“Lips Are Movin'” by Meghan Trainor
Meghan, in this song, seems to suggest that whatever her partner opens his mouth to say is a lie, because she has lost every bit of trust in him. She is at a point where she sees this person as a pathological liar, due to varying incidents where she has been lied to.
In the subsequent verses of the song, Meghan expresses how she is fed up with her partner’s lies and external affairs. As a matter of fact, she is no longer interested in bearing with him, thus she dumps him and tells him to find someone else to lie to. Her decision to leave is so firm because even if her partner tries to appease her with expensive gifts, she won’t budge since she can still sense that he is having another affair.
