“I wrote both the songs on my new mixtape, my feelings hurt, at a time when I felt like I just couldn’t win when it came to anything emotional in my life. It was one thing after another, getting to the point where I was like, “If I just didn’t feel anything, this would be so much easier.”
“Bourbon,” the song I am sharing with you today, was written out of the frustration of being stuck in a relationship that always felt like it was close to ending. Although I had initiated it and wanted the relationship to be over, I still felt like it was lacking closure.
I wanted to capture that helpless yet uncaring vibe when I was writing the songs for this mixtape. Yeah, they’re super emo, but don’t you also feel badass when you’ve got “Bourbon” blaring?
my feelings hurt focuses on emotional exhaustion and being resigned from the full extent of your feelings and the consequences they bring.
I hope that you are able to relate and find comfort in knowing that you’re not the only one experiencing these emotions as you listen.”
