-1A Simple Lie

Verse One: (soft, slightly sad)

Don't wanna know,

Why you came in late,

Last night,

Hmmm…

And if you leave it up to me,

I'd never have to wonder,

About you.

Oooh…

I'll never wonder why,

When you kissed my lips,

You whispered his name,

So softly,

Passionately….

Pre-Chorus: (sing a little faster, ascend into power, echo)

Baby, its not that easy,

Ooh… not that easy,

To lie to yourself,

When the truth ,

Is right in front of my eyes!

My eyes!

Chorus: (Power, begging, sad)

Baby, lie to me!

Tell a simple lie!

Say that you love me!

Baby, you need me!

I don't!

OOH… I don't want!

Say, say a simple lie.

Verse Two:

(falsetto) Yeah, yeah, yeah

People keep telling me what they heard,

I pretend,

I never heard a thing…

(power) He may love you babe,

But I had you first (hold "first" for a few seconds)

And I can't imagine a life without you,

Not without you (ECHO, full power)

Ca-woo… Cause…. (hold into the pre chorus)

Pre-Chorus: (arrange the style of singing slightly differently)

Baby, its not that easy,

Ooh… not that easy,

To lie to yourself,

When the truth ,

Is right in front of my eyes!

My eyes!

Chorus: (Power, begging, sad) (ad-lib)

Baby, lie to me!

Tell a simple lie!

Say that you love me!

Baby, you need me!

I don't!

OOH… I don't want!

Say, say a simple lie.

Hook: (soft and slowly into a falsetto then power)

They say I'm a fool,

Say what you want,

I'm not leaving the best thing,

I've ever oh ever had,

Ooh…

Call it what you want!

Baby, Baby,

Please!

Just lie to me!

What's sp hard about a simple lie!

((Chorus until end, ad-lib)
