Presley DuYck – “Happy 22!”

“I wrote this song during quarantine. I was surprised by the many emotions that hit me when I woke up and realized that it was my ex-boyfriend’s birthday. Because we had a bad break-up, we hadn’t talked in months. It felt weird to do a social media post (felt so shallow and insincere), but it also felt weird to send him a private message (felt secretive and perhaps unwelcome.) In the end, I didn’t contact him but wrote this song instead.” – Presley
