“I never wanted to be that girl // I never wanted to hate myself // I thought this kind of lonely only happens to somebody else // Bein’ the other one when there’s another one // God, this feels like hell // Thought I knew who I was, but it’s gettin’ hard to tell // I never wanted to be that girl”

Both singer-songwriters put words to an experience that many women (and men) unfortunately go through. It truly is country music songwriting at its finest. Congrats to Pearce and McBryde on their number one!
