“Lies”, Chvrches, 2012, available on The Bones of What You Believe (2013)

Songs called “Lies”, 5th in a series

The Scottish synthpop trio chvrches (creatively misspelled to help disambiguate them in web searches; clever, that) released “Lies” as a free download in May 2012; their first official single, “The Mother We Share,” was released four months later. Their debut album The Bones of What You Believe came out in September 2013.

Fun fact: Lead singer Lauren Mayberry has a four-year law degree and a masters in journalism.

Alternate fun fact: When one digs through every song ever recorded called “Lies”, some of them are extremely lame. Not this one, though. I actually like this one.

Lyrics:

Faster, faster, you won’t go far
Shouldn’t leave, feeling faith, we both know why
You got to show me, both knees, cold I lie
Hold me slowly, hide me till I can fly
Always we can sing, we can make time
Old songs, flood and flame, you could be mine
But you got to show me, both knees, skin and bone
Clothe me, throw me, move me – till

I can sell you lies
You can’t get enough
Make a true believer of
Anyone anyone anyone
I can call you up if I feel alone
I can feed your dirty mind
Like I know I know what you are

Icon of symmetry, swallowing sides
Fall down in front of me, follow my eyes
But I’ve got to see you moving, waste no time
Teach me, make me holy – till

I can sell you lies
You can’t get enough
Make a true believer of
Anyone anyone anyone
I can call you up if I feel alone
I can feed your dirty mind
Like I know like, like I know, what you want

Anyone anyone anyone
Anyone anyone anyone
Like I know, like I know, what you want
Like I know, like I know, what you want

I can sell you lies
You can’t get enough
Make a true believer of
Anyone anyone anyone
I can call you up if I feel alone
I can feed your dirty mind
Like I know, like I know, what you want
