Riff: Cody ChesnuTT – “Don’t Follow Me”

Nov 14, 2012

I want you to remember/I did what I did/Because, because I don’t know what I know now

from Don't Follow Me lyrics by Cody ChesnuTT

Codytakes a dark turn here, a reflection piece that puts his past indiscretions on blast. The album is all sunshine, and redemption up until this point, and to see him wrestling, still, with his checkered past makes the minimal lyrics all that more poignant.
