Mean To Me Lyrics

“Mean To Me” is a song I wrote early this year. If you haven’t heard a snippet…  Click here! 

Anyways, this song is process different from most of my other songs  in regards to sound and style. However, I have really come to like its sweeter sound in contrast to the content in the lyrics. Out of all my works thus far, this song has seemed to have one of the most emotional impacts on people. I had people reach out and express how this song was “just what they needed to here”.

This song was inspired during a rough time in my life where I was really stressed with school, music and other things. To be honest, I am sometimes really hard on myself. Sometimes that is good, sometimes it is not.  This song was inspired by a conversation I was having  on the phone one day…

In short, I was just pretty much just “talking trash” about myself and how I have failed. And they stopped me and said “What would you be saying to someone else in this situation?” This really put things into perspective for me. If a loved one, or even a perfect stranger was in the same situation as me, I wouldn’t just tell them” “throw in the towel, you’re already screwed”. I wouldn’t be looking at them the way that I was looking at myself.

I had a realization that it would not even matter if people on the outside were being mean or nice to me. I was being “Mean To Me”. Sometimes its an inside job and we are are own worst enemy. This song is really important to me because it reminds me to shift my perspectives and thought process when I am in a rut.

“Mean to me,”  long story short is a song about how I am to myself sometimes. None the less, we often say things to ourselves about ourselves we’d never say about or to anyone else. I am far perfect at this, but I’m working on not being as hard on myself and I hope others can too. It’s important to be kind to people… & that includes yourself!

MEAN TO ME   3/27/19

NO’ONECAN RUIN MY DAY LIKE I CAN
NO’ONE IS BETTER AT SCREWIN’ UP MY PLANS
I SHOULD BE TALLER I SHOULD BE THINNER
WANNA WEAR THAT DRESS I BETTER SKIP DINNER
I SHOOT MYSELF DOWN
BEFORE I GIVE MYSELF A CHANCE

CHORUS

I NEED TO START BEING GOOD TO MYSELF
COS I’M NEVER GONNA BE ANYONE ELSE
GIVE MYSELF A BREAK
FORGIVE MYSELF FOR MY MISTAKES
I CAN’T KEEP BEIN’ MY OWN WORST ENEMY
I NEED TO STOP BEIN’ MEAN TO ME…

VERSE

MY FRIENDS SAY I’M FUNNY 
I NEED TO LAUGH AT MY OWN JOKES
MY MAMA SAYS I’M BEAUTIFUL
BUT SHE’S JUST BLOWIN’ MAMA SMOKE
I WISH I COULD SEE WHAT EVERYBODY SEES
BUT WHEN I LOOK INTO THE MIRROR ALL I SEE IS ME
THEY KNOW A STRANGER I’D LIKE TO GET TO KNOW…

BRIDGE

THEY SAY DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU
BUT EVERYTIME I MAKE MYSELF SUFFER
I BREAK THAT GOLDEN RULE…"

xoxo,
