This is the 24th post of MyLoveLifeWritten4You. In this month’s post, as always, I have another update on my love life. As you all may know by now, I recently broke up with my boyfriend of 5 years, Andy Grammer. In today’s post, I would like to explain our break-up to you because I learned a valuable lesson from it: you can never fully trust a man.
I’ll start by saying how Andy and I met. About 5 years ago, Andy’s first single, “Keep Your Head Up”, came out and I hate to admit this, but I absolutely loved it. I was in a little bit of a funk about 5 years ago, but I heard his song, and it inspired me to actually keep my head up. I was so moved by the song that I wrote a long letter to Andy saying how much the song touched me and yada, yada, yada. He wrote me back, we met up for coffee and we started dating after that. Over the past 5 years, all seemed to be going fine in our relationship, that is until I heard his his new single “Honey, I’m Good” for the first time.
A few months ago, before the song was released, Andy came over to my apartment to have me listen to it. Being his girlfriend and his biggest fan, I couldn’t be more excited to hear it. After listening, my face turned red. I was very suspicious of the lyrics, so I began to question him on some of the specific lines. The first one I played back was this one:
I could have another, but I probably should not.
“So you were out late drinking?” I said. “Why didn’t you tell me about this?”
“Baby, I was just having a few drinks with the guys that night” said Andy.
Interesting. I went back and played another lyric that stood out to me:
And these long long legs are damn near.
“So you happened to notice that there were a lot of attractive girls around you?” I said.
“Well, yeah there were a lot of girls checking me out that night” he said. “But I wanted to come home to you, baby. I wrote this song because I’m crazy about you, baby” he said.
“When was this? Last weekend?” I said.
“Yeah, it was Friday the 11th” he said. “I was out with the guys and wrote the song the next morning.”
“The 11th? I remember that night. I called you over to watch a movie and you said you couldn’t come because you were stuck in the studio all night” I said.
“Baby, I’m sorry. You know you’re my baby” he said.
Baloney I was his baby! What a croc! Ladies, if you are going to be in a relationship, you have to know that most men will just try to hide the truth. So, I tried to pry the truth out of him by playing back one last lyric:
I’ve got to bid you adieu.
“You were in France, weren’t you?” I said.
“No, baby! New York. I just had to find something to rhyme with ‘stay true to you’ so I used ‘Adieu’ instead” he said. “Baby, I will stay true to you.”
That’s when I knew for sure that he had something he wasn’t telling me.
“Wait…you will stay true to me?” I said. “Does that imply that you weren’t staying true to me in the past?”
I had him trapped. I saw the stupid coy look on his face as he paused before answering.
“Well, I guess I should clear something up that I didn’t put in the song” he said.
“What’s that?” I said.
“Well, I actually kissed one of the girls with long legs at the bar” he said. “But it didn’t mean anything. It was only a few seconds, and right after it happened, my feelings for you doubled! That’s why I wrote the song… for you, baby.”
“Get out of my apartment” I said. “I never want to see you again.”
“Baby, let me explain” he said.
“No, no. Honey, I’m good” I said and pushed him out the door.
That’s the last thing I said to Andy and I haven’t talked to him since. His agent actually reached out to me yesterday and happened to mention that he has been a wreck in the studio lately. He apparently took a vow to never drink again and his agent said he is now working on a ballad. What a croc!
As for me though, I’m single now, and I couldn’t be happier. Today, I’m going to go for a long walk and sing a song of a more honest tune. A different song I heard recently was that new Justin Bieber one called, “I’ll Show You”. I like it because I don’t want a man to just tell me he’s going to be true to me… I want him to show me.
Maybe I should write Justin a letter.
‘Till next month!
