Pretty Girl’ is one of my favorite songs on my new EP, Citrine,” she says. “It’s an acknowledgement of all those beautiful women you come across and think to yourself, ‘gosh, that girl is just so beautiful,’ but never say anything or act on it. So often I’ll think it without saying anything. With this song, I just wanted to share that appreciation.
—  Hayley does just this in Pretty Girl, singing, “I just want to tell you you’re really pretty, girl. I just want to know if you will let me be your world.” | PaperMag
