Lying is when you deliberately bend the truth or give an account that is misleading on purpose. Scenarios are like when someone like a police officer asks you for your name and address and you give a totally different name and address than your actual that is lying. Also acting like you had no involvement in a crime when you did really thats lying, all this is known as obstruction. Other cases are exaggerating where you might give slightly big or smaller than actual figure, e.g slightly higher exam score than you actually got, and you weren't sure about it, thats not lying. Like name and address asked by authority deliberately, giving false information is lying - as exaggerating is just giving an indication on what is true but not deemed as lying.
Lying...in it's simplest form, is purposeful deception from the truth.

I said, "Hi, Greg. I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete also took this of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.

A "lie" in English would be a "scythe".
"Once a liar, always a liar?!"
Lousy lies. Tell the truth, even if it hurts the person.
