Songfacts®:

  • On "Boy's A Liar," PinkPantheress talks about her feelings for a shallow romantic interest. The boy is playing with her emotions and making her feel insecure.

    She only seems to appeal to him when she's plastered with makeup.

    Because you only want to hold me when I'm looking good enough

    PinkPantheress won't believe he genuinely loves her until he proposes.

    Can you take a look inside your heart, is there any room for me?
    I won't have to hold my breath till you get down on one knee


    On the hook, the singer concludes that the boy's dishonesty stops them from truly connecting.

    The boy's a liar, the boy's a liar
    He doesn't see ya, you're not looking at me, boy
  • PinkPantheress wrote "Boy's A Liar" herself. She co-produced it with Mura Masa, marking her second collaboration with the British music producer. Back in February 2022, she performed on his track "Bbycakes" along with Lil Uzi Vert and Shygirl.
  • PinkPantheress posted a snippet of a sped-up version a few days before dropping "Boy's A Liar." It went viral, creating hype before the song's release on November 30, 2022.
