The Most Brutally Honest Divorce Lyrics From Kelsea Ballerini's New EP

Kelsea Ballerini released Rolling Up the Welcome Mat -- a six-song EP chronicling the demise of her marriage to Morgan Evans, whom she divorced last year. 

"When I listen to Subject to Change, I hear a lot of self-reflection and turmoil. This is the deep dive into that turmoil. I was writing by myself for most of the project, and it was nice to trust myself again."

Here are some of the most brutally honest lyrics from the EP:

"Mountain With A View"

"I’m wearing the ring still, but I think I’m lying

Sometimes you forget yours, I think we’re done trying

I realize you loved me much more at 23

I think that this is when it’s over for me"

"Just Married"

"Yeah, it was love

Then it was just married"


"The rumors goin' around but the truth is kinda nuanced

I wanna set it straight but my lawyers say I shouldn't

And ain't it like this town to only criticize the woman?"


"And now you're saying that you're lost, and that's lost on me

You didn't ever wanna leave the house, I didn't want a family"


"Like that one time in 2019, before that big show, we had a big fight

I slept on the couch and then the next night you put on your suit

I put on a smile and sang about how it's okay to cry, dying inside"

"Leave Me Again"

"I hope you're spending Christmas with your family

I hope you're writing songs that you love

I hope you're feeling happier than you've ever been

And I hope I never leave me again" (GENIUS.COM)

Accompanying the album is a short film in which she lays her feelings on the line in song.
