Off the same CD as Babyface's smash "And Our Feelings," this song describes what happens when we lie to someone important to us. The guy in the song tells his girl that "I never meant to lie to you, but I needed me an easy out." He pleads that "nothing has changed" and claims his actions were a momentary insanity. He promises her that he's "never keeping se- crets," and "never telling lies" again. Unfortunately, his assessment is inaccurate. In fact, a lot has changed. Lies destroy trust. Trying to minimize the in- cident is not the way to heal the hurt his decep- tions cause. To his credit, he states, "I apologize for each and every lie." Certainly, this is the place to begin healing, with an honest apology not wa- tered down with excuses. Next he might choose to validate how the lies have hurt the trust between them. Trust and re- spect are love's two essential foundations. Lies create mistrust. When this occurs, there is no quick way to restore trust. If both people want to re- store trust, they need to take time to talk honestly about their feelings. The guy could also benefit from sons why he lies. Most people do not lie j sake of hurting another person. When a person ex- plores the actions that led up to a lie, he or she is likely to discover feelings, questions, fears or doubts that have been avoided and denied. : Yet, there are instances where lying sive that it represents manipulation.arid abuse. individual may be out of control, not knowing from a lie and unaware or not caring lying does to others.

"I Love Trouble" (Touch- stone) Tiresome, often tasteless, ro- mantic comedy in which rival Chicago newspaper reporters (Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte) join forces in more ways than one to uncover a billion-dollar corporate scam.
