Sometimes, as women, the world expects us to be the sweet, sappy romantic ones. Sara Bareilles’ “Love Song” makes a plea against forced sentiment or the expectation that women have to do something to keep a man around.

We all know what it’s like for this to be expected of us or being forced by ultimatums, as expressed by Bareilles’ lyrics, “I’m not gonna write you a love song/’cause you asked for it/’cause you need one, you see/I’m not gonna write you a love song/’cause you tell me it’s/Make or break in this/If you’re on your way/I’m not gonna write you to stay.”
