Willow Stephens Releases “Expectations” | @WillowStephens |

“Expectations” is the third single from Willow Stephens’ upcoming album “Shadow Sides”.  It’s an anthem that celebrates breaking free from the people and things that do not serve you. As the artwork implies, the singer is ready to shatter the expectations that restricted her and held her down. She is confidently walking away from a suffocating and toxic situation. The juxtaposition of feathery vocals, hip-hop infused drums and a hard-hitting bass line bring a powerful feminine energy to the track.

LYRICS:

I should have seen it coming, I saw the storm clouds running

You played it off real charming, but I should have seen the warning

You can straighten your teeth you can change your behavior

You’re still just a snake dressing up like a savior

I’m wild unrefined and I’m nobody’s baby

Your cheap circus tricks–they’re not gonna tame me

You tell me I’m no good, I don’t act the way you thought I would

Sorry I don’t meet your expectations

You tell me I’m no good, I don’t talk the way I should

Well honey I’m not here to entertain you

I should have listened, to my own intuition

You had a shiny surface, but something about your smile always made me nervous

You can straighten your teeth you can change your behavior

You’re still just a snake dressing up like a savior

I’m wild unrefined and I’m nobody’s baby

Your cheap circus tricks–they’re not gonna tame me

You tell me I’m no good, I don’t act the way you thought I would

Sorry I don’t meet your expectations

You tell me I’m no good, I don’t talk the way I should

Well honey I’m not here to entertain you

I’m saying goodbye, that’s my cue so goodnight

Nevermind. I’ll be fine without you

You tell me I’m no good, I don’t act the way you thought I would

Sorry I don’t meet your expectations

You tell me I’m no good, I don’t talk the way I should

Well honey I’m not here to entertain you
