Drew Schueler’s I’d Be Lying, is an emotional pop song about missing the best parts of the worst people. It’s written from the perspective of someone who knows they should never care about someone who was bad for them, but sometimes they do. The song is about the complexity of human behavior and how it’s impossible to forget those who were once a big part of your life.
When we only see the best in people, we do ourselves a disservice. We overlook their faults, which means we’re not getting the whole picture. Focusing on the good means we’re not seeing the bad, and that’s a problem because it means we can’t rely on them to be there for us when we need them.
