Growing up is much more than finding your footing in adulthood. We often have to shed past expectations, particularly those of our parental figures, and learn that you have to mess up. Liddy Clark pens a letter to her parents with “sorry mom & dad,” apologizing for having a “a taste for tequila” and “some weed in my sock drawer,” among other things.
“Sorry mom and dad I keep on asking you for cash / But unpaid gigs are all I’ve got while I still have class,” she sings. Clark’s voice carries the weight of the entire world, filtered through songbird vocals. Maybe, just maybe, she’ll let it all go now.
