So I was thinking about Meghan Trainor’s song “Lips Are Movin'” and I naturally had the hook of “I know you’re lyin’, ’cause you’re lips are movin'” stuck in my head. I hadn’t really actually thought what she was saying, just that it was a catchy phrase. Then I realized she’s literally telling the person that if they’re lips are moving (i.e. whenever they are talking) they’re just lying. Like, they never speak the truth and they never say anything honest.
I know that’s kind of an obvious revelation, but it just randomly dawned on me while I was driving somewhere and realized the song, as upbeat as it sounds, is a lot harsher and angrier than I originally thought. I like it a little more now.
