We all pretend we’re OK. When times are tough, we shrug and simply say, “I’m fine.” Pop songwriter Ashe employs this notion for a new song, aptly called “I’m Fine,” in which she also frames that one person who sees right through the facade.
“And even when you ask if I’m ok, I try to say ‘I’m fine’ / You don’t believe me when I say I’m alright,” she puckers her lips on the hook. Such truth is never easy to swallow, even if we really do know we’re not being honest. Sometimes, you just have to really go through it to find the clarity you so desperately need.
