Track 8: What You Wanted

For a while, I was hesitant to release this one. It's this weird, sassy song that was one of the first I had written for the record. I almost ditched it so many times because as the years had passed, I had a hard time relating to it anymore. I'm very grateful that I had people around me telling me how dumb that would be. This song has become incredibly sentimental and nostalgic to me. It feels like an encapsulation of unsettled, irrational, impulsive, young emotions. I wrote it in a flurry of frustration and confusion, in torn up tights and pointe shoes sitting on my bedroom floor.
