TRANSCRIPT

- All right, this last song I'm gonna play for you all

is called "Lightning" and it's the most recent single

that I put out.

It's a song about being in a relationship with somebody

and wanting to not be in the relationship

and someone has to speak up about it.

In this case it was me and it goes like this.
