You know an episode of The Lying Game with a dance involved, even of the father-daughter variety, is bound to have some awesome tunes. TLG didn’t disappoint with the musical selection, and once again, we find ourselves playing these songs over and over again. Listen to some of our favorites below.

Music moment: Emma wakes up in Sutton’s bed
Song: "The City That Sleeps"
Artist: Jessica Tonder
Lyrics:
When I wake up, I will wake up

I’ve been sleeping far too long

I will raise up to clean my days up

Well, baby good luck

You’re coming home

Final hours, captivating

Reaching for the light to come

So revealing for my heart beating

There’s just so much more to see

See the flashing lights screaming signs so bright

Honey, honey, honey, honey, honey

Music moment: Mads dances with her ballet teacher, Eduardo
Song: “Nutcracker Suite”

Music moment: Emma and Laurel drive to school

Song: “Don't Stop Now”

Artist: Vizzionkwest

Lyrics:

People change, I heard you say

You kiss my face and walked away

I’m calling you up to ask you why

‘Cause we could’ve changed this last goodbye

I’m saying all we were saving

Love’s not disaster forever after

Don’t stop now, I think we can turn this thing around

So baby, don’t stop now, I think we can turn this game around

 

 

Music moment: Emma apologizes to Nisha for punching her

Song: “Throw Me a Line”

Artist: IAMEVE

Lyrics:

There’s a big black hole in me in the center

Yelling help, please help, please help

It’s a dead end street in the heart of winter

Where only the wicked walk, where only the wicked walk, where only the wicked walk

There is magic in the city, she’s drowning in it quickly

Get there in time, throw me a line

Someone be kind

There’s a desert oasis where the sun has many faces

So there’s water on the moon

Throw me a line

Music moment: Mads and Char hang by the pool

Song: “It's Not Complicated ”

Artist: Miss Mercury

Lyrics:

Will I ever change this inability to arrange my life

Give me time, give me time

Will I overcome the sense I’m going to come undone

Don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me

Just bring me back to you, I want to feel you calling me across this empty sea

Just bring me back to you, it’s not a complicated issue

Just bring me back to you

Whatever happened to the promise we made

 

 

Music moment: Emma and Ethan have a clandestine dance lesson in a secluded spot

Song: “Letting Go ”

Artist: Sonia and Oskar

Lyrics:

Breathe, in and out again
Watch it all begin
Become a cell in this body now
Gone gone gone is the phobia
Far, far, far, is the memory
Of pain, pain, pain
Can’t remember who you are
Gone gone gone is the phobia
Far, far, far, is the memory
Of pain, pain, pain
Can’t remember who you are
You’re letting go letting go letting go (oh oh oh oh oh oh)

Music moment: Ethan teaches Emma to dance in the country club

Song: “11/22”

Artist: Buddy

Lyrics:

Strangle your hold
Don't let me go
Until I want what you want
Pray for the strength
(To) keep it in place
Promise to God you won't
I've got faith in you to lose yours in me
Like you say though before you go
"I should probably be letting you go"
Acting the part

(Was) never that hard
Memorize the lines on your face now
I've got faith in you to lose all of mine
Like you say though before you go
"I should probably be letting you go"

 

 

Music moment: Emma arrives at the country club to meet Ethan

Song: “All She Could Be”

Artist: Sarah Solovay

Lyrics:

She’s gorgeous, the picture of perfection,
Every guy wants her to be his girlfriend,
Every girl longs to be her reflection
And she knows these two things…. 
When she smiles it lights up the whole world,
When she wants she flashes her shiny pearls,
She drops out of high school, and becomes a model,
Lives her whole life getting stuff for free…. 
Well she’s smart, but she doesn’t do a thing,
She could say a lot, but she don’t, she keeps her mouth shut,
In her heart, she knows she’s got more to bring,
She could love a lot, but she don’t she keeps her heart shut,
But what if she could open it up… 
She was the prom queen, 
Yeah, she was that girl,
So pretty but so mean,
Envied by the whole world… 
Goes through guys like lattes,
Throws one out every morning,
Looking for love,
But not breaking her brick wall for anyone. 
She sleeps in the day and lives in the night,
Parties till morning, cause fake friends make it all right,
Oh baby, what happens when your eighty,
And your pretty face has gone away…. 
Well she’s smart, but she doesn’t do a thing,
She could say a lot, but she don’t, she keeps her mouth shut,
In her heart, she knows she’s got more to bring,
She could love a lot, but she don’t she keeps her heart shut,

But what if she could open it up… 

 

 

Music moment: The girls pose for photos with their dads upon arrival at the father-daughter dance

Song: “Wind Me Up”

Artist: Taxi Doll

Lyrics:
I don’t know that this urge is my love of control

But I’m letting it go, I’ll leave it behind me

I’m gonna leave it behind me

And I don’t know why it’s so easy to try

And it can’t let it fly

You have a way to remind me, another way to remind me

It’s your way, it gets to me

As you wind me up and you set me free

‘Cause you come to me with it all, I don’t need no other

Music moment: Mads and her dad argue about Thayer at the dance

Song: “Was It”

Artist: Malbec

Lyrics:

I'm lying here on the floor
Thinking out loud to walls,
Breathing slow and drawing fast
Conclusions that could never last,
If? When? Why? What? 
How much have we got?
Dreams are sung to help me on,
God, oh god, what have I done?
What have I done?
Was it for me? Was it for you?
Was I too ignorant to choose?
Was it the will? Was it my way?
Was it a foolish thing to say?
Was it the heart? Was it the start?
Was it the time we spent apart?
Was it goodbye? Was it the lies?
Would've been easier not to try..
Was it for me? Was it for you?
What can we do?


 

Music moment: Emma dances with Sutton's father, Ted, at the father-daughter dance
Song: “Terrified”
Artist: Jordyn Kayne

Lyrics:

I’m moving fast while the world’s standing still

Creating wounds only I can heal

Why was it broken from the start

And I give it a chance to fall apart

I don’t’ remember asking for this

Asking for you or for that first kiss

Now I can’t breathe, now the rain’s falling down

And I’m ripped at the seams

Feels like I’m drowning in here with my tears

Reveal more than fears ‘cause I’m terrified

Who’s gonna save me when the tide pulls me out

If I have to fight I might need your help

When you’re ‘bout to give up

I’m the one who will pull you through

Heroes together, save the world, me and you

Nothing in life ever comes without risk

Can’t look back now ‘cause of that first kiss

Music moment: Emma recognizes Nisha’s famous football-playing father

Song: “Never Look Back ”

Artist: John Garrison

Lyrics:

A million come and gone

All narrowed down to one

The search is all over

I’m looking for no one

Let’s run and never look back

Let’s run and never look back

Let’s run, now I need no other

Let’s tear down the walls of this old town

And leave it all for the rest to run around and around

Feel it’s time with this fire inside

While we burn so bright that it feels so right
