Was she the girl that's from the video?
You lie, you lie, you lie

Nineteen, too keen
Looking at the game, though
Trying to make a stand for the main squeeze
Please, you don't stand a chance
Stop acting like you can

The camera on you ain't enough?
You're looking for the all round good love
So nothing's gonna get in your way
You're gonna get yourself broke one day

Was she the girl that's from the video?
Stop, stop lying to me
Was she the girl that's from the video?
You lie, you lie, you lie

Nineteen, I see
A body that can move, the hardest in the room
With a quick switch, kiss
Got all eyes on you now
What you gonna do?

The camera loves you, ain't that enough?
You're craving for the whole universe
So nothing's gonna get in your way
You're gonna get yourself broke one day

Was she the girl that's from the video?
Stop, stop lying to me
Was she the girl that's from the video?
You lie, you lie, you lie

Got something to say?
I don't want to hear about it
So you feeling the fame
I hate, the things you're going through now
What you gonna do?

Was she the girl that's from the video?
Stop, stop lying to me
Was she the girl that's from the video?
You lie, you lie, you lie

You lie, you lie, you lie
I can't recognize me

    Song MeaningWhen FKA twigs was 19, she began her career in music videos, dancing in the music videos of Kylie Minogue, Ed Sheeran, and (more famously for) Jessie J. This song is about separating herself from that experience. “I wrote that very shortly after I stopped being a video girl. When I got signed, I stopped dancing — I’d given up that part of my life. I would go out, and somebody would be like, ‘Oh, I recognize you!’ I’d hope it was because they’d heard my music, but they’d say, ‘Are you that girl from the Jessie J video?’” FKA twigs would always answer “no.”
