Lips Are Moving - Meghan Trainor



The Experience: Meghan's new song is seeing through the moving lips of her boyfriend, past his promises and gifts. He's cheating on her, and she can tell by his lips. "Baby, don't you know, I'm done." 

Official Video: Most of the video toys with optical illusions, things that seem to be real but are just fancy imitations. The video takes us behind many former takes to see how fake the props were, and how our first impressions were wrong. Lips Are Movin' is about seeing past the fake make-up and clothing and realizing when he's lying. The video shows the same in a neat way. 

The meaning of Lips Are Moving is when to break it up, and how to do that with style. Meghan says "I might be young, but I ain't stupid" and "I smell her on your collar." Instead of turning it into a heartbroken anger scene, Meghan shrugs him off. She doesn't lose her self-esteem. She knows she's worth way more than a cheating boyfriend. "You really think I could be replaced?! Nah, I come from outer space.... a classy girl!
Meghan knows she deserves a faithful boy, not a cheater. She sees through his lies and walks off, head held high.

Ask yourself: If someone breaks my dreams is that my problem or theirs? Do I lower my expectations to meet them, or keep my ideals?


LYRICS:
If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving then you're ly-ly-lying, baby
If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving then you're ly-ly-lying, baby

Boy, look at me in my face
Tell me that you're not just about this bass
You really think I could be replaced?!
Nah, I come from outer space
And I'm a classy girl, I'ma hold it up
You're full of something, but it ain't love
What we got, straight overdue
Go find somebody new
You can buy me diamond earrings and deny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny, deny-ny,
But I smell her on your collar so goodbye-bye-bye, bye-bye-bye

I know you lie 'cause your lips are moving
Tell me, do you think I'm dumb?
I might be young, but I ain't stupid
Talking 'round in circles with your tongue
I gave you bass, you gave me sweet talk
Saying now I'm your number one
But I know you lie 'cause your lips are moving
Baby, don't you know, I'm done!

If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving then you're ly-ly-lying, baby
If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving then you're ly-ly-lying, baby

Hey baby don't you bring them tears,
'Cause it's too late, too late baby oooh uh
You only love me when you're here
You're so two-faced, two-faced babe
You can buy me diamond earrings and deny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny, deny-ny (yes, you can baby)
but I smell her on your collar so goodbye-bye-bye, bye-bye-bye

I know you lie 'cause your lips are moving
Tell me, do you think I'm dumb?
I might be young, but I ain't stupid
Talking 'round in circles with your tongue
I gave you bass, you gave me sweet talk
Saying now I'm your number one
But I know you lie 'cause your lips are moving
Baby, don't you know, I'm done!

Come on, say!
If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving then you're ly-ly-lying, baby
If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving then you're ly-ly-lying, baby
(Alright now, I wanna hear y'all singing with me)

I know you lie 'cause your lips are moving
Tell me, do you think I'm dumb?
I might be young (young!), but I ain't stupid (stupid!)
Talking 'round in circles with your tongue
I gave you bass, you gave me sweet talk
Saying now I'm your number one
But I know you lie 'cause your lips are moving,
Baby, don't you know, I'm done!
