Lie - Sasha Sloan

The Experience: Please just fake it, pretend to look... So starved for love that you'll take any scrap of recognition no matter how false...
The Vibe: Despair.
The Topic: Self-worth. Identity.
The Tension: Touch me like you did in the beginning (Once upon a time there was love). VS. I want you to lie (But it died and I gave up on feeling that ever again).



Music video: Sasha plays a lonely and unloved woman ignored by her husband and breaking her own and other people's hearts as she fakes her way through online relationships that leave no one happy.

The Meaning of Lie: When love dies it leaves a hole that screams to be filled. If you're strong enough, you can fight for that lost love. But once despair settles in, the best you'll ever muster is being allowed to pretend. It's a sad song. More about the despair than about being spurned. And meant to make us reach out for help.

Ask yourself: Are you the one who's given up on yourself the most?

Album:  Only Child (2020)

LYRICS:

Don't sleep on the couch again, even though you took it for the weekend
Kiss me like you wanna stay, even though you're thinking about leaving

Please just fake it, pretend to look when I'm naked
Don't be honest, promise me that you want this
Say you're lucky, say you're lucky to love me like you used to
Even if it isn't true

I want you to lie, lie right to my face
Want you to put your hands on my waist
Can we just dance till the skies are white?
'Cause I really can't get my heart broken tonight

I want to you to show me there's a future here, even if you've never really seen it
Tell me when you close your eyes I'm all you see, even if you don't dream it

Please just fake it, pretend to look when I'm naked
Don't be honest, promise me that you want this
Say you're lucky, say you're lucky to love me like you used to
Even if it isn't true

I want you to lie, lie right to my face
Want you to put your hands on my waist
Can we just dance till the skies are white?
'Cause I really can't get my heart broken tonight
I want you to

Touch me like you did in the beginning
Baby, just give me another day
Touch me like there isn't something missing
'Cause even if you don't stay

I want you to lie, lie right to my face
Want you to put your hands on my waist
Can we just dance till the skies are white?
'Cause I really can't get my heart broken tonight

I want you to lie, lie right to my face
Want you to put your hands on my waist
Can we just dance till the skies are white?
'Cause I really can't get my heart broken tonight
I want you to

Touch me like you did in the beginning
Baby, just give me another day
Touch me like there isn't something missing
'Cause even if you don't stay

I want you to lie
I want you to lie
