Tadpole Glow — Fun While it lasted

”The lyrics for “Fun While it Lasted” were inspired by a bit of poetry I wrote in my journal nearly a decade ago after a breakup. It wasn’t even a particularly bad breakup, but I was pondering the way that, in a relationship, if your goal is to change the other person or make them “better” you are probably not meant for each other. You can’t love someone enough to make them a different person”

Partimama — Mamma Loves ya

The song has a strong, empowering message about acceptance and unity and appeals to all genders and demographics with a strong connection to LGBTQ.
