Confessions

in music •  23 days ago

This is a song that I wrote a few months ago whilst I was (quite literally) driving home from a band rehearsal. It's based on a bit from my favourite podcast the Guilty Feminist http://guiltyfeminist.com So yeah! New music! :D

Lyrics:
V1:
I'm a feminist but when I sew my clothes
I can't be assed to sew pockets I long for in my store bought clothes
and

I'm a feminist but body positivity goes
when I eat a meal from which the excess calories flow

Chorus:
I'm a guilty Feminist
I am guilty of the things I do detest
Sometimes I am
a filthy hypocrite
But it's ok because we can't all be perfect

V2:
I'm a feminist but on occasion I am
still threatened by the success of my female gendered friends

I'm a feminist but many of my problems
are defined by white middle class privilege that I grew up in

Chorus:
I'm a guilty Feminist
I am guilty of the things I do detest
Sometimes I am
a filthy hypocrite
But it's ok because we can't all be perfect

I love the lyrics! It is a reflection of facts, of what some people experience from day to day...

But it's ok because we can't all be perfect

In spite of the imperfections, I still see feminists with high regards. That only tells me lesser (if not lack of) gender discrimination.

The tune and the beat are great too! Your cool voice matched them well. Thanks for sharing your composition! 😊

A very subtle and charming sound, You play with a lot of feeling and transmit what you play, it was sincerely beautiful, very beautiful your original song a big hug @theemeraldruby
