New Releases Listen: Melanie Martinez – “Soap” Posted by Jesus A. • July 10, 2015

Melanie Martinez’s newest track “Soap” just reinforced what we all had been thinking: her debut album Cry Baby is shaping up to be one of the strongest pop albums of the year.

The new track plays with interesting sounds, such as that of waterdrops falling, that add a unique touch to its production.  On an exclusive interview with Elle.com, Martinez revealed that the track is about vulnerability and the feeling one gets when you’re too afraid to speak out.

“‘Soap’ was written about my current boyfriend when we were first talking,” Martinez told ELLE.com. “I felt too scared to say how I felt about him and thought if I told him it’d be like throwing a toaster in his bath. So I washed my mouth out with soap. I think anyone can really relate to this song. I’m sure there was a time in everyone’s life where they felt too scared to say how they felt so they ‘washed their mouth out with soap.'”

“Soap” was released as single on iTunes on Friday, July 10th. Click here to purchase it.

Think I just remembered something
I think I left the faucet running
Now my words are filling at the top
Darling you’re just soaking in it
But I know you’ll get out the minute
You notice all your fingers pruning up

I’m tired of being careful, gentle, trying to keep the water warm
Let me under your skin
Uh oh there goes, it overflows
Why do I always spill

I feel it coming out my throat
Guess I better wash my mouth out with soap
God I wish I never spoke
Now I gotta wash my mouth out with soap

I feel it coming out my throat
Guess I better wash my mouth out with soap
God I wish I never spoke
Now I gotta wash my mouth out with soap

Think I got myself in trouble
So I fill the bath with bubbles
Then I’ll put the towels all away
Should’ve never
Threw a toaster in the bathtub
I’m sick of all the games I have to play

I’m tired of being careful, gentle, trying to keep the water warm
Let me under your skin
Uh oh there goes, it overflows
Why do I always spill

I feel it coming out my throat
Guess I better wash my mouth out with soap
God I wish I never spoke
Now I gotta wash my mouth out with soap

I feel it coming out my throat
Guess I better wash my mouth out with soap
God I wish I never spoke
Now I gotta wash my mouth out with soap
