The gig is up?
The Lying Game theme song(from the TV show)
Songs that describe The Lying Game
This song describes Sutton perfectly, Sutton is more like a player. The part of the song where Adele sings "You've been telling people things you shouldn't be, Like when we creep out when she ain't around, Haven't you heard the rumours?" is exactly like her.
Last Friday Night- Katy Perry
This song describes Sutton/Emma's group of friends perfectly. They all like to party and they end of up doing things that they regret but feel good at the same time. "Pictures of last night, Ended up online, I'm screwed, Oh well, It's a blacked out blur, But I'm pretty sure it ruled"
If I Die Young- The Band Perry
Sutton was about 17 when she died, and that is a very young age to die. "The sharp knife of a short life, oh well"
Love The Way You Lie- Eminem ft. Rihanna
This song describes the scene when Emma finds out Ethan is hiding something from her. "I can't tell you what it really is, I can only tell you what it feels like, And right now it's a steel knife in my windpipe"
Numb- Linkin Park
This song describes how tired Emma is, about pretending to be Sutton. "I'm tired of being what you want me to be"
This song describes Ethan's love for Emma and what he would do for her. "Where you are, I will be there too. Where you go, I will go there too"
Stronger- Kelly Clarkson
This song describes how whenever the Killer tries to bring her down, she comes back up, ready and fighting. Whatever the Killer throws at her, she can return it stronger than ever. "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, Stand a little taller, Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone, What doesn't kill you makes a fighter"
Pictures that describe The Lying Game
The Drama Masks represent deception. Emma uses deception by trying to make people think she is Sutton.
"Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer."
This quote fits "The Lying Game" perfectly because Sutton has made many enemies over the past, any of them could have murdered her, and she would never suspect it because she does not know when they will backstab her.
The killer is always watching Emma's every move. She has to think twice for everything she does.
