THE ROCK SONG OF THE DAY IS: SIMPLE PLAN - YOUR LOVE IS A LIE

Your Love Is A Lie
"Your Love Is a Lie" is the second single by Simple Plan from their self-titled third studio album and was written by drummer Chuck Comeau and songwriter Max Navarro.

The song exists in two versions. One is found on the explicit editions, in which lead singer Pierre Bouvier sings the word fucks in the second verse. In clean versions of the CD and for radio play, the word is omitted and replaced with touches. This is the third song in which Simple Plan uses a swear word, the first was their single "I'm Just a Kid" (hell is often changed to fuck in live performances), and their second being their cover of Cheap Trick's "Surrender" (fucking).

The band flew to Los Angeles to shoot the music video. It was shot on March 6th and was directed/produced by Wayne Isham. The video is a straightforward representation of the song. It intersperses shots of the band playing (later in the video, amid wind-blown blossoms) with shots of Pierre Bouvier's girlfriend, meeting (and having sex) with another man, while Bouvier, betrayed by the woman, waits in agony in his apartment. His apartment has a view of the man's apartment, with a clear view of a bedroom's window, where he sees them have sex.
