Wasted Youth, a sapphic song by Fletcher
Wasted Youth depicts an idyllic relationship, a sapphic romance, away from the everyday worries. This song should speaks to all the girls who don’t feel comfortable enough to project their love experiences into an identity. As Fletcher said it herself in an interview: “I really wanted to emphasize the idea of being present in a moment and following your feelings regardless of how complicated it may feel or what people are saying to you. There has been such a shift with my generation where people are not so quick to put a label on sexuality and are really starting to feel more safe with expressing this sort of openness.” The clip was directed by Ryan Hutchins. It features Shannon Beveridge. Here are the lyrics.
