Community Score: 4.5 / 5

"Nothing is perfect, relationships are brutal especially ending one. This song details the end of a past relationship even though I wasn’t ready for it to go. I was upset that I changed so much of me and pain I endured to make the relationship work just to be left. It was a mix of sadness and anger. I think it’s one of my best songs being able to take that emotion and translate it into song."


Marinez - Party On The West

"Sometimes splitting your needs from your wants is everything. Knowing what's healthy for you and what's not. When to pay attention and when to ignore. Who to indulge and who to let go of. Simply put: you are what you eat, and sometimes you gotta go on a cleanse and eat your veggies."
