Now I Know

Now I Know

Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

this song is about my experience as a trans woman and the fear that nobody will ever truly see me as a woman.

Lyrics: 

you don’t see me
i know you say you do but you don’t I promise you
you say it’s my voice that throws you off
and you hear a man when i talk

is that what I am to you?
then i assure you that you can’t understand
i’m not some walking contradiction
will anybody ever see me as I am?

you don’t know me
I know you think you do but you don’t I promise you
i heard you talking about me and you were calling me “he”

is that what I am to you?
then i assure you that you can’t understand
i’m not some walking contradiction
will anybody ever see me as I am?

i’m not the type of girl who can let things go
once I know, once I know
i’m not the type of girl who can let things go
once I know, once I know

Tight lyric, this story is super-clear.

The statement you don't know/see me and the question "is that what I am to you" lay things out well.

I like the melody in the "walking contradiction" line.

I like how you save the title for the very last, and you're not actually using the title... I love outro's, and this one is very effective.

Fun incidental chat at the end.
