Bad Liar
Imagine Dragons Lyrics


Oh, hush, my dear, it's been a difficult year
And terrors don't prey on
Innocent victims
Trust me, darling, trust me darling
It's been a loveless year
I'm a man of three fears
Integrity, faith and
Crocodile tears
Trust me, darling, trust me, darling
So look me in the eyes
Tell me what you see
Perfect paradise
Tearing 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
I'm a bad liar, bad liar
Now you know, you're free to go (go)

Did all my dreams never mean one thing?
Does happiness lie in a diamond ring?
Oh, I've been askin'
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, darling)
Oh, I've been askin' for (trust me, darling)
Problems, problems, problems

So look me in the eyes
Tell me what you see
Perfect paradise
Tearing 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

Personally, I think this video is about coming to terms with problems.

I think the boy represents all the bad things/problems that have happened to the girl or maybe representing the bad things/problems she has caused... Maybe even both? He is dressed entirely in black, and looming - following her and giving no reactions to anything she does.

The girl on the other hand is dressed in white (maybe representing hope, innocence or purity?). She constantly moves and looks very confused when the male gives no indication he sees her. Just continues the discount t-posing.

I think her dancing is metaphorical her trying to distract herself or running away from these problems. But the thing is, the male never goes away or even alleviates. It remains a constant looming presence regardless of how hard she tries.

In the small intermission, where she is posed with her leg up, she is no longer dynamic, she is in stasis, much like the male. Also this is the only time we see tge male actually "move". I think this symbolises her trying to hide from her problems but it doesn't work. Then we see her give her most daring performance to which the male begins to levitate higher, signaling that maybe her methods of distraction or fleeing are working, only for him to return back the way he was. No matter how hard she tries , his presence will continue to loom.
In the end, probably realising that the only way to eacape his presence is to accept it (the only way to really escape her problems is to come to terms with them), she bows to the male and he collapses, no longer a looming presence.
Idk... Just a little theory.

Edit: Ahh! Thank you all for your kind comments!

Dear reader,

I don't know you and you don't know me. Probably we are not even living in the same country. We look different. We speak different languages. Maybe we are from entirely different generations. We are just complete strangers.

But there is something that connects us. We both have great taste in music

Thank you for being here. God bless you, whoever you are.
