I Know What I’ll Do


wrote this song in the spring of 2019, feeling a little spurned by some things I heard secondhand. I believed a few people I knew were drawing weird conclusions about me based on their own speculation. Usually, petty things like this never make it into a song… but this is a petty song, and now it exists. When I first crafted the instrumental, I knew the song had a “sarcastic” edge–there were no lyrics or vocals, but something about it was sinister and acerbic in tone. So, I leant into it. This is a song about people thinking they know you better than you know yourself.
