obsessed xx: Jack Peñate “No One Lied”

I’ll never forget when I heard this song for the first time. I was super busy, so much was going on, a lot of people were talking around me, and then all at once, it seemed like everything stopped and everyone fell silent. My brain and heart just linked and were consumed by the absolute, overwhelming beauty of this song. This song is perfect in every way: lyrically, the way it starts soft and with a siren, the builds and drops, the truthful passion in his voice. Songs like this not only send act as strong reminder of why I love music so much, but also reminds me of why I want to make a better effort to make my own. This is the perfect listen for the end of my day today. The video below for “No One Lied” by Jack Peñate was directed by Dani Castro. The video was shot and recorded live in one take at home on the 19th of January. If you love it as much as I do, you can download it for free here.


Lyrics to “No One Lied”:
I’m so happy, think I could cry
Then the moment is lost to the sky
In the silence something is heard
Brings us back down crashing to earth

Heaven is a place
No one lied
It’s rushing through your veins
Flooding your eyes

She’s so worried the end is in sight
She could stay there for the rest her life
A peculiar pain within her arose
As the perfect frame couldn’t be froze

Heaven is a place
No one lied
It’s rushing through your veins
Flooding your eyes
It’s hidden in your brain
The sweetest surprise

We’ll be gone soon

Heaven is a place
No one lied
It’s rushing through your veins
Flooding your eyes
It’s hidden in your brain
The sweetest surprise
The mystery remains
Until we die
xx
