This songs gets to me every time. I’ve always loved Cassie’s vulnerability, the way she puts everything behind her to start again. Every time I hear her say “I’ll do you proud” I’m on the verge of tears.
Give me a job and you instantly get me involved. If you give me a job, Then the rest of the crap will get solved. Put me to work, You would think that by now I’m allowed. I’ll do you proud.
Throw me a rope to grab on to. Helpome to prove that I’m strong. Give me the chance to look forward to sayin’: “Hey, listen, they’re playing my song…”
