Lie
Quavo Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Breakfast is cold, as cold as our bed
I'm watching you choke down the words that you said
I watch you devour, mistake me for bread
Well boy, is you fed? Or are you misled?
I gave you the messiest head
You give me the messiest head
Oh, you turnin' red
'Cause I'm tryna' give the impression that I get the message you wish I was dead

See you 'bouta break a sweat
I, I, I
I won't let us finish yet
I, I, I
Please don't take this as a threat
I, I, I
All I'm sayin' is if you don't love me no more then lie, lie
Lie, Lie

(Quavo!)
I heard what you said (what she say)
You talk about your head game (oh)
I know that it's fire, flame (fire)
Your mouth make a hurricane (splash)
You notice that we in love (love)
That's something we cannot change (no)
It's the plans we should arrange (plans)
Treat her right and she won't complain (yeah)
Bring back the title (bring back)
She talk like the iPhone (yeah)
Got no one to lie to (no)
There's no need to lie no more (eh)
Bring me a trial (bring)
Every move's vital
What you gon' die for
When everything you told, lies, alright

Lie, lie
Lie, lie




Lie, lie
Lie, lie

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Quavo’s song “Lie” are both playful and suggestive at the same time, as the rapper addresses a lover with whom things are going awry. The opening lines describe an awkward breakfast between the two, with each partner avoiding deeper conversation as they silently consume their food. Quavo acknowledges that he gave the woman what he alludes to as “the messiest head”, and notes how she “turns red” when he implies that he’s received a message about her wanting him dead.


The song moves on to describe the lover’s oral skills with metaphorical descriptors such as her “mouth making a hurricane” and her head game being “fire, flame”. However, Quavo quickly pivots the lyrics to reflect on the couple’s deeper issues, pointing out that they’re “in love” but that they’re also in a place of uncertainty. He urges his partner to treat him right and not to lie, but also acknowledges that things might not work out and ends the chorus by urging her to lie if she doesn’t love him anymore.


Overall, the song can be interpreted in many different ways, but it seems to reflect the push and pull that often happens in relationships. The frustration and insecurity that the rapper feels come through clearly in the song, but he also tries to make light of the situation by infusing the lyrics with humor and metaphorical language.


Some possible interpretations of the lyrics might include the idea that Quavo is trying to prove his worth to his lover or that both partners are struggling to communicate their feelings effectively. However, the overall vibe is lighthearted and playful, despite the underlying tension.
