Love Is A Lie – Creating Music and Lyrics with RudyWade

  • Post author:

RudyWade, the rising star in the realm of alternative pop, unveiled his debut album, “Love is a Lie,” in August, showcasing a captivating fusion of musical genres such as Alternative Pop, Indie Pop, Hyperpop, and a touch of 80s Pop across its 7 tracks. In the spotlight for this blog post is the album’s title track, “Love is a Lie.”

The creation of “Love is a Lie” traces back to December 1st, 2021, at Team Studios in Burlington, Massachusetts, just outside Boston, under the expert guidance of Jon Linger (lead engineer at MASTR Productions). The creative process was heavily influenced by Tory Lanez’s song “Lady of Namek” from his 80s-inspired album, “Alone at Prom,” providing the initial spark for Jon and Rudy’s collaborative venture.

As they headed to the studio, fueled by the vibes of Tory Lanez’s 80s sound, the duo envisioned crafting a record that echoed the nostalgic essence of that particular track. The session kicked off with Jon constructing the instrumental groundwork from scratch, complemented by Rudy’s simultaneous lyric-writing and melody creation. Within an hour, Rudy laid down vocals that seamlessly melded with the beat. By the session’s end, Jon skillfully mixed and mastered the track, bringing their vision to life.

Delving into the lyrics, “Love is a Lie” narrates the tale of a toxic relationship, where the protagonist yearns to break free from the toxicity but finds that they cannot escape. The regretful sentiment of wishing they had never crossed paths permeates the narrative. In the second verse, the emotional strain is palpable through lines like “Put all of my trust in you, never thought you’d hurt me too,” illustrating the heartbreak and betrayal experienced by the main character.

Lyrics: Love is a Lie – RudyWade

[Chorus]

I’ll say this:
Love is a lie (lie)
And I’ve been dying inside (side)
Can’t get you out of my mind (mind)
So in my head I reside (side)

I spent all my nights thinkin’ about my regrets
Some days I’m wishin’ that we wouldn’t ever have met
No love inside our story, baby, I’m half to death
So please can you leave my life

[Verse 1]

I’m cold and I’m broken inside, can’t lie
No heart and a hard one to hold, goodbye
Truth told and I lost all my trust, oh why
Cutting deep like you’re using a knife
And it feels like I’m buried alive
Made mistakes in my past I despise
You bring pain on my soul, I realize
I’m encaged to your love like we’re tied

[Verse 2]

My heart says it’s not alright
My mind says I can’t decide
And I changed in spite my spite
I was holding on too tight
Never lost a hold of me
But I lost a hold of you
Put all of my trust in you
Never thought you’d hurt me too
How you gonna go and move like that?
How’m I s’posed to keep my heart intact?
Then you went around and turned your back
Then you went around and turned your back

[Chorus]

I’ll say this:
Love is a lie (lie)
And I’ve been dying inside (side)
Can’t get you out of my mind (mind)
So in my head I reside (side)

I spent all my nights thinkin’ about my regrets
Some days I’m wishin’ that we wouldn’t ever have met
No love inside our story, baby, I’m half to death
So please can you leave my life

For those immersed in the melancholy of 80s heartbreak, this track is a poignant anthem. The song officially made its streaming platform debut on August 18th, 2023, and has since garnered an impressive 100,000 streams, solidifying RudyWade’s foothold in the alternative pop scene.
