LYRICS
If you would’ve told me
I’d throw away my purity
ring in the middle of the airport
My younger self would laugh
would never believe that
It’s against everything we stood for
She’d hate that I smoke weed
and cuss frequently
and she’d try to convert
everyone I call a bestie
You’ll throw shots into the dark
Blackout at a bar
There will be good and then there will be bad parts

Someday you’ll kiss a girl and you’ll panic
Some guy will break your heart and you’ll feel manic
Then You’ll learn to let people have their opinions
And talk about your traumas and like the body you live in
Someday you’ll learn to keep your own secrets
Say you’re okay and really mean it
You’ll lose your faith a bit
Question if she’s you
And for awhile you might not like her
But I do

Somedays feel like whiplash
One eighty and you’ll hate that
You’ll label yourself just to take it back
Convince yourself you’re not bi
Cause you’re way too into guys
The first time you have sex you’ll cry
You’ll sometimes skip meals
And numb how you feel
You’ll miss the old you but here’s the deal
The good girl you were was really fucking bad at being real

Someday you’ll think you disappoint your parents
But they’ll love you not despite but regardless
Then you’ll learn to let people have shitty opinions
And talk about your traumas and like the body you live in
Someday you’ll learn to keep your own secrets
Say you’re doing okay and really mean it
You’ll lose your faith a bit and question if shes you
And for awhile you might not like her but I do

    I honestly have very few words to describe how I feel right now. My coming out story was pretty messy as it normally is even coming from a very progressive home. When we began filming my classic, Northwestern, Patagonia loving, attention hating dad asked if id cast he and my mom as themselves to give him the chance to respond the way he wish he could’ve and wanted to. That moment between my parents and I is a one take, real coming out and I am so honored and grateful to have had that moment with them. I will cherish this video forever because of that. I don’t know how long I get to do this artist thing, but I will never stop waking up in awe that a soon to be teacher from Idaho found herself through music. I love you all.

      CONGRATULATIONS ON BEING A TEACHER. MY AUNT IS A PRE SCHOOL TEACHER IN SAN FRANCISCO AND SHE’S STARTING HER OWN THIS SPETERMBER, I KNOW HOW MUCH IT MEANS

    • Food Journals says:

      NEVER STOP MAKE MUSIC. YOU PULL ON MY HEARTSTRINGS

    • Pamela Poole says:

      I love you 💕

    • Megra21 says:

      You’ll never truly know how much this song resonates with not only me as a big girl but also as someone who grew up religious and struggled with the fact that I’m a lesbian. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this masterpiece.

    • Savanah Badesheim says:

      you’re from Idaho 🥺

  2. Shaylee says:

    This song is a gift. This music video is impossible not to cry to. I think a lot of us relate to it, even if our stories aren’t the same. It’s incredibly powerful. THANK YOU! ❤️❤️😭

  3. BangersOnly says:

    This is an absolute masterpiece song and this video… wow, literal chills. This song is going to help so many people out there Maddie. I can’t imagine what it’s like trying to navigate those waters, as if growing up isn’t hard enough already. But this is going to get so many people to see a light at the end of the tunnel. This is SPECIAL, you are special. Thank you for this masterpiece

    • BangersOnly says:

      the fact that you had your parents in this video is so touching as well, cannot get over this video

    I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR YOU SHARING YOUR GIFT WITH THE WORLD! ❤️🙌🏻

  5. Zoey K says:

    After only hearing a snippet, I can tell that this song is going to mean so much to so many people. Love it already and can’t wait to scream this in my car! Happy pride month!! Love the song Maddie❤️

    • NiNi Na says:

      Yes, and not only the LGBTQIA+ community but also the neurodivergent community or the ED community. Setting yourself free from shame is so essential.

  6. Rebekah Wachob says:

    I’ve never “counted down” to a single release before. This song is everything I didn’t even know that I needed to hear. So validating… I’m not alone. Today’s plan is to listen to this on repeat and cry ALL of the tears, for the most beautiful form of therapy <3 <3 THANK YOU for sharing your story with us. You're playing a role in the healing of SO many.

  7. Teri Avron says:

    This made me sob. The scene where she’s crying eating cut me deep and “you’ll say you’re doing ok and really mean it”. I don’t think you understand how many of us are realizing we aren’t the only ones who dealt with these things because of your song. Thank you, from my younger self who needed this, just thank you.

  8. Cassie Walker says:

    I have NEVER resignated with a song like this in my life. The lyrics. The music video. The entire story. Thank you for making my inner child feels so seen and so validated. I know this song was healing for you but I hope you know how healing it is and will continue to be for millions of people.

  9. Nicole MacDonald says:

    My daughter is 13 and she’s never had to come out because it’s just always been known and accepted, by me, at least. For all those struggling out there, you are perfect just the way you are. I could never imagine my daughter for one second not feeling accepted for who she was. It’s heartbreaking to even think about. Sending everyone who’s scared or hurting right now a huge, comforting hug. Happy Pride 🌈❤️

    • Bethany Louw says:

      @Nicole MacDonald Thank you so much for that. I’m also 13 and queer but my parents aren’t really accepting of me but it makes me happy to know that there are parents out there who are. Your daughter is very lucky and Happy Pride!

    • Lisa Sedgwick says:

      Amazing mamma…❤️ that’s how it should be . I’d hate to think my kids couldn’t tell me anything …as a parent all you want is your child to be happy, safe,loved
