How he makes her feel
When he look her in her eyes and tell her
I love you, yeah

He seems so for real
When he whispers and says
"I'll never leave you, no"

And, he speaks them words to her heart
And make her feel like she on top of the world,
Yeah, oh my

Then turn around and break her heart
And make her feel like the whole world's on top of her, oh oh
And that's enough to make me talk about it

When a man lies,
He pierces the very soul of that woman, yes he does, yeah
I'm just telling the truth
When a man lies,
He kills every reason she ever had for loving him, yeah
Mirror I'm talking to you, yeah

How he promised her things
While he's making sweet love to her mind, selling big dreams,
Yeah, that's what he do,

Or he can paint the scene
With every word out of his mouth, make her wanna believe,
Oh she believes that everything that he says is true

Now all the dreams she bought and the tales he told
From Cinderella to the old pot of gold
Broke her poor heart and stole her glory
And left me here to tell the story

When a man lies,
He pierces the very soul of that woman, yes he does, yeah
And I'm just telling the truth
When a man lies,
He kills every reason she ever had for loving him, yeah
Mirror I'm talking to you, yeah

Hey, now don't ya all gonna shoot the messenger, no
Huh, I was sent here to deliver,
Huh, y'all can go ahead and call me a lawyer, call me unpaid
Cause today I'm representing, the woman

Cause when a man lies,
He pierces the very soul of that woman, yes he does, hey
And I'm just telling the truth
When a man, when he lies (When a man lies)
(He kills...) He kills every reason, that she had, yeah
Mirror, I'm talking to you

(When a man lies
See, y'all wouldn't make
(Hey, he pierces the very soul of that woman)
Biggest mistake of my life
Huh, it was all over
She packed all her things and then moved out of town
(When a man lies)
Now I heard she lives somewhere in north Jersey
(He kills every reason she ever had for loving him)
It hurt me, it hurt me
