LynLynSays’ Love Songs: “Sincerity Is Scary” By The 1975

This really isn’t much of a love song, but rather a brutally honest example of what would happen if people stop telling lies and instead were actually authentic and real.

The 1975 are making a statement in this song about how we create roles and identities that are separate from who we truly are. We can thank social media for this. Yet, in this song, Matt wonders what would happen if people were just honest with one another. Well, there’s some pros and cons when you start being honest with a person and that’s what the lyrics suggest in this song.

However, I do think Matt brings up a good point about being vulnerable in a relationship. Sometimes we think vulnerability is a sign of weakness, but it actually isn’t. When you are vulnerable to someone, you are letting your guard down and letting them into your world. This sense of vulnerability is a way to show your sincerity towards someone because you are being honest and “real.” Yet, it is scary to show that side of yourself because you aren’t sure whether or not the other person will accept you or not.

Sincerity is needed within a relationship so that you and your partner can grow and mature together. If you can’t be sincere, then there will always be roadblocks in your relationship because you can’t openly communicate with your partner about your emotions and issues.

Why can’t we be friends, when we are lovers?
‘Cause it always ends with us hating each other
Instead of calling me out you should be pulling me in
I’ve just got one more thing to say
