Are You Better Now?
Are You Better?"
I wrote this song a few years back, when I was still new to same sex relationships. The chorus was written about the first man I ever gave myself to. (He didn't deserve it.) Which is one reason that I locked this song away for a while, I didn't like being reminded of him, when I met him is when I began abusing substance... for a while (also the beat wasn't cleared for release.) He was also one of the reasons I got into improv... which led to a lot of opportunity... it was a bittersweet encounter. I try to stay grateful either way. Anyways... My buddy @triltsiboymusic had this beat from Jay Miner called "Sticky" that he said he thought would fit the song. It changed the mood a bit (in a good way) and I added the Second Verse. "Show a bitch your scars, baby. Show a bitch your feelings" -- I feel like it captures the evolution of romantic entanglement/substance abuse, we always want more... they always want less. We always want to see the scars.
I like that there is no Third Verse, so we never know what happens betwixt the lovers. Do they keep the "condo shaking ooo all night?" Or do they go their separate ways and never see one another again. "Better now? Are You Better?" You decide. #LinkInBio
