  1. One To Follow

From the albums One To Follow and HandsLikeGold

I wrote and recorded “One To Follow” all in one night, three weeks ago, while live-streaming on Instagram. It was a crazy experience writing a song that is so personal in front of people. Continuing my 2018 goal of spontaneity, I decided to take this a step further and actually put it out. One to Follow is a deeply personal song about changing who you are to fit in and feel accepted.

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
You made it look so easy to fit in
I Idolized you as a kid
bad decisions, choices I wouldn’t have made
if you hadn’t shown me the way

[Pre Chorus]
Blame the fall on all the hands that couldn’t hold your weight
its not my fault that your losing your grip

[Chorus]
you were never meant to be the one to follow
your just as lost as me
gave you the power
my hollow hero, you’re a fake
I ain’t going down wit ya no no
I ain’t going down with you no more
I ain’t going down wit ya no no
you were never meant to be the one to follow

[Verse 2]
Smoking and driving
I just wanna make you proud
almost crashed the fucking car
Home in bed that night I had a moment
I actually said the words out loud
this isn’t me

[Pre Chorus 2]
Curse my name, you only leave disaster in your wake
It’s not my fault you don’t know what’s at stake

[Chorus]
you were never meant to be the one to follow
your just as lost as me
gave you the power
my hollow hero, you’re a fake
I ain’t going down wit ya no no
I ain’t going down with you no more
I ain’t going down wit ya no no
I ain’t going down with you no more
I ain’t going down wit ya no no
I ain’t going down with you no more
I ain’t going down wit ya no no
you were never meant to be the one to follow

[Verse 3]
too many times you told me so and that was it
I followed you into the depths
I tip-toed with your demons
in your shadow I was a mess
that day you had a seizure
I saw you almost die
I broke down in the hospital
you laughed at my when I cried
False Prophet

You’re out of control
I know your stopping for no one , zoning
you just go through the motions
tell me the questions loaded
manipulate everyone around you and you know it
you just reap what you sew and
no one’s safe when your home
