In Their Words: “I started to write this song when I was feeling very lost. I was very briefly a flight attendant right out of college and it immediately didn’t pan out. I spent my first year of non-college adulthood moving around every few months and unable to lock down a solid job. After that, I immediately settled down with my ex-husband and lived a very externally ordered life. But it wasn’t what I wanted to be doing — I just felt like a failure at 23 years old. I wasn’t adventuring or creating or writing music, but everyone was complementing me on how ‘together’ I was. This song is about how it doesn’t matter if you’re put together or not. If you’re not living a life you want you’re probably not going to be particularly happy.” — Olivia Ellen Lloyd
