Your Version of Me

Album: Under The Influence (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • In this song, Steady Holiday (Dre Babinski) sings about wanting her lover back:

    I'm happier under your reign
    so sing to me just like before
    when you were mine and I was yours


    It's not a healthy motivation though: the woman in the song finds it easier to go through life with someone else controlling her. In our interview with Steady Holiday, she said, "It's a complete confession of insecurity. It's about when you just hide and let someone else tell you what to do because it's oftentimes much easier."
