I wrote this song at a time in my life when I wasn't too certain about what I wanted, who I wanted to be, or where I wanted to go. All I knew was that I was over my same routine. Get up, go to school, then to cheer practice, yada yada yada. I was an eighteen year old naive little girl, ready to get out of my bubble and experience new things, and I did.
This song is really fun to play! I love it because I feel so empowered singing these words and I genuinely believe I get my point across quite well. "It's Over!"
This song actually is not about a boy. Surprised? This song, as a matter of fact, is about my best friends. The three of us together can get loud, wild, and break the rules in a town near you! (Just rules, not laws). Anyway, together we made our summer the "Summer of Our Lives." Together, anywhere we went, anything we did, and anything we wanted was perfectly fine because we had each other.
As you can tell from listening to this song, I was in a situation where I was sick and tired of a certain person's constant lying and betrayal. Therefore, naturally I ran away• I kid, I kid. In all seriousness, this song is about having to leave someone behind, because having them around is way more painful then not. Honestly, sometimes we all just need to get away from all the drama, gossip, and deceit of our every day lives and open ourselves up to new things. I don't know, maybe sky diving for example. But, that part is up to you. Do whatever your little heart desires.
Naturally, this song and the words along with it came easily to me, as I am 19. I was in my "Rachael writing mind set" and it all kind of flowed. After going through a rough experience, which I truly believed I wasn't capable of returning from, the pain and regret I felt slowly but surely slipped away. This song is a reminder of the pain I felt. It is also a warning to my future self, or anyone out there that can relate. The warning within this song is the reminder of how, although I did get hurt, I am only nineteen. Therefore, I'm young and have the rest of my life ahead of me. A life that does not include negative people.
I wrote this song during a time in my life when I was faced with confusion, disapproval, and people constantly disappointing me. This song represents how, no matter what cards I am dealt, I will never give up on what I want until It is mine. Therefore the song title, "Until It's Mine".
