Song Commentary

SUGAR HIGH
Sugar High captures the rush of excitement that comes with new love. Written in the beginning stages of my relationship with my now husband after he ate an entire bag of sour patch kids. Seeing his goofy sugar high for the first time inspired this song.

CARTWHEELS
I’ve definitely been the kind of girl that refuses to give up and does everything in her power to salvage a relationship, even when it’s passed the point of saving. Cartwheels shows both vulnerability and stubbornness, determination in defeat. I’m a firm believer of “it ain’t over ‘til it’s over” but it doesn’t always serve me.

SPLINTER
Passed relationships have a way of sticking with you long after they’re over like a Splinter. The big and little things seem impossible to forget but everything we go through can be viewed as a learning experience.

EVERY SINNER NEEDS A SAINT
Every sinner needs a saint is a reminder that everybody needs somebody and we don’t have to go through life alone. It’s okay to let others come alongside you and help you carry the weight when times are hard. I’m so grateful for my friends in Southern Call who co-wrote the song and are singing with me.

COME AROUND
Unrequited love is hard, especially when it’s between friends. I value brutal honesty, even if it breaks my heart. Mixed signals are so difficult to maneuver. Come around is a cry for clarity.

WILDFIRE MIND
Wildfire Mind tells a story about a free spirited woman who is unapologetically herself. My favorite line in the song is “Light her up and watch her fly” and it signifies that women are capable of anything they set their minds to.

SWAY
It’s in the little, everyday things that make a marriage so special. The comfort in knowing at the end of the day, through the good and the bad, you have your person to come home to.

SHOTGUN
Shotgun is about letting your head take a backseat and giving in to what your heart wants, even if your gut tells you it might not be the best idea.

ALREADY GONE
Already Gone is a run for freedom and finding self respect. Honoring your self worth and not staying in a relationship that is no longer serving you.

MY HEART AND MY HEAD
I sometimes wrestle with trying to do the “right thing”. I write pro’s and con’s lists and weigh my decisions thoroughly. My Heart and My Head is about the fight between what your mind thinks makes sense and what your emotions are telling you.
