Lie

>> Thursday, November 20, 2008

David Cook's self-titled album is out now! For the Filipinos, the album is PhP 430, same price as Archuleta's. I have bought and spent my salary on Archie's album (plus Josh's special two-disc cd). I haven't bought Cookie's yet, which means I need to get to an ATM quick so I can withdraw and get my hands on that Cookie album.

BTW, Michael Johns is coming out with an album too. He said it'll be released by March of 2009. OHYEAH.

Back to the Cookie dough.

I'm drawn to the soft side of Cookie, as Lie and A Daily AntheM top my list of favorite songs from the album. The emotion put into the album touches your the soul. The sincerity on the lyrics is very evident. Most of his songs are co-written by him. All of his songs are based from personal experiences. Cook is definitely on his way of producing his own songs.

The most mellow song in the album is Lie. It has a nice ring to it, the melody makes you want to imagine a story that the song evokes. What I like about the lyrics is that deviates from the usual heart-broken lyrics of boo-hoo-you-broke-my-heart-and-i-can't-move-on. There is a sense of maturity in those words. My favorite lines are in the chorus.

The video was taken from his album launch at Hard Rock Cafe last November 18. The performance was also heard on his official website, davidcookofficial.com



Lie
David Cook
Lyrics from david-cook.org

You whisper that that you were getting tired
Got a look in your eye, looks a lot like goodbye
Hold on to your secrets tonight
I don’t want to know
I’m okay with this silence
It’s truth that I don’t want to end

You’re hiding regret in your smile
There’s a storm in your eyes I’ve seen coming for a while
Hang onto the past tense tonight
Don’t say a word
I’m okay with the quiet
The truth is going to change everything

So lie to me and tell me that it’s going to be all right.
So lie to me and tell me we’re going to make it through the night.
I don’t mind if you wait before you tear me apart
Look me in the eye
Lie, lie, lie
Lie, lie, lie


I know that there’s no turning back
If we put too much light on this we’ll see through all the cracks
Let’s stay in the dark one more night
Don’t want to know
I’m okay with the silence
It’s truth that I don’t want to end

So lie to me and tell me that it’s going to be all right
So lie to me and tell me that we’ll make it through the night
I don’t mind if you wait before you tear me apart
So look me in the eye and lie, lie, lie

Don’t want to believe in this ending
Let the cameras roll on
Keep pretending
Tomorrow’s all wrong if you walk away
Just stay.

So lie to me and tell me that it’s going to be okay
So lie to me and tel me that we’ll make it through the day
I don’t mind if you wait before you tear me apart.
So look me in the eye and lie, lie, lie
