Sweeter Thingswas written at a time when Jacqueline Tucci was feeling frustrated with the state of the world. She wanted to write about it and use her voice through her music, but felt nervous about possibly stepping on some toes in doing so.

This song is about shedding those insecurities and finding the confidence to speak your mind. It’s a statement that Jacqueline won’t put herself in a box to meet someone else’s expectations. She isn’t trying to be sweet – she’s trying to be honest, and right now she has something to say.

Sweeter Things emphasizes the importance of being true to yourself and speaking up for what you believe in. The lyrics are tongue-in-cheek but the message is sincere. 

A lot of women, in particular, sometimes feel like they need to live a certain way based on someone else’s standards, but it just isn’t realistic. You know what matters to you and you should stand up and speak up for that.
