This week’s song is Honest, and honestly, I feel weird about writing this blog post. I wish there was a big, deep, emotional story behind this song, because I think the song goes to a big, deep, emotional place. In reality, I wrote this song after the confusing ending to a “thing” that I had with a girl I only knew for about a month. This “thing” ended one day out of the blue, and I was completely blindsided. Most of the lyrics of this song imply that there was a serious long-term relationship that occurred, but I don’t think I can even say that I ever really knew the person that I wrote this song about. In that sense, this is ironically the least honest song on the ep.
With that being said, I think the message of the song holds true. It explores what it might have felt like if the “thing” had been something much more than that, if I had found real love and lost it in an instant without knowing why. I know that there are people out there that have had that experience and it just goes to show that you have to cherish the good things that you have while you have them and don’t take anything for granted. Anyway, I can’t wait to share the whole song with you and I hope you enjoy listening!
