Banks ~ Before I Ever Met You!

Banks!

The most powerful songs are stories drawn from personal experiences and L.A. songstress BANKS throws everything out on the table with her debut single “Before I Ever Met You”.  The lyrics carry a dual perspective centered around the ups and downs of a typical dating relationship.  On one hand, you hear a subtle sadness we can all relate to when you care for someone and it eventually doesn’t work out.   On the other hand, you can also feel a sense of relief or appreciation for realizing things about yourself that you wouldn’t have figured out otherwise.  “Before I Ever Met You” is a honest song filled with purposeful emotions and retrospective expressions.  Being inspired by Fiona Apple, it doesn’t hurt to sound like her too.

It’s ironic that a musician who doesn’t embrace social media will soon be a household name mostly because of it.  The self-taught pianist is a force to be reckoned with and it’s only a matter of time before people start recognizing the art behind her music on a wider scale.  As for right now, her name is BANKS and her debut EP on IAMSOUND will be available soon for all of us enjoy!

Before I Ever Met You Lyrics:
Everyone knows I’m right about one thing
You and I don’t work out
You bring out the mean in me
I bring out your insecurities
You know what I am talking bout
Eventually you’ll be fine if we break up
And one day I’ll be fine too
But we should just end it now
Before someone gets more hurt than they have to. As for our house, I’ll move out
You can keep the dog we trained
Things soon will be like before I ever met you
Before I ever met you Before I ever met you
I never knew that my heart could love so hard
Before I ever met you
I never knew I would be enemies with disregard
Before I ever met you
I never knew that I liked to be kissed for days
Before I ever met you
I never knew I could be broken in so many ways
I never knew I could be broken in so many ways
I never knew I could be broken in so many Everyone knows I’m right about one thing
You are my only vice
And I got you addicted to trying to be bulletproof
But you have too much to lose

As for our house, I’ll move out
You can keep the dog we trained
Things soon will be like before I ever met you
Before I ever met you

Before I ever met you
I never knew that my heart could love so hard
Before I ever met you
I never knew I would be enemies with disregard
Before I ever met you
I never knew that I liked to be kissed for days
Before I ever met you
I never knew I could be broken in so many ways
I never knew I could be broken in so many ways
I never knew I could be broken in so many

Everyone knows I’m right about one thing…
You and I don’t work out

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
