“I’d Lie” Song Analysis — Episode 153 of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast

Id Lie Taylor Swift

We’d be lying if we said we didn’t wish Taylor had put “I’d Lie” on an album! In Episode 153 of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast, we discuss a song from Taylor’s early days, “I’d Lie.” Taylor wrote this song of unrequited love for a high school talent show and never included it on an album. Although it’s technically unreleased, Taylor did perform it at a Billboard event, so it’s fair game for discussion! Please let us know what you think of “I’d Lie.” Happy listening!

Main Discussion: “I’d Lie” Song Analysis
