Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa (why you lie to me) 
Whoa whoa whoa (you was everything I needed) 
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa (I can't go on) (I gotta know when it is true) 
Sweet lies, girl (listen) 
(Verse one) 
My stomach aches and sweat in my palms
This is so sudden (what I'm supposed to do?)
I thought that love calls between our hearts
We're truly touching (be careful what you ask for)
(B-Section)
One day I'll meet that special girl
Just for me
She'll have open ears
She won't ignore me
I'll bet I'll meet some special girl
She'll save the day
And she'll get it (ohhhhhhh)
When I say girl
(Hook)
I don't want to go on
In this life
Wondering why
Why
I'd rather the bitter truth
When it comes to you
Than those sweet lies
Lies (sweet lies)
(Verse Two)
Why oh why this song
Don't you love me (I love you, put that on everything)
Well maybe where I went wrong
Was callin you honey (shorty, shawty, don't matter)
(B-Section)
One day I'll meet that special girl
Just for me
She'll have open ears
She won't ignore me
I'll bet I'll meet some special girl
She'll save the day
And she'll get it (ohhhhhhh)
When I say girl
(Hook)
I don't want to go on
In this life
Wondering why
Why
I'd rather the bitter truth
When it comes to you
Than those sweet lies
Lies (sweet lies)
(Bridge) 
Ohhhhhhh (what I'm supposed to do) 
Ohhhhhhh (sit around herea ll day thinking about this) 
(man please) 
Ohhhhhhh (I'm lacing up my bathing apes) 
Then I'm out
I'm out to night
You'll see
(Verse 3)
I bet it was sweet on your lips
When you told me (let me show you) 
Ayay (it hurt me) 
My heart is just twisting slowly 
(I let you do) no one to hold me
(B-Section)
One day I'll meet that special girl
Just for me
She'll have open ears
She won't ignore me
I'll bet I'll meet some special girl
She'll save the day
And she'll get it (ohhhhhhh)
When I say girl
(Hook)
I don't want to go on
In this life
Wondering why
Why
I'd rather the bitter truth
When it comes to you
Than those sweet lies
Lies (sweet lies)
Vanessa Marquez:
I'm sorry I messed up on you, baby
Usher:
I heard it a million times, baby
Don't you lie to me, baby
Vanessa Marquez:
And I promise I won't lie to you again
Usher:
Don't you lie, don't you lie to me baby (yeah) 
Woahhhh
