I know this song begins with ‘The’, but it’s not really a word, is it? I also really didn’t want my ‘T’ post to begin with ‘The’. The Heart Never Lies was released as an EP in 2008 rather than a single or an album track. I think this was around the time that I rediscovered McFly, and although I’d heard The Heart Never Lies previously, it wasn’t until a few years after its release that I listened to it properly.

The way that I interpret it is that it’s written about the friendships within the band, but they’ve made it look like they’re singing about a lover. Although it may not look like it at the moment, McFly are great friends, almost like brothers, I’d say. This song epitomises that friendship. The video can be found at the bottom of the blog.
