Here's a sample of a song that was written for the explicit purpose of processing some very personal feelings about a very specific experience. Probably not a song I'll ever play out because the verses are too specific to be relatable, but I think everyone can relate to the chorus. We all have to go through life figuring out how to let go of pain and anger. Sometimes it feels better to just throw up a white flag and peace out on a situation that doesn't feel right. Other times it feels more worthwhile to stick around and see what can be salvaged. Either way, you just gotta go with your gut.
1. Right this way ma'am to the finish line
I was never in your lane, you were never in mine
Do what you gotta do
Girl go get that win
Did you do it the right way?
Honey let's not pretend
sometimes you must choose to lose
with a shrug and a grin
2. Come with me friend to the starting line
You know I got your back, I hope you still got mine
Do what we gotta do to begin again
I won't fight for a prize
But I'll fight for a friend
