Lie To Me came to be while I was in a toxic relationship; I wrote the song while I was in love with someone who I knew wasn't any good for me. More than anything, although it was rocky I wanted the relationship to work out because I told myself I was content with just being with them. I wanted to write about that time because sometimes you aren’t the strong one, sometimes you have to learn how to be strong, and that experience made me stronger; I just wanted to show the steps I had to take in order to get there because it isn’t always pretty.
I hope this song resonates to the people who are fighting for love, those that are currently happily in love, and those blinded by love.
I wanted whoever saw the video to physically see the “Internal conflict”. The video almost looks like you’re peering inside my mind; You’re hearing and seeing the back and forth conversation I’m having with myself. The elements of the video represent loneliness, emptiness, and pain. My hope for the video is that whoever sees it is touched by those feelings.
