“Baby Don’t Lie” lyrics

(B. Blanco, G. Stefani, R. Tedder, N. Zancanella)

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
Imma’ 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
Imma’ 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
Imma’ 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

  1. Downloaded! I’ve been surprised by all the negative comments I’ve seen here. I think it’s brilliant. It’s different, it’s current, but it’s still very much a Gwen song. Fits in great with hero other solo work and it makes me want to dance. It’s everything I wanted from her solo return, and I can’t wait to hear what else she has in store for us. I think it sounds like a hit, but even is it’s not I’m happy.

  2. The ideal promo schedule is if gwen keeps tweeting about the single for the next week and making a few tv performances on talk shows. Hopefully releasing the music video on the voice next week then performing it on the voice in a few weeks once the live shows start. Also hoping she will perform it at the european music awards and the american music awards next month! I remember she promoted the hell out of wind it up (like 7 or 8 televised performances) and that is what made it a top 10 hit…the same could be done for baby don’t lie!

  3. I usually don’t even purchase.singles …but because it’s Gwen …damn right I purchased ! It’s her comeback single, this is a LONG time coming and very long awaited! Can’t wait for what’s to come ! I really just wanna.see the video now ! Love the song be ! Love love love! So current, catchy, and just today but still very different and very Gwen ! Such an exciting time!

  4. I love the song! I just hoped they kept the vocal processing mainly at the chorus like,, for instance, Katy Perry’s roar. It,’s unecessary for Gwen’s distinctive voice. Besides that, it”s beatutiful 😀

  5. What You Waiting For – brilliant, inspired, catchy, one of the best pop songs ever.
    Wind It Up – original, well produced, interesting.
    Baby Don’t Lie – so dull… Anyone could have sung this Ryan Tedder song, just like all of his songs. And yeah, her voice is almost unrecognizable from so much processing.

  6. Just got the song. I was surprised because I didn’t expect it to be available worldwide right away. Guys, don’t think twice, purchase the song and if possible “gift” it to friends via iTunes or Amazon. We got to put her back on the charts.
    The song is amazing! I didn’t have high expectations for her solo comeback and I was pleasantly surprised!
    Can’t wait for the video. I hope it’s something edgy and out of the box. I’m sure it’ll be! 🙂

  7. Nice to be Brazilian sometimes… only place to get its iTunes and since I’m not an Apple user, there’s no other source to purchase the song.

  8. Everyone request in to your local radio station to play Baby Dont Lie! Make sure to use the hashtag if through twitter so we can get it trending! It is already #1 on the trending chart.

  9. Agreed its looking like it has great potential. I am so excited and have been requesting in to my radio stations that I can’t fall asleep!

  10. you have to search for it on iTunes. i thought it would be on the main page! at least a little banner or something.
    anyway, it’s currently at number 45. its gone up 10 spots in the last 30 mins 🙂

  11. It’s alright…It’s very “undone” and push and shovey…I wonder if this was a ND track at one time….

    But it’s better to have more Gwen than not!

    She and No Doubt can really do no wrong…

    Congrats to Gwen! She’s taking so many brave new challenges!!!

  12. What happened to the 200+ comments?

    I’m glad it’s out and I hope it’s successful for her….because that will mean ND music if it is 😀

  13. Matheus, it sounds anything like BDL. It’s obvious it’s just some indie artist trying to cash in. Keep in mind that BDL is far from being groundbreaking, and that kind of sound is very generic. You can find some similarity in Princess of China, Burn, Maps and Te Amo.
    I tweeted that artist and they’re convinced it’s a ripoff but it’s their call. It won’t go any further.

  14. Number 17 on iTunes chart! This article sums everything up pretty nicely for those who can’t swallow the BDL pill: http://time.com/3524409/gwen-stefani-baby-dont-lie/.

    “Stefani wastes no time pulling out the big guns for her return to dance music. Radio favorites Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic, Beyoncé), Benny Blanco (Kesha, Katy Perry) and Noel Zancanella (Maroon 5) are among the co-writers and co-producers on the track, which perhaps explains why “Baby Don’t Lie” isn’t quite as left-field and forward-thinking as her debut.”

    “In less capable hands, “Baby Don’t Lie” would leave a weaker impression, but Stefani and all her vocal idiosyncrasies find a way to make it her own. The singer has written many a great song about falling in love with someone who’s got a few skeletons in their closet, and “Baby Don’t Lie” is a worthy entry into that oeuvre. Consider this the amuse-bouche for whatever next-level music of hers Pharrell promised is coming.”

