OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO

Update video link



First seen as a contestant on the UK TV show The Voice – where she was taken under the wing of Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson – Beth McCarthy is captured in more naturalistic surroundings for her video for Pretty Lies. It's shot in the singer's hometown of York by local filmmaker Andy Little, filming in the places where Beth found inspiration for the song, and where she wrote it. It shifts between Beth and her dreamlike memories, taking in a narrative of cheating partners and relationship turmoil.

Song Lyrics:

Pretty lies are the easiest ones to believe
I’ve seen the light, it;s not all it’s cracked up to be and I’m
Sleep deprived ‘cause waking up would stop the dream
And I can’t go back, I can’t go back

Love is blind but I see the end as we begin
Tell me why my biggest fear is losing him ‘cause
How can I be so afraid to lose something
That I never had, I never had

Suddenly I can see maybe we are make believing
Suddenly I can see maybe we are just enough
I know I know I’m drunk in love and he’s still sober
I won’t I won’t I won’t give up this won’t be over

Let’s pretend that this is more than just a game
That in the end I’ll be more than just a name
Once again I’ll only have myself to blame
But we can’t go back, we can’t go back

Suddenly I can see maybe we are make believing
Suddenly I can see maybe we are just enough
I know I know I’m drunk in love and he’s still sober
I won’t I won’t I won’t give up this won’t be over

Won’t be over no

Suddenly I can see maybe we are make believing
Suddenly I can see maybe we are just enough
I know I know I’m drunk in love and he’s still sober
I won’t I won’t I won’t give up this won’t be over

It won't be over
