Show Review In all honesty, we were a bit surprised we were able to snag a little time with Sara Bareilles. She's been a bit busy of late. In August, the theatrical adaption of the film Waitress opened in Boston, for which Bareilles wrote the music and lyrics. This coming March, Waitress will officially go into previews on Broadway.
You can just feel all the emotions wrapped into one beautifully composed, simple, yet so impactful melody. Personally, I don't necessarily believe that she was talking to a lover in this song, or someone that she loved I think it could be as simple as just a guy who she cares about and loves on a friend level--her best friend.
I feel that she has always wanted the best for this guy, but he never listens to her advice, and this infuriates her "hold my breath and count to ten," typically a maneuver used to redirect anger and calm down as she is nearly always spot-on with her opinions and suggestions.
But even more than angry, she is sad for this boy. When she says "I'm the one that you always choose", she's saying that she's the one he chooses to trust, the one he chooses to come to when he needs someone to be there for him. But she feels a bit used by this boy "I'm the paper and you're the pen".
She feels that she is always there when he needs someone, but then he never listens to her or values her opinions when he isn't hurt and vulnerable.
But the singer believes he should not sacrifice his happiness and his personality for an unappreciative girl who does not realize all that he really is. I was intrigued by the use of the word "gift". I believe that the singer chose this word to symbolize how the boy will take whatever the girl gives him, as if it were the best thing he ever received, because he is blinded This girl is using and abusing this completely unaware, oblivious boy that wants nothing more than to please this girl--but he will never be able to please someone who has higher expectations than humanly possible.
But she will use him up until he has nothing left of his own--she will change him, force him to lose his personality for her unreasonable desires before she moves on to someone new, who won't put up with her, and she will return again to this poor boy as he is regaining his balance from their shaky breakup and trying to move on with his life.
He will fall back again and again, expecting things to get better, expecting things to be different He does not know what love is--he has never experienced it, so he assumes that because this girl acts as though she wants him at the start, it must be love, dysfunctional as it is, it must be love She gets angered by the actions of the girl that the boy keeps returning to.
She is also angered by the boy's ignorance toward her well-informed opinions and advice as she can see everything play out, crash, and burn before her eyes.
She has probably said things along the lines of "Whatever, live your life however you want, I cannot help you if you are intent on living in sadness and despair, but I will always be there for you when things go wrong. She's threatening to leave and not be there for the boy anymore because she does not want any less than to be respected and have her opinions valued by this boy--all the time.
She wants to defend and protect him, so she has no problem rising, fighting with this girl, when the singer is angry about the way the girl has been treating the boy. But then the boy keeps making the decisions to remain with this girl, to return to this girl, after all of the awful things she has done over the years.
She is saying that this girl is toxic, she is a landslide waiting to happen. Pressure building up, gravity pulling down, and eventually it all collapses--a landslide. This girl plays life like a game, pretending to be someone she is not--putting on a masquerade, pretending to want the best for this boy, when she only cares about herself.
Pretending that she loves him, but she does not love amyone besides herself.
The singer concludes the song with several lines of "I wouldn't need a second chance", to really get the point across to this boy. Her repetitiveness has such a clear point, she is really trying to make the boy listen, to make him understand.
What the singer is trying to say is that she has never been misinformed or wrong in her verbalized opinions to this boy, but he still rejects her thoughts. But she has never done him wrong, and has never needed a second chance pn anything, but this girl he is with has needed, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth The singer will never be able to understand the boy's logic, as it is not logical, and he is not thinking clearly.
His thoughts are clouded and this vicious cycle may never end. But there is nothing the singer can do if he is not willing to listen and comply with her suggestions. All she can do is love him, be there for him when things fall apart--yet again.Lyrics to "Love Song" song by Sara Bareilles: I'm not gonna write you a love song 'Cause you asked for it 'Cause you need one, you see 'Cause I believe there's a way you can love me Because I say I won't write you a love song 'Cause you asked for it 'Cause you need one, you see.
Lyrics to 'I Choose You' by Sara Bareilles. Let the bough break, let it come down crashing / Let the sun fade out to a dark sky / I can't say I'd even notice it.

When Sara Bareilles broke through in with "Love Song," she was a breath of fresh air; a performer who fit naturally into the pop landscape but also a singer-songwriter and pianist who could stand tall next to spikier talents like Regina Spektor, Rachael Yamagata and Ben Folds/5(K).
