That's Why I Lied

That's Why I Lied

New Edition

Listen up ma I got somethin' to tell ya

There's no kisses from you
When I'm leavin' in the mornin'
There's no roses for you
When I know I've hurt your feelings
Don't know what happened to us
Girl I never saw it comin'
How did love go down hill
I think I know what cheatin' men fear

I hit the bar bought a drink
Sippin' slow just to think
Then a star wearin' pink Gucci
She said it looks like you need a friend
The lonely girl is knockin' let me in
We can leave no delay
Take mah mind of this pain
Do caught up things in the Marriott suite
Tell wifey that I might be workin' late
Hope I never have to say I lied

To keep mah six to keep mah house
To still be here to work things out
To find some way babe to make it up to you
That's why I lied
To keep your heart to keep your kiss
To still be here to raise our kids
To keep mah ring babe I couldn't tell the truth
That's why I lied

I'm so nervous these days
Got a feelin' she'll be callin'
I know hurt is on the way
When I dream of angels fallin'
There's no perfect way to say
How mah vowels to you were broken
Who was that on the phone (Holla)
Let me explain before you go
(I hit the bar and bought a drink)

I hit the bar bought a drink
Sippin' slow just to think
Then a star wearin' pink Gucci
She said it looks like you need a friend
The lonely girl was knockin' to let her in
We left with no delay
Took mah mind off the pain
Did caught up things in the Marriott suite
I know I said that I was workin' late
But you found out the day I lied

To keep mah six to keep mah house
To still be here to work things out
To find some way babe to make it up to you
That's why I lied
To keep your heart to keep your kiss
To still be here to raise our kids
To keep mah ring baby I couldn't tell the truth
That's why I lied

From the moment I heard
You say your leavin' (don't go)
It was the worst I thought could happen (4 sure)
I'm already missin' your
Love and your laughter
The mornin' after its not a home
Without you here I swear I learnt my lesson
Baby yeah

To keep mah six to keep mah house
To still be here to work things out
To find some way babe to make it up to you
That's why I lied
To keep your heart to keep your kiss
To still be here to raise our kids
To keep mah ring babe I couldn't tell the truth
That's why I lied

To keep mah six to keep mah house
To still be here to work things out
To find some way babe to make it up to you
That's why I lied
To keep your heart to keep your kiss
To still be here to raise our kids
To keep mah ring babe I couldn't tell the truth
That's why I lied

Strictly for the ladies
Mah black sistaz
Strictly for the ladies
Ya know latinas
Yeah strictly for the ladies
Playboy bunnies and all
Ya know strictly for the ladies
