yes girl - Bea Miller



The Experience: I got you figured out, you need to have control... I've been doing what you want, but I won't be your yes girl, no, not anymore... Love slowly turns into abuse. Do you have the strength to escape with your innocence intact...



Music video: Bea Miller starts off in a pure white box - her innocent soul. That innocence is violated when love turns into control and grasping hands reach through the walls to take what she doesn't want to give - he won't share her heart, he only wants to strip it bare. The pure white light is marred by deep shadows. She's trapped, and doesn't have the courage to reject those hands until she's almost completely broken, her shirt dress unraveled to leave her in just her underwear. The underwear is modest, and isn't a come on; it's the last line of defense. And she maintains it. She holds. She screams out a painful but finally defiant scream - No, I won't do it anymore, I won't do it anymore - and breaks free. Hurt and crying, but alone again and finally free.


The Meaning of Yes Girl: The relationship changed - you used to always let me in. Now he won't share. Won't give. He just reaches into her life to take. And now her life is torn apart as she struggles between her fear and the truth about what their relationship has become. Yes Girl chronicles the path out of abuse. Bea Miller repeats the refrain three times: the first two times are denial and anger. But then a scream of pain and decision cuts the song in half No, I won't do it anymore, I won't do it anymore - and the third refrain is finally defiance and freedom.

Ask yourself: Do I give or just take? Do I share or just use? Do I let others strip me of my dignity?

LYRICS:

Could tell you what you wanna hear
Cause the truth is always in the way
I never wanna live in fear
I don't wanna hold back all the things I need to say
Say, say

I got you figured out, you need to have control
You think that I don't know you, I know you, I know
Trying to tell you now, I've been doing what you want
But I won't be your yes girl, no, not anymore
Just let me go, just let me go
Won't be your yes girl, no, not anymore
Just let me go, just let me go
Won't be your yes girl, no, not anymore

You used to always let me in
Do you even know you changed?
And now you're my favorite sin, oh
Cause I'm either on your side or you're a mile away

I got you figured out, you need to have control
You think that I don't know you, I know you, I know
Trying to tell you now, I've been doing what you want
But I won't be your yes girl, no, not anymore
Just let me go, just let me go
Won't be your yes girl, no, not anymore
Just let me go, just let me go
Won't be your yes girl, no, not anymore

No, I won't do it anymore
I won't do it anymore

I got you figured out, you need to have control
You think that I don't know you, I know you, I know
Trying to tell you now, I've been doing what you want
But I won't be your yes girl, no, not anymore
Just let me go, just let me go
Won't be your yes girl, no, not anymore
Just let me go, just let me go
Won't be your yes girl, no, not anymore
Not anymore
