Julia Michaels – “Lie Like This” lyric video
“Head on your shoulder you keep pulling me close. I’m spilling over trying not to unfold. I don’t need to tell you but I’m letting you know. The truth is I can’t resist whenever we lie like this. Held onto horses but I’m letting them go. We’re right on course to never stop or go slow. I don’t need to tell you but I’m letting you know. The truth is I can’t resist whenever we lie like this.” – lyrics
‘Lie Like This’ tells an appealing tale about a young woman who shares a challenging relationship with her significant other. Apparently, he thinks she’s pretty, up-front, emotionally sound (most of the time), but she likes daydreaming a lot about leaving for no apparent reason. In a nutshell, she’s a little too hard to handle and tough to get to know. But he falls in love with her anyway after encountering her beautiful soul once he broke through her inner shell.
‘Lie Like This’ contains a relatable narrative, ear-welcoming vocals, and intimate delivery. Also, the alluring electro-pop tune possesses dance-friendly instrumentation flavored with a rapid BPM and neon synths. Furthermore, “Lie Like This” shows another side of Julia Michaels’s representative of her penchant for pushing boundaries.
“The truth is I can’t resist whenever we lie like this.”
“The song is about being hesitant about this new, beautiful thing and just giving in anyway because you know that it’s really special. There are so many spectrums of love. One minute, you’re crying on the floor because you’ve been broken up with. Or, something didn’t work out the way that you wanted to. Then, all of a sudden, you’re kissing in a park and you’re holding hands with someone new and you’ve got all these butterflies. It’s just such a broad spectrum, such a range of emotions—love—and I wanted to distill its essence into a song.” – Julia Michaels stated
