Sara Kays’ New Music Video for “Bored” Addresses Insecurity and Vulnerability
After watching Sara Kays’ new music video, viewers are left feeling anything but bored.
The platinum-certified singer-songwriter released her new single “Bored” with an accompanying music video on March 31st.
The video opens with a shot of a chess table with Kays’ classic soft style of guitar strumming in the background. Kays plays a board game with a man while asking questions ranging from small talk to God to how far he could run if a bear was chasing him.
The game doesn’t make sense, much like the game Kays must play in her head, navigating how to share her thoughts with someone she’s with. It’s easy to feel insecure — especially in relationships. So Kays, head on her knees sitting on the bathroom floor, sings her always-poignant lyrics about being vulnerable and then feeling rejected by a partner.
I don’t think I’m interesting enough
To keep this up, to keep your love.
If I end my word count here,
And I don’t say more,
Then you can’t get bored.
Known for her songs on body image, mental health, and relationships, Kays didn’t disappoint with yet another song to make fans feel seen. Listening to any Sara Kays song feels like reading a diary and being reminded you aren’t so alone.
I’ve always been a soft-spoken person and tend to keep my thoughts inside because the feeling that what I’m saying isn’t interesting immediately enters my mind whenever I speak. These feelings have led me to be pretty closed off in relationships because I’m worried that fully opening up to someone will make them realize how boring I am. After experiencing these feelings heavily in a relationship, I was in last year, I was inspired to write ‘Bored.’
