Is Jillian Jacquline’s ‘Reasons’ a Hit? Listen and Sound Off!
We've all been there, staying in a relationship far past its expiration date. Jillian Jacqueline lays out the "Reasons" why in her relatable new single.
Standing strong with the honesty that made "God Bless This Mess" so moving, Jacqueline paints the image of a two people in a failing relationship that have a laundry list of reasons why they're staying put. Anyone who's been in this position is sure to relate to the feelings Jacqueline puts forth: frustration, loneliness, emptiness and a sense of defeat, all wrapped up in a perky beat. The young singer brings a sense of conviction to her delivery while giving a voice to the internal struggle of facing the pain of breakup.
Jacqueline's compelling songwriting ability makes her an emerging artist to keep an eye on, and the honesty, empathy and talent she exhibits on "Reasons" is yet another example of what makes her so dynamic.
Did You Know? "Reasons" has already racked up more than 11 million streams online.
Jillian Jacquline's "Reasons" Lyrics:
I don't wanna tell my parents, wanna tell my sister / You don't wanna tell your friends / You don't wanna pack your stuff / Fall back in love with another girl again / All alone, picking up take out / Coming home to an empty house / Admittin' that the time we spent / Was just a lesson
We've got all our reasons why / We try to justify / Sticking it out, to stay together / And we're supposed to last forever / You and I, too scared to say goodbye / In case of what will happen later / We're not doing us any favors / I'm so sick of living a lie / So screw all of our reasons why
We feel like roommates, standing at the same sink / We don't even kiss goodnight / I don't wanna be a quitter, don't wanna have to answer / When everybody asks me why / Giving all your T-shirts back / Putting all my stuff in bags / We were supposed to be married by the time we're 30 / Breaking up is scary
I'm so sick of living a lie / So screw all of our reasons why / Goodbye
I don't love you, you don't love me / It can be, it can be just that simple, baby / I don't love you, you don't love me / It can be, it should be just that simple, baby / I don't love you, you don't love me / It can be, it can be just that simple, baby / I don't love you, you don't love me / It can be, it should be just that simple, baby (yeah)
