“All Your Lies” is about realizing you got yourself into a relationship that wasn’t serving you anymore and taking your power back. It can be a really hard pattern to break out of — learning how to not make yourself small in order to make other people feel comfortable. I’ve done that shit for years and I finally feel like I’m cutting the tethers to that belief system by allowing my authenticity to shine. You will never be “too bright” for the right people–don’t dim your light for anyone” – Lexi Norton
“This is probably the deepest and most epic song I’ve ever been a part of. Lexi from Echos is one of my favorite songwriters/vocalists ever so I feel blessed to work with her.” -Kai Wachi
