.socks Hey there, I know you probably won’t read this, but Robbie, I gotta tell you something.
Your song, Trying, means the world to me. I listened to it this morning and I started crying, because it was just that deep, meaningful, personal.
I was at your Brisbane concert and I was there with my mum. She was seperate to me in the crowd when you started playing Trying and when you said it was a song about coming out, but I hope she thought of me. Because she doesn’t really accept me. I told her I was bi, she immediately rejected it. Told me I’d outgrow it, that it was a phase. She thinks that it’s just some trend that I’ve gotta outgrow. And it hurts deeply.
“Cuz I’ve never hated myself more.” I hope she heard that line, and heard my pain and my rejection in it and I hope she realised how desolate I feel, and have felt ever since I came out to her. I was crying into my best friend’s shirt because I felt those words too deep in my soul to do anything but, and I’m just so grateful for it and for those tears; it puts everything I feel into words.
This song is everything to me, and I’m so thankful that you wrote it. I love your music and I feel like it understands me like no human could.
Love you Robbie, and thank you so much for being in all of our lives. 💗💜💙 #biflag #bipride #robbiecavetown #cavetown #cavetownfanart #lemonboy #sleepyhead #trying #robinskinner
