Follow Your Arrow - Kacey Musgraves




The Experience: You're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't, so you might as well do whatever you want. Just follow your arrow wherever it points... being ourselves is important. Standing up for what we believe in is worth it. But can I do everything that I want even if it is not right?

Music Video: Kacey sings and dances to this country-style song. It is a mixture of challenges and of making decisions. The Church and the Pastor are not the only ones that dictate how we should behave. The world needs and asks for authenticity... and Kacey looks like she might just be right when she sings about following our arrow.

Meaning of Follow your Arrow: What others think is important. But what we believe in is even more important. But following our arrow is not just about going against the current. It is about being true and authentic. It is about discovering who we are, what we believe in and what we fight for. There are limits: what's good for us and others.

Ask yourself: Where does my arrow point?

LYRICS:

If you save yourself for marriage you're a bore.
If you don't save yourself for marriage you're a horrible person.
If you won't have a drink then you're a prude.
But they'll call you a drunk as soon as you down the first one.

If you can't lose the weight then you're just fat.
But if you lose too much then you're on crack.
You're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't,
so you might as well just do whatever you want.

Chorus:
So, make lots of noise, kiss lots of boys.
Or kiss lots of girls, if that's something you're into.
When the straight and narrow gets a little too straight
roll up a joint, or don't.
Just follow your arrow wherever it points.
Yeah, follow your arrow wherever it points.

If you don't go to church you'll go to hell.
If you're the first one on the front row you're a self-righteous son-of -a-
Can't win for losing, you'll just disappoint 'em.
Just cause you can't beat 'em, don't mean you should join 'em.

Chorus

Say what you think, love who you love.
'Cause you just get so many trips around the sun.
Yeah, you only, only live once.

So, make lots of noise, kiss lots of boys.
Or kiss lots of girls, if that's what you're into.
When the straight and narrow gets a little too straight,
roll up a joint, I would.
And follow your arrow wherever it points, yeah.
Follow your arrow wherever it points.
