I Been That Girl

I wanted to hate Melanie Fiona hard.

But this woman got me all up in my feelings with almost every song of hers. 

She even said this new album was about emotions, feelings, and vulnerability. The perils of love. The joys of love. Some people are looking for love in the right or the wrong places. Some people are yearning for love from the right or wrong people.

Of all the songs this small ditty (it’s a blink-or-miss-it bit on the album) hit me in the chest because I was tired of being that girl who puts up with a trifling and manipulative ex-boyfriend. 

Heard about the tires on his brand new carI knew that he’d drive you crazyGuess the only option is to fall when you get pushed too farYou’ll think about that next time maybeWhen he’s calling your name outWhen he needs you back in his lifeCause he got some secrets, and all of them came upWhen it’s all your name, but you can’t make the payment
He needs you to stay, but you don’t wanna goI know cause I have been that girl

Yep, with this this song, she (and her co-writer Drake) nailed her 95 theses to the door to my heart. And I get everything she poured into this album. But this song slays me every time. Every time.