    Reactions on iTunes are overwhelmingly good. Enjoy the solid pop-single comeback. It’s a great song and paving the way for more G!

  15. What a great article 😀 after tonight, the video and the we survive event this is going to do better than more of us though. Loving all the promo. She’s so happy, funny and energetic
    I missed that Gwen from the P&S era

  16. It has cracked the top 10! Hoping gwen can keep the hype up after the video premiere by performing the single on some talk shows and the voice once the live shows start

  17. Baby Dont Lie is falling out of the top 10! Keep requesting the song on the radio and gifting friends via iTunes. Gwen needs to go out and start performing baby dont lie on some talk shows!

  18. The still is on the top 20 with not much promo, to be honest I was expecting more than a day of interviews. Anyway the performance today should help.

  19. Yeah, I expected a little more push too besides a day of radio interviews. But my feeling is, and I could be wrong, this single might be more of a “warm up” single to get her name back out there, and the following singles I’m hoping have a bigger push with TV and such.

    But still it’s very early on in the life of the song so who knows.

  20. Haha you guys need to relax. The single just came out and it did initially well on iTunes and it’s doing great on radio so far. Give it some time. Remember that she will perform it on The Voice eventually.

  21. Let’s be real the performance today won’t help sales much because its not airing on tv…hopefully gwen performs on ellen or something next week.

  22. This does seem to be a repeat of Settle Down so far. The song is falling on the iTunes chart and apparently no one has heard it on the radio yet. She needs to do some promo next week to give it another nudge.

    1. Hm, so far BDL is doing a lot better than SD. BDL stayed on the top 10 on iTunes for about three days, while SD fell out right after the first day and never managed to get up again. Currently BDL is still in the top 30 and even though it fell down, sales are still solid. Airplay is also a lot better for BDL:

      CHR/Pop:
      0 29 GWEN STEFANI Baby Don’t Lie 2295 0 2295 18.748

      + 349 Spins
      + 349 Bullet
      + 1.942 Audience

      Hot AC:
      0 37 GWEN STEFANI Baby Don’t Lie 418 0 418 2.499

      + 90 Spins
      + 90 Bullet
      + 0.463 Audience

      But it’s way too soon to really judge BDL’s performance. Fergie’s single sat somewhere around #60 on iTunes for weeks and now after airplay got better and better it climbed up to #34. We can expect the same to happen with BDL since airplay is really good at this point.

  23. Agreed with jossy. Fergie is at least promoting her single hence why its gaining on radio. You cant expect BDL to gain on radio if its not being promoted..

  24. What you people need to realize is that Fergie’s single was released on September 29th and she has only just started promoting it. Radio slowly starts picking it up after it has been out for a whole month. Gwen on the other hand is already doing really, really well on radio… and this is the first week her single is out. Seriously, everyone is entitled to have their opinion, but sometimes I feel like you guys really just love to complain for the sake of it. So yeah, BDL didn’t go straight to #1 a few hours after it was put on iTunes. But if that is what you guys were expecting, you’re just delusional. No offense. Can we at least give Gwen a month before judging her for not doing enough promo?

  25. Not always the case. Considering how settle down and looking hot did not gain any momentum on radio weeks after release I think most fans would agree it would be in gwens best interest to start promotion as soon as the single is released. Hence why a lot of us have the right to be concerned because we want gwen to have success with the single.

    1. I totally undertand that many fans are nervous, because of the way things went with P&S, but you need to understand that solo Gwen and ND are two totally different worlds with totally different rules/standards. The main problem with SD was that Interscope had no idea what to do with it. Pop radio didn’t pick it up, instead it was played a lot on alternative radio stations. Still Interscope tried to promote it at the Teen Choice Awards, MTV award shows and all these other maintream TV shows. See the problem? Wrong audience. ND did quite a lot promo the week SD was released, but still it didn’t help the song. Good promotion is not really a question of quantity. It’s not the more the better.

      Now with solo Gwen it’s a totally different scenario. Pop radio is already responding really well to BDL and we know there’s a performance on The Voice coming up with about 12 million viewers, who are the perfect target group for solo Gwen. So, if the song sits at #90 on iTunes in four weeks, we could start worrying, but until then it’s just pure hysteria.

  26. I heard BDL on the radio twice tonight! On two different stations….first time hearing it on the radio. It sounds so awesome
