The Pairs - Superhuman
"Superhuman" came about in the preparation for a first ever therapy session. It’s a smattering of feelings and self doubt. It’s a sarcastic song full of negative self-talk. It’s a personal story of realizing how we get caught up in the way we’re being perceived by others instead of truly experiencing life and all the feelings that come with living. We’re not perfect, so why do we put so much energy towards trying to convince people that we are? This song marks the intention to try and drop the hyper perfectionism and accept ourselves as fallible and human. We don’t want “superhuman strength and sheer will”, we want softness and closeness and to be seen as the complicated, imperfect, people that we are.
