Imagine Dragons - Bad Liar

[Verse 1]
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 (Eyes), tell me what you see (You see)
Perfect paradise (—Dise), tearin' at the seams (Seams)
I wish I could escape it (Escape), I don't wanna fake it
Wish I could erase it (Erase), 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

[Verse 2]
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

Touching on the topic of the tough year lead singer Dan Reynolds and his wife Aja Volkman had following their announcement of their divorce on April 26, 2018, “Bad Liar” is the fourth single from Imagine Dragons‘ fourth studio album Origins. The track was released the day the pair announced they hadn’t actually signed the divorce papers and were dating once again and were back together again, just days before the release of Origins. “Bad Liar” is solely about Dan Reynold’s marriage, and the frontman recruited his ex to help him out with the song, as explained in an interview taking place shortly before it was released, making Aja Volkman a co-writer.
