate]
Tell one more to fix the last one
But I never get back to the truth
Thinking to myself she'll never find out
That's what we do (That's what we do)
That's how we do (That's how we do)

[Bridge 1 - Wanya]
I wonder what she really thinks of me
Shouldn't really told her everything
But it's too late
Can't take it back
She'll never look at me the same way again
noooooo

[Chorus]
(I shoulda lied) Cuz the truth may not set me free
(And now goodbye) Is more than just a word
My honesty just became my enemy
Maybe a lie would have made things right this time
Shoulda lied
Shoulda lied

[Verse 2 - Nate]
Shoulda said it was the end of the world
But sadly it's my reality

[Shawn]
Would she stay if I said I only had one day left
Stay with me (Stay with me)
Please don't leave (Please don't leave)

[Bridge 2 - Wanya]
I wonder what she really thinks of me
I wish I would have never said a thing
But it's too late for that
I don't think she's coming back
And I'll never look at truth the same again

[Chorus]
(I shoulda lied) Cuz the truth may not set me free
(And now goodbye) Is more than just a word
My honesty just became my enemy
Maybe a lie would have made things right this time
Shoulda lied
Shoulda lied

[Bridge 2 - Wanya]
Now I'm trying hard to convince my heart
That everything would be ok
She said she'll never leave
and I just can't believe she's gone
And now I know

[Chorus]
(I shoulda lied) Cuz the truth may not set me free
(And now goodbye) Is more than just a word
My honesty just became my enemy
Maybe a lie would have made things right this time
I Shoulda lied
And now goodbye

Promise myself next time I won't tell the truth
Cuz If I knew what I knew right now I'll still be with you
I shoulda lied
Shoulda lied
I shoulda lied
Should lied
