Lying From You Lyrics - Linkin Park

Review The Song (7)



When I pretend everything is what I want it to be
I look exactly like what you had always wanted to see
When I pretend, I can forget about the criminal I am
Stealing second after second just cause I know I can but
I can't pretend this is the way it'll stay I'm just
(trying to bend the truth)
I can't pretend I'm who you want me to be, so I'm

[Chorus:]
(Lying my way from you)
No no turning back now
(I wanna be pushed aside so let me go)
No no turning back now
(Let me take back my life,I'd rather be all alone)
No turning back now
(Anywhere on my own cause I can see)
No no turning back now
sponsored links
(The very worst part of you is me)

I remember what they taught to me
Remember condescending talk of who I ought to be
Remember listening to all of that and this again
So I pretended up a person who was fittin' in
And now you think this person really is me and I'm
(Trying to bend the truth)
But the more I push the more I'm pulling away 'cause I'm

[Chorus:]
(Lying my way from you)
No no turning back now
(I wanna be pushed aside so let me go)
No no turning back now
(Let me take back my life I'd rather be all alone)
No turning back now
(Anywhere on my own cause I can see)
No no turning back now
(The very worst part of you)
(The very worst part of you is ME)

This isn't what I wanted to be, I never thought that what I said would
have you running from me
Like This
This isn't what I wanted to be, I never thought that what I said would
have you running from me
Like This
This isn't what I wanted to be, I never thought that what I said would
have you running from me
Like This
This isn't what I wanted to be, I never thought that what I said would
have you running from me
Like This

[Chorus:]
(You)
No turning back now
(I wanna be pushed aside so let me go)
No no turning back now
(Let me take back my life I'd rather be all alone)
No turning back now
(Anywhere on my own cause I can see)
No no turning back now
(The very worst part of you)
(The very worst part of you is me)

It can be "Can't". | Reviewer: Idiots_Everywhere | 8/15/13

Well, a lot of people saying that is not "can't" is "can", actually that's true, the official lyrics say "I can forget about the criminal I am".

The point is that "I can't forget about the criminal I am" makes sense, it does because, EVEN when he pretends to be another person, he CAN'T forget about who he really is, and when he realises that, he is lying his way from her.

The fact is that he really knows who he is, so i guess that both "I can" and "I can't" could fit on this song, depends on interpretation.

Lying From You | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/18/09

This song is about a guy whose parents belittled him relentlessly as a child, for never meeting their expectations of who they thought he should be. In my opinion, severe emotional abuse/trauma can cause a person to be narcissitic. Narcissim is a very serious mental disorder that renders an individual incapable of loving/lack of emotions. In order for this guy to cope with life as an adult he must conform to others in order to "receive" positive feedback back. Now to the guy in the song, if he had a choose of all the masks he has worn or can wear, it is this particular mask that she wants/desires/loves/treasures and by chance it also happens to be the one he would choose, maybe the one HE likes best in his fantasy world that he lives in. The girl, his victim, falls in love with a fraud! He knows he is a criminal, stealing her love just as a means to ensure his survival. Recall the emotional abuse as a child. Any alternative to constant feedback results in unbearable flashbacks. So....in conclusion, it is this girl that makes him most aware of his "freakish" nature only stemming from the mutual love of that particular "mask" He clearly sees only through her what HE has become and who HE is. Hence it disgusts him and the last person he doesn't want to accept him would be HIMSELF. So even at the cost of being alone he begins lying himself away from her via another more undesirable "mask". Yet, when he suceeds at running her off it is his narcissim again kicking in getting pissed at her because she is taking away his ideal of himself and her approval. DOUBLE WHAMMY!!!In conclusion, with this said girl he is worse off for having ever met her. She actually brought him out of his fanatasy world a world in which he only knows as reality. The song is ALL ABOUT HIM, not love at all.

great song | Reviewer: dustin | 1/7/09

this is a great song. only thing is...the lyrics in the Meteora Album Booklet post: "When I pretend, I CAN forget about the criminal I am..."
which makes more sense, of course.
But, as far as i know, everything else is right.

no the lyrics are not accurate | Reviewer: th3g1vr | 8/25/08

I don't know why, but all of the major (unofficial) lyrics sites have the lyrics wrong for this song. it's as if someone heard them wrong, and the other sites just copied the wrong lyrics (which btw is plagiarism). from listening to the song, (1) they don't say "can't forget about...", they clearly say "can"- it should be obvious- I don't see how it's even possible to mishear that part. (2) anyone who can speak English should know that "can't" doesn't make any sense whatsoever in that context- people pretend *so* they *can* forget, for crying out loud. I find it highly absurd that most of these lyrics sites got it wrong, if only in light of those two things alone. here's the official lyrics, which confirms what should have been obvious anyway: http://linkinpark.com/lyrics/Albums/meteora-1#4
