My little white lie
My little white lie
My little white lie
My little white lie

I swallowed a secret
It worked like a charm
It never got to me
It did me no harm

The first time was easy
But this time it kills
'Cause the secret broke open
And the poison has spilled

I just walked through customs
Like nothing to hide
The secret I carry
Is hidden inside

But inside it busted
Started burning like hell
Like truth under pressure
Bursting to tell

And I know in my soul
That it's poison
This secret I carry inside
And I know it will cut
A tear in my gut till I die

My little white lie
My little white lie
My little white lie
My little white lie

There are secrets you carry
It's what we all do
You keep them well hidden
You smuggle them through

Something unspoken
Like that lump in your throat
You choke it down quickly
Like a crumpled up note

In my gut I can feel it
That little white lie
It made me feel daring
It made me feel high

But the secret's not keeping
It pops that balloon
And the poison is speaking
My death and my doom

And I know in my soul
That it's poison
This secret I carry inside
And I know it will cut
A tear in my gut till I die

My little white lie
My little white lie
My little white lie
My little white lie
