Mean To Me

By Jai Cafarella on March 22, 2020 12:43 pm

This track originated from an idea that was basically the first 25 seconds, just acoustic and vocals, then built up from there. Although not lyrically dense, it does vent a little of my experiences of falling for girls that either felt nothing back, but still lead me on and were cruel about it, or said they felt the same but their behaviour proving otherwise. In hindsight I can see my personal issues with needing acceptance often meant I would put up with poor treatment because I 'loved' them, and my martyr complex only encouraged this.


To avoid saturation, I've been resisting the urge to use my EBow since I started Weekly Beats, but this track just felt like an EBow track. I will continue to practice restraint, but I am quite an EBow fan, so this won't be the last use by a long shot! I also showed restraint by removing some ideas/parts I was digging, but were starting to clutter the overall mix.


Lyrics:


I will call you beautiful
I'll call you divine
I'll call you whatever you like
If you just call me some time


I will call you beautiful
I'll call you tonight
I'll call you whatever you like
If you don't call me a waste of time


I keep on falling in love
I keep on falling in love with you
I keep on falling in love
Even though you're mean to me


I will call you beautiful
I'll call you divine
I'll call you whatever you like
If you just call me some time


I will call you beautiful
I will call you divine
I will call you whatever you like
If you don't call me a waste of your time


I keep on falling in love
I keep on falling in love with you
I keep on falling in love
Even though you're mean to me
