With this in your face yet inspiring blend of melodies and lyrics, the talented artist embraces the beauty that at times lies in being alone with who you are instead of being with bad company.

The track reminds us that we are not owned and we do not own anybody, our freedom is ours and we can do with it whatever we please. We can be someone or we can be alone, but it must be what’s best for ourselves and for our happiness. So listen closely and let the verses teach something amazing and much needed. Enjoy!
“I was having a heart to heart with my friend in the toilet about my love life. As I finished the conversation, a woman came out the cubical and told she had overheard everything” she explains, “The woman said to me “stop trying to have ownership over somebody…you crave freedom so take it”. She was right, I needed to be on my own. It was the first time I had considered it, and this song was crucial for me to write. It’s the most honest song I’ve ever written”
