We forget our steeliness when we fall. Fall in love, or equivalent. Seems alright to be someone else, just for a while. But it’s not, we find out. From that compromise, of the most basic of your makeup, things just don’t feel the same anymore.
“Love me for me and if you won’t, I will.”
Said HAYL: “A boy I briefly dated was convinced I needed his help to be a better version of myself. Everything he wanted to change about me was everything I loved most. Fully embracing who I was, flaws and all, felt more important than compromising to fit his agenda, so obviously I ended it. People will have opinions of you. Only you get to decide which ones count. “I Will” is a reminder you should never change for anyone—you are deserving of love no matter what.”
Nashville-based indie pop artist and songwriter, HAYL, strives for you to feel the realness of life with her music. Her emotionally-rich lyrics express to listeners the braveness of vulnerability.
Love isn’t a right for the other. It’s a beginning of your freedom, your way.
And no one else.
