“In our society today, we are so consumed with fame, wealth, and popularity. We rely on our social media followers to let us know how loved we are. We swipe right, not to find a decent human being we could possibly see ourselves with, but instead whoever is the hottest. It’s a “me” society, and I feel a lot of us, especially myself, feel a little lost in this new culture that has been created by the internet. I consider myself a little old fashioned and a hopeless romantic, and I feel today that is fading. One night stands and booty calls replace romantic dates while beer pong and red cups replace the intimacy of buying someone a drink and getting to know one another. I wrote this song in hopes others would relate and understand that even if the world does one thing, you do not have to play follow the leader. I remember looking back as I was writing and remembering who I was before college, and drew upon that for inspiration on who I desire to be. Sometimes there is a point in your life where everything you used to be becomes everything you wish to be and I was in that moment, looking back on the version of myself who didn’t care if my values and expectations weren’t the norm. In the end I came to a question that was in the back of my brain as I was trying to juggle the line between being utterly and bravely yourself and being someone who would fit in… ‘Is there anybody out there like me’?”
