Lyrics for Gwen Stefani – Baby Don’t Lie

Uh huh, here we go

We been walking down this road for sometime
And you love, and you love me good, no lie
But there’s something behind those eyes, those eyes
That you can’t, that you can’t disguise, disguise

Baby don’t, baby don’t, baby don’t lie
I don’t wanna cry no longer
Baby don’t, baby don’t, baby don’t lie
I’m a’ need a love that’s stronger
I’ll tell you know, tell you know, tell you know why, know why
If we ever give up, then we’re gonna die
Look me in the eye
Baby don’t lie

We been walking down this road for sometime
And you love, and you love me good, no lie
But there’s something behind those eyes, those eyes
That you can’t, that you can’t disguise, disguise

Baby tell me there’s nothing below (ooh)
Baby tell me there’s nothing below (here we go, come on!)

Baby don’t, baby don’t, baby don’t lie
I don’t wanna cry no longer
Baby don’t, baby don’t, baby don’t lie
I’m a’ need a love that’s stronger
I’ll tell you know, tell you know, tell you know why, know why
If we ever give up, then we’re gonna die
Look me in the eye
Baby don’t lie

Whatcha’ hiding boy?
Whatcha’ hiding boy?
I can tell what you’ve been hiding boy
And you can tell me if I’m getting warm
Am I getting warm?
Am I getting warm?
Am I getting warm?
And you can tell me if I’m getting warm

Baby don’t, baby don’t, baby don’t lie
I don’t wanna cry no longer
Baby don’t, baby don’t, baby don’t lie
I’m a’ need a love that’s stronger
I’ll tell you know, tell you know, tell you know why, know why
If we ever give up, then we’re gonna die
Look me in the eye
Baby don’t lie

Baby don’t lie
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Baby don’t lie
