Favorite Lyric Friday – Molly Thomason’s “People Lie”

YouTube really is fantastic. You can start on one great artist, and then stumble upon someone brand new and utterly delightful. Case in point – Molly Thomason – 17-year old musical over-achiever and her song  “People Lie”. The title and the lyrics are pretty self-explanatory, and I kind of love the unaffected harshness of it. It’s a happy-go-lucky break-up song. Here’s a sampling:

“Wipe your eyes and crawl back in that shell
The one I wrenched you out of
When I realized your heart is a well
And I drank, and I drank
But I didn’t know how to thank you

So I drank, and I drank
But I didn’t know how to thank you
So I promised you gold, myrrh, and frankincense
Promised eternal love and joy when you need it to get by
But sometimes people lie…”

17 years old, people!  If Molly is any indication of what’s up-and-coming for east coast music, I think we’ll be continuing down a pretty great path.
