Go Easy On Me is all about finding what’s important to you and running after it with everything you’ve got. It’s about the journey, not the destination. And that’s something we can all identify with. The Bittersweets never sugarcoat things – their lyrics are honest and heartfelt. That’s what makes their music so great.
This song seems appropriate for a release at the beginning of the new year due to its focus on starting over and setting goals. It reminds us that nothing comes easily. Getting into the right direction will require flailing, stumbling, and flooding the engine. But it will be worth it in the end. Go Easy On Me has a folk sound, with drums, percussion, bass guitar, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, and accordion all featured prominently.
