The Wrong Size

Words & Music by James Kennedy

'The Wrong Size' is an Alternative Rock song & the 5th song on the 2015 Kyshera album 'Circle'. The words, music & production are by James Kennedy.

At this point in the album, the central character has been left by his long term partner and has decided once again to indulge in the trappings of fame, in the instance of this song that being the belief that he has genuine love in his life in the form of his fans and misconstruing this for actual intimacy. The song is sung from the perspective of a fan and it transpires that their 'relationship' with their favourite artist is only accessible upon them 'paying' for the artists product & conversely, so long as the artist keeps 'changing like the seasons' and keeps giving the fan 'a reason' to love them. Both sides of the relationship profess to be 'in love' with the other but only 'until the next one'. Both sides are guilty of buying into a substitute for real love in the form of celebrity culture and it is obvious to the central character that it is no longer a good enough replica of the real love he had with his ex-partner who loved him even without the trappings of fame.

Musically, the song is an upbeat, Poppy Alt Rock song and possibly Kyshera's most 'Pop' styled song. Kennedy has said that the upbeat, Poppy nature of the song was meant to be ironic, as both characters within the song are basically espousing a pretend love for each other.

LYRICS

You’re always there for me

Just a click away or the turn of a page

I know you care for me,

Even though I have to pay, we got something special

Keep changing like the seasons

Keep giving me a reason

For all the words you wrote

For all the hearts you broke

For all the things you sold

I’m in love with you

For all the dreams you give

For all the lie’s you live

For all the cracks you fill

I’m in love with you

Until the next one

I’m always there for you

Until you stop coming round in a glossy magazine

You now I care for you even though you have to fight

To get some of my time day and night

For all the words you wrote

For all the hearts you broke

For all the things you sold

I’m in love with you

For all the dreams you give

For all the lie’s you live

For all the cracks you fill

I’m in love with you

Until the next one

Keep changing like the seasons

Keep giving me a reason

For all the words you wrote

For all the hearts you broke

For all the things you sold

I’m in love with you

For all the dreams you give

For all the lie’s you live

For all the cracks you fill

I’m in love with you

Until the next one
