​Little White Lie

This song is by Tanya Stephens and appears on the album Gangsta Blues (2003).

Once upon a time there was a happy family, there was a baby girl, there was a daddy, and there was a mommy
Mommy had a secret, she told a little white lie
When she tucked her baby in at night, she sang her this lullabye

You've got your daddy's smile you've got his eyes, I feel my heart breakin, every time you cry, I'm gonna burn in hell, but its no sacrifice your stability is worth a many of lies. I c your daddy in everytihng you do 'n' if you could talk I bet you'd talk like him too, but he can't b ur daddy I hope you understand, a man who thinks hes ur father is a much better man, maybe one day ull end up cryin on rikki lake but baby that's the chance ur mommas willin' to take, 'cause I love you even if my heart is gonna break, ain't no reason you should suffer for my mistake, and so I lie, and baby I try and it kills me inside, but I'm gonna live with this until the day I die, and it hurts baby o how I hurt, but I know what ur worth, yeah, so I'm gonna live with this until I hit the dirt

Some day,

And every day by herself, her momma cried, but at night shed smile when her daddy was by her side, there were times she almost told her, and it really broke her heart, but she forced herself to keep a secret that was tearin her apart

Now I can't sleep at night I lostr my appetite, everybody keeps sayin' that baby looks kinda light, and I tel them every newborn baby looks the same while I'm prayin' to god, please make your colour change. the emotions on his face when hes lookin' at you, I couldn't tell him he ain't your poppa if I wanted to, hes got ur picture to prove in his arms,
Now hes braggin to his friends bout his forst born, and oh god, and I love him really I do and if hed have found out it would kill me too, now I'm caught between a rock n a really hard place, id give anything to keep that smile on his face, so I lie, baby I try, and it kills me inside, yeah, but I'm gonna live with this until the day I die, and it hurt baby o how I hurt but I know what ur worth so I'm gonna live with this until I hit the dirt

Someday

Mommy kept the family together the best way she could 'cause she knew in this case the truth would do more harm than good
What daddy didn't know didn't hurt him, he had no cause to fret, and that's as close to happily ever after any1 can get
O how I try, and it kills me inside, but I'm gonna live with this until the day I die and it hurts o baby o how I hurt, but I know what ur worth so I'm gonna live with this until I hit the dirt
