"Coming Out" Hey RICHARD Debuts New Music Video

11/15/2021

This song is dedicated to all of the LGBTQ+ folx who lost family members when they came out. Hey RICHARD loves you just the way you are. Even though we can have chosen family, it doesn't make the hurt disappear from losing the people that raised you because of bigotry. We hope this song helps straight cis folks understand, and queer folx feel seen.



"Coming Out" is the first single off of Hey RICHARD's self-titled EP.

Written by: Krystle Baller - Lyrics, Vocals, Bass Guitar

Sarah Kuhaneck - Guitar, Backing Vocals

Savanna Baxter - Synth

Laura Staples - Drums, Backing Vocals

Produced by: Genevieve Palmisano


Hands on the sink

Our eyes meet

I know who I am

I know who I am

My heart sinks

Skips a beat

I'm gonna lose them

I'm gonna lose them

I'm gonna lose them

I know I


(am coming out)

Maybe not you should run and hide

(they'll come around)

They're not ready shriveled up inside


Hands on her cheek

Our eyes meet

I know who I am

I know who I am

My heart sings

Skips a beat

I'm gonna lose them

I'm gonna lose them I know I


(am coming out)

Maybe not you should run and hide

(they'll come around)

They're not ready shriveled up inside


I don't have a mom

She's not dead

She thinks I'm broken

I don't have a dad

He's not dead

He thinks I'm broken

I don't wanna care but I do

I don't wanna care but I do

I've got news for you

I'm not broken

I'm not broken

I'm not BROKEN!


(I'm coming out)

Maybe not, you should run and hide

(They'll come around)

They're not ready, shriveled up inside
