Meghan Praught – “Second Guessing” single
“Live inside my head, hear those words again. Replay the things I should have said. Dream when I’m awake and make the same mistakes. It always seems to take hours to get some rest. Don’t know how to feel, I can’t tell what’s real at all. Am I missing signs? Should I say goodbye? Am I angry, hurt, or overly prideful? Is my pride making it worse? ‘Cause now, I can’t trust myself. I’m so tired of my mind, second-guessing all the time.” – lyrics
‘Second Guessing’ tells an intriguing tale about a young woman who wishes she was someone else because she can’t trust herself. Apparently, she’s mentally drained and needs to take a break to rejuvenate. Oftentimes, she stays up all night thinking too many ill thoughts. Therefore, she finds difficulty falling asleep. Later, she admits that she doesn’t know how to feel and can’t tell what’s real anymore. Also, she doesn’t know if she’s angry or hurt?
“I’m so tired of my mind, second-guessing all the time.”
“‘Second Guessing’ is about what happens when you spend too much time in your head: living in your own thoughts, analyzing past conversations, and planning future conversations. It is essentially about wishing that your brain would work for you instead of against you. When making the song, we wanted the build to really reflect that feeling of being overwhelmed by your thoughts. It starts simple and empty and the further in you get, the busier and more complex the layers get, making it hard to distinguish individuals parts.” – Meghan Praught explained
