Little White Lies - One Direction


The Experience: She said she was a good girl, but seeing through her little white lies, One Direction know what's gonna happen - backseat of the cab

Lyric Video


The Meaning of Little White Lies describes a pick-up scene. The girl comes in, pretending like I don't know if I can stay, but her hands and her eyes saying what we'd do. The guy gets the message, that her pretending to be chaste is just a bunch of little white lies. He plans on getting her backseat, saying I know you would, girl. When she tries to make some rules, he's already decided to watch them break. A common enough story: when a girl 'turns a guy on' and breaks her own rules... the guy will be the one calling the shots. 

Ask Yourself: Do I expect real commitment from my boyfriend...? Or does he know that my rules are just little white lies that he can run over when he really wants to? 


LYRICS:
If this room was burning
I wouldn't even notice
'Cause you've been taking up my mind
With your, little white lies, little white lies

You say it's getting late, it's getting late
And you don't know if you can stay, if you can stay
But you, you don't tell the truth
No, you, you like playing games
Your hands touching me, they're touching me
And your eyes keep saying things
They're saying what we'd do
When it's only me and you
I can't concentrate
That's all I'm thinking about
All I keep thinking about
Everything else just fades away

If this room was burning
I wouldn't even notice
'Cause you've been taking up my mind
With your, little white lies, little white lies

You say you're a good girl
But I know you would girl
'Cause you've been telling me all night
With your, little white lies, little white lies
With your, little white lies, little white lies

Backseat of the cab, we're in the cab now
Lips getting so attached, they're so attached now
You wanna make some rules now
Cool, then we'll watch them break
Tonight, I know what you want
And I've been waiting so long

If this room was burning
I wouldn't even notice
'Cause you've been taking up my mind
With your, little white lies, little white lies

You say you're a good girl
But I know you would girl
'Cause you've been telling me all night
With your, little white lies, little white lies
With your, little white lies, little white lies

I know you want it
I know you feel it too
Let's stop pretending
That you don't know what I don't know
Just what we came to do (what we came to do)

If this room was burning
I wouldn't even notice
'Cause you've been taking up my mind
With your, little white lies, little white lies

You say you're a good girl
But I know you would girl
'Cause you've been telling me all night
With your, little white lies, little white lies
With your, little white lies, little white lies
