By Yours Truly
I’m not the kind of person to do cover songs but when I heard this song how many months ago that was and then bought my guitar, I knew that this was the song that I would want to cover one day. That day didn’t come until a little after January where a lot of bad things started or should I say continued to happen in my life. When I revisited the song (as in listened to it) I felt like I was the lady in the song that Billie was singing about. That’s when I knew it was the right time for me to get out my guitar and start singing away.
I find music therapeutic. I’m not really the kind of person who understands my own mind unless I talk it out, sing it out or write it out. I can’t just sit there and think about things for hours on end like I can when I’m being creative in my art. This song was particularly helpful because I didn’t need to work out everything on my own. It was kind of already there. Yes, Billie may or may not have another intention of what the song actually means or why she wrote it, but for me it was who I was at the time. I won’t explain it just because I still like the idea of certain songs being left open for interpretation but I think you will be able to hear what I was thinking or feeling at the time this video was recorded.
I hope you enjoy it!
