I started writing “Election Night” just before the U.S. election in 2020.
For better or worse, elections are a good time for self-reflection. Different political eras affect society as a whole, but in my new single I wanted to dig into how it also affects relationships on a more intimate level.
“It’s a paradox, going back in time” speaks to the idea of wanting to experience something again, or change how it happened, but realizing if you did that then the present version of your world would not exist in the same way. You are better because you’ve learned something and grown. We have to accept things as they happen and just keep trying to take the right next step.
Hope you enjoy it,
