“You Said It, I Meant It” gently croons your heartache away. Edmondson is a master at catharsis all throughout If I Don’t Try.
I actually started writing this song for another artist but fell in love with it and wanted to record it on this upcoming EP. It’s about that relationship where the person you’ve loved and trusted does that thing that totally messes up the situation, and now you have to deal with the leftover feelings. For me, it was a bad breakup. I still had strong feelings for her, but she obviously didn’t value the commitment aspect of a relationship, and it broke me. This song is my way of saying, “We both seemed so invested in this, and so in love, but I guess it was only me.” The glimmer of hope at the end is that I ended up finding the courage to move forward and be happy again. — Wyatt Edmondson
