"I think giving people the right to marry will be a huge movement in civil rights." PHOTOS: Sad splits in Hollywood Although they've parted ways, there's no bad blood.
You know you’re stunning You’re absolutely stunning And I’m running always running And now I’m crying It’s only cause I’m caring And if you were more daring Maybe you’d stop staring And come over and talk to me Tell me bout how you’ve been waiting so patiently And how you tried but I just turned away And I’ll say yeah well you know, I’m shy that way Shy that way Maybe I’m shy that way Oh, you know you’re stunning You’re absolutely stunning But you’re always runnin' But I’ll catch up to you The way you keep your distance is Keeping my interest So I’ll keep it persistent Oh, maybe someday Someway, somehow in some town We’ll get together and We’ll break it down And I’ll ask why you’ve been so shy, gotta be that way Maybe baby, oh love, I like it that way Shy that way You know I love you so shy, Shy that way So keep it comin' comin' comin' comin' Shy that way There’s always too much talking And I wanna just keep walking But I keep staring baby Keep staring Though I may not know the right things to say I’ll get it out to you one day I’m shy that way You’re shy that way Do you like it Do you like it? Yes I like it Yes I like it When you’re shy Shy that way I like it I like it shy You know it’s alright, it’s okay 'Cause we’re Shy that way…
The minute that breakup happened, it was like the floodgates opened, and I was feeling ultra crazy shit. I remember having a moment when I was super in it and really sad and I had this epiphany like, “Oh my god, I’m feeling again, and I want to write music, and I need to write something down.” It just started pouring out of me.
Were you aware of how candid the songs were when you were writing them? I wanted to make a record that was an experience, a record that was super transparent and really honest, like no synonyms for things that were going on, just straight to the point.
, is a heartbreak album in the truest sense of the word.
Over the course of the record’s 12 tracks, Prettyman lays out the sadness, the hurt, the anger, and the painful details of her recent split from ex-fiancé (and fellow musician) Jason Mraz.
Below, we talk to the singer about lost loves, new digs, and the importance of staying truthful. I had been all over the world and done all these shows, but I had no idea what it was like to be a normal 27-year-old.
Penned following a four-year hiatus from music making, is undoubtedly Prettyman’s most honest and revealing record to date.
It’s also the project that’s allowed her to rediscover her love for songwriting.
The couple later explained to Us Weekly that they wouldn't actually be walking down the aisle for a while.
"We can't get married until [gay] marriage is legal and equal," Mraz said.
Singer-songwriter Mraz, 33, broke the sad news to the Daily Beast in NYC Tuesday night.
