About

“She’s Not Good For Me” is a song I wrote during my recovery from depression. One of the most difficult things was to learn to fully accept myself including the part of me that took me to those dark places. Especially to find the balance facing those shadows without letting them trigger and take me down again. Putting that into words is pretty hard and when I finally wrote this song I played it many times to myself to let it sink in. “I know I have loved her before, but she’s not good for me and she’ll never be”.Personifying that part of me helped me accept her and treat her with grace while still setting clear boundaries. “Don’t you dare take me there again” - I hear her but I no longer follow her call. 

This deeper work while finding myself again was supported by some amazing music and connections, some of which have made an impact on the song. The line “I can hear her cry from the bottom of the Abyss” alludes to a song that deeply moved me at the time by the wonderful Joey Collins. Another wonderful artist friend who’s music has helped me get through cloudy days a lot is Jory Avner, so I couldn’t be happier that he played the acoustic guitar on the songs recording. And of course my wonderful friend and producer Dominic Romano added his magic to the song too, his music and friendship has been a guiding light through the process of sharing this vulnerable part of my story with the world.

This is one of my most introspective songs, that focuses deeply on my relationship with myself. And yet it reflects beautifully that even in those moments I was never alone. We all have our shadows to overcome, and knowing that others have climbed the mountains we are struggling with is deeply comforting.

 Recovery from mental health is not at all linear and coming to terms with that is hard. I still have triggers and tough moments, but I have better tools and a new perspective to deal with them in a compassionate way. This song is a testament to that process that brings me great comfort, I hope it can make you feel seen on a cloudy day.

Lyrics

Just one more dance
Give me a chance
Don’t you dare take me there again
There’s fire in the sand
Shaking devils hand
Don’t you dare take me there again

Oh I know
I have loved her before
But she’s not good for me
She’s not good for me
She’ll never be

Drifting in the ocean
She had my devotion
Don’t you dare take me there again

Oh I know
I have loved her before
But she’s not good for me
She’s not good for me
She’ll never be
She’ll never be

She’s been swallowing my eyes now all I see is darkness
I can hear her cry from the bottom of the abyss
She’s not good for me
She’s not good for me
She’ll never be

Luna Keller - She's not good for me

What the press says:

"Overtly it is the process of recovery; however, the surreal intensity and raw manner of, well, lifting you out of your body with a soul-stirring, skin-chilling, heart-aching feeling makes it something indescribable. Her new single, ‘She’s Not Good For Me’ captures the line between desperation and understanding that we call acceptance."
Other Side Reviews

Each track so far has been full of astute and vulnerable lyrics and storytelling imagery all brought to life through Luna’s compelling vocals and captivating folk pop arrangements.
She’s Not Good For Me is no exception. It makes the point that recovery is never a straight line through a gentle yet melancholic acoustic arrangement and emotional lyrics that leave it all out there. They act as an internal dialogue in the verse before providing a sense of release in a pleading chorus.

York Calling

"While this intimate number is not host to an overpopulated arrangement, it utilizes the sparseness of the production to build a bridge between songwriter and listener– after all, it is often these emotional bonds that lead us to music in the first place. “She’s Not Good For Me” focuses on the raw sounds of an acoustic guitar and Keller’s magnificent vocal, divulging lyrics that introduce us to her inner struggles as though they are an entity. "
Up To Hear

"She's Not Good For Me finds the talented artist embracing vulnerability as she delves into the challenging process of fully accepting oneself, including the darker aspects that led to moments of turmoil. What I like the most about this song is its warmth and how comforting it sounds, with Luna Keller's enchanting vocals capturing our attention from start to finish."
