Stretch the truth
Stretch the truth (English) — To say something that is not completely honest in order to make someone or something seem better than they, or it really is.
You might say that you went out last night. But you failed to mention with whom.
Salesmen are notorious for it. A used car may be a 'real deal'. The salesman failed to reveal that is was in a crash, or a flood.
Stretch the truth — преувеличивать; искажать, извращать правду
"Stretch the truth" in lyrics
Can we pretend that it never even happened?
I will sing myself to sleep cause you've made a liar out of me
I watch my shadow stretch from my feet like the way we stretch the truth
I wish i could play the victim for you
I just needed room to breathe
