The Song’s Strength That Catches Messina’s Interest

Basically, the song’s central theme had a great impact on the singer. In particular, bluntness emanates from its wordings which somehow resonates the type of personality she has. That kind of “You know what? I’m outta here, I deserve better than this” element of the song struck her the most. As someone who despises complainers, she considers approaching any situation with a peevish attitude as merely a waste of time. Also, as a believer in action, doing nothing when faced with troubles is similarly worthless. She reflected much of this belief in many things of her songs. What about you dear readers, do you have that belief similar to her? If so, then you would definitely relate to this song too.
