THE BRIDGE; a connecting, transitional, or intermediate route or section between two adjoining circumstances.
These two songs are extremely key to my subsequent step as a result of they specific a really righteously indignant and liberating section of my life these final couple of years but additionally how my navigation is lastly pointing in direction of the longer term, no matter which may be or sound like. Honoring the place I’ve been and what I’ve achieved in nation music, but additionally freely shifting ahead.
“The Tree” is a few poisonous “household tree” burning itself to the bottom. Midway via, I notice it’s burning itself down with none of my assist. This tune evokes the ache of exhausting all of your love and time for this individual or ‘entity’ however realizing it’s only a draining, transactional relationship that isn’t nourishing in any wholesome approach. By the top of the tune, I give myself permission to face the solar, plant new seeds the place it’s safer to develop and notice that generally there IS greener grass elsewhere.
“Get the Hell Out of Right here” is the half two to the tree burning. Being fairly actually burned out, this can be a story of me feeling pulled in each route, needing everybody else’s understanding and acceptance however my very own and the way self-destructive that finally turned. I relinquish management of making an attempt to alter everybody’s thoughts or unhealthy conduct and focus alone energy going ahead. Doing the best factor can really feel lonely at instances, however there are extra mates than foes, so I lastly stop making myself one in every of them.
