When you look with your eyes everything seems nice, but if you look twice you could see it’s all lies.
Have you ever heard the song ‘LDN’ from Lily Allen? If not, I suggest you to watch the video first and listen to the lyrics before you read the rest of this post.
You don’t have to read between the lines to grab the meaning of this song. The lyrics say pretty clearly what they mean: ‘When you look with you eyes everything seems nice, but if you look twice you could see it’s all lies.’
This doesn’t only count for the examples you can hear in the lyrics and see in the video, but also for many other things in life which in my opinion is what this song is about. The beginning of the video, in which Lily gets a call, and the end of the video when she gets another call describe a situation in which a lot of girls, and probably also guys, have found themselves in; A bit of attention from the person you have a crush on can make you float high in the sky and suddenly everything around you seems wonderful. Sadly that’s only because you have your rose-colored glasses on and when that person or a situation shows its true colours, it feels like you’re being pushed off your cloud and with your rose-colored glassed ripped off you’re forced to face the sad truth.
Shock, disappointment, pain.
