Nicki Minaj — I Lied lyrics

Hook
I lied, I lied, I lied
To keep you from breaking my heart

Bridge
Even though I said I didn’t love you, I lied, I lied
Even though I said I didn’t need you, I lied, I lied
To keep you from breaking my heart
To keep you from breaking my heart
Even though I said don’t touch me, I lied, I lied

Verse 1
I can’t fall for you, can’t give my all to you
I can’t let you think that Imma let the game stall for you
Gotta protect me, you gotta sweat me
You said you thought you was ready
And I said let’s see
But I ain’t mean that, I need some fucking proof
'Cause what happens if I fall in love,
Then you cut me loose
You just a heartbreaker, won’t let you break mine
'Cause I’ll be smashing windows
And cutting them break lines

Bridge
I lied
'Cause who knew if I should let myself go with you
Who knows, who knows, so I lied
To keep you from breaking my heart
To keep you from breaking my heart
Even though I said fuck you, I lied, I lied

Verse 2
I thought eventually you would let me go
That was my insecurities and my ego
Missed my jump shot, missed my free throw
Miss the way we kiss miss, the d o
Man, it was good while it lasted
That shit wasn’t real, it was magic
If it was a record
It would have been classic
But fuck you though, orgasmic

Bridge
This is what I gotta do to keep me from falling
Stalling the truth
Who knew what you’d do If I let you in
My mama ain't raised no fool
I am not your usual typical type
Who would protect me if I never hide?
Falling so fast, I am afraid of you

So I lied, I lied, I lied
To keep you from breaking my heart
To keep you from breaking my heart
I lied
'Cause what if I let myself go with you
