about

This pretty little diss song of mine is dedicated to all the free riders in this world who speak so thoughtlessly asking for freebies. In my case or/and for most musical artists' cases, it is to get us to perform our songs for free, for a meagre pay, or simply for "exposure". To be honest, how thick and shameless can a person's skin be? So if you're listening to this, I'm hope you could relate, or at least try to.

lyrics

"Free" by Fym Summer

I don’t want to sing for free again
I don’t want your love as a currency
Said you love me, so I should sing
For your little holy wedding
Pretty love songs, could I be wrong
That you want it for free?
For a quarter of an hour
That you want it for free?

“Okay
Wait a minute.
Can you say it again
Can’t hear you
‘Cause it’s quite
Unbelievable..."

I don’t want to play for free again
Exposure is not my kind of pay
Don’t follow me you can’t afford me
You think it’s easy, or is it funny
To write a love song
To say that you’re wrong
And you want it for free?
To hold my guitar like a rock star
And you want it for free?

Don’t tell me you’re sorry
I don’t need your money
Just need you to understand one thing
Your words have gotten to me
My music is a gift
Nothing’s free!

“Hello?
May I speak to Fym Summer, please?
Oh, you’re Fym Summer!
Nice to meet you
Just wondering...
We are doing you a favour
We’re giving you a 15-minute show
To play for free
Since you’re XXX’s friend
Good friend, right? (Laugh)
We may give you free pizza
Right after the show
Up for it?
No? Hello?"

If you love me, you won’t ask me
To do it for free…Again.

Thank you to JM Wong, the music producer of Aeonix Studios, Yvonne, the designer of Vondesignspace of the music pop art cover and all the fuckers who have asked me or made me feel like I have to sing for free. These are the words I could not retort at that moment. So here you go.
