Love’s Demand #BadLiar #ImagineDragons #Poetry

Love demands your whole heart
If it’s lost the will to love another
The time comes to release it
Both involved are freed

Bad Liar by Imagine Dragons Lyrics

Oh, hush, my dear
It’s been a difficult year
And terrors don’t prey
On innocent victims
Trust me, darlin’, trust me darlin’

It’s been a loveless year
I’m a man of three fears
Integrity, faith and crocodile tears
Trust me, darlin’, trust me, darlin’

So look me in the eyes
Tell me what you see
Perfect paradise
Tearin’ at the seams
I wish I could escape
I don’t wanna fake it
Wish I could erase it
Make your heart believe

But I’m a bad liar, bad liar
Now you know, now you know
That I’m a bad liar, bad liar
Now you know, you’re free to go

Did all my dreams
Never mean one thing?
Does happiness lie in a diamond ring?
Oh, I’ve been askin’ for
Oh, I’ve been askin’ for problems, problems, problems

I wage my war on the world inside
I take my gun to the enemy’s side
Oh, I’ve been askin’ for
(trust me, darlin’)
Oh, I’ve been askin’ for
(trust me, darlin’)
problems, problems, problems

So look me in the eyes
Tell me what you see
Perfect paradise
Tearin’ at the seams
I wish I could escape
I don’t wanna fake it
Wish I could erase it
Make your heart believe

But I’m a bad liar, bad liar
Now you know, now you know
That I’m a bad liar, bad liar
Now you know, you’re free to go

I can’t breathe, I can’t be
I can’t be what you want me to be
Believe me, this one time
Believe me

I’m a bad liar, bad liar
Now you know, now you know
That I’m a bad liar, bad liar
Now you know, you’re free to go

Oh
Please believe me
Please believe me
