PIPER BYERS NEW RELEASE GOOD TIL IT’S GOOD
You may have seen Piper Byers featured on our playlist before and she’s back swinging with her newest release “Good Til It’s Good.” Byers’ newest release has us feeling all sorts of ways between nostalgic, melancholy and satisfyingly independent. It’s one of those songs we dance around in our room like were in an 80’s movie; one of those scenes you can’t quite explain other than iconically making you feel some type of way. Byers’ broke down her song for us and it felt all too familiar, reminding us to enjoy what we have in the moment.
THE HONEY: WHAT IS THE STORY/MESSAGE WITH YOUR SONG? WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION?
PIPER: “Recently I found myself getting close to someone and things were going so well and then all of the sudden, I panicked! I started to think, ‘things are so good right now that something bad has to be on it’s way.’ That voice in my head freaked me out so obviously I wrote a song about it. It’s messed up but especially today, dealing with Covid and 2020 in general, when something good happens, I start to wait for the other shoe to drop instead of just living in the moment and appreciating the good that I have.”
THE HONEY: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LYRIC OF THE SONG? BREAK IT DOWN FOR US!
PIPER: “There’s two different lyrics in the song that hold a lot of emotional weight for me in particular and they sort of go hand-and-hand. The first one being, ‘Babe, I always listen for the thunder,’ meaning I’m always keeping an ear out for something that could go wrong or for a reason to hide. The second lyric is ‘I have been here for years, me and I and all my fears.
Babe you really shouldn’t let a storm in,’ meaning sometimes it feels easier to lock people out and board up your windows so you don’t get hurt.”
THE HONEY: ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO SHARE ABOUT THIS SONG?
PIPER: “With this song, I had the chance to use some really cool 80’s inspired elements as well as some good, old fashioned synth and I really love how it turned out!”
