Dear Lie is a pop-R&B ballad written by Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds and Tionne Watkins for TLC's third studio album FanMail (1999). It was produced by Babyface and released as the album's third single in the fourth quarter of 1999. Though the song managed to enter the top 30 in the Netherlands, New Zealand, Sweden, and Switzerland, it was widely considered a minor success, among peaking at number 51 on the Billboard Hot 100.
