Out singer/songwriter Kyle Motsinger recently released his latest single, “You’re Missing Out,” a pensive ballad which shares the perspective of a gay man whose parent (or parents) can’t seem to get past their son’s coming out.
With a gentle piano accompaniment, Motsinger offers a delicate soliloquy on the pain rejection can cause.
You’re missing out on some good times
Because you’re too afraid to grow
We could share adventures or we could just let it go
Stay where it’s safe in your little town – Oh, you’re letting me down
You’re missing out on some good times, some good times
You’re missing out
Motsinger has shared on social media that he wrote the song over a year ago, but “was afraid to release it because of how emotional it is.”
But having given the track a listen some weeks ago, he realized he needed to let go of his fear. “I needed to release it in order to move forward.”
