Released: May 18th, 2017
LYRICS

I was walking down the street the other day
Tryna distract myself
But then I see your face
Oh wait, that’s someone else
Tryna play it coy
Tryna make it disappear
But just like the battle of Troy
There’s nothing subtle here
In my room there’s a king size space
Bigger than it used to be
If you want you can rent that place
Call me an amenity
Even if it’s in my dreams

Ooh you’re taking up a fraction of my mind
Ooooh every time I watch you serpentine

Oh I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
Oh tryin’, I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
Not to think about you
No, no, no, no
Not to think about you
No, no, no, no
Oh I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
Oh tryin’, I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
Not to give in to you
No, no, no, no
Not to give in to you
No, no, no, no

With my feelings on fire
Guess I’m a bad liar

I see how your attention builds
It’s like looking in a mirror
Your touch like a happy pill
But still all we do is fear
What could possibly happen next?
Can we focus on the love?
Paint my kiss across your chest
Be the art, I’ll be the brush

Ooh you’re taking up a fraction of my mind
Ooooh every time I watch you serpentine

Oh I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
Oh tryin’, I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
Not to think about you
No, no, no, no
Not to think about you
No, no, no, no
Oh I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
Oh tryin’, I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
Not to give in to you
No, no, no, no
Not to give in to you
No, no, no, no

With my feelings on fire
Guess I’m a bad liar

And oh baby let’s make reality, actuality, a reality
Oh baby let’s make reality, actuality, a reality

Oh, oh, I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
Oh tryin’, I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
Not to think about you
No, no, no, no
Not to think about you
No, no, no, no
Oh I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
Oh tryin’, I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’
Not to give in to you
No, no, no, no
Not to give in to you
No, no, no, no

With my feelings on fire
Guess I’m a bad liar

Fresh off the success of 13 Reasons Why, Selena Gomez returns to the music world with “Bad Liar,” an understated and sweet track co-written with collaborators Justin Tranter and Julia Michaels.

“Bad Liar” features an interpolation of a classic groove by the Talking Heads (Tina Weymouth’s bass line from “Psycho Killer”). In an interview with Variety, Tranter shared, “Selena and Julia are Talking Heads-obsessed, so when we all got together in one room, Julia suggested, ‘Why don’t we just write over the bassline from ‘Psycho Killer?’ and we were all going, ‘That sounds great!'” Tranter also shared the direction of the Selena Gomez album in progress, “Selena is where she always is, ahead of the f-ing curve… The music is very sexy, very smart and right where we left off the last time.”

With its Regina Spektor-tinged vocals and feel-good rhythm, Selena’s new song is the perfect transition from Spring to Summer.
