Listen on Spotify:

So often we’re forced to pretend to be happy or pretend to feel a certain way for the sake of what we feel other people may think, and by doing so we lose a sense of we actually are. For me, it makes experiencing life through your own filter and emotions, something that’s not... real.

Sometimes, well... looking out for someone to help you feel alright again isn’t what you need to do. It’s looking in, and reigniting the authentic you, the you that knows how you actually feel. I hope you enjoy it and can relate to it :)



Wipe the tears from my eyes
Kinda funny, I wasn’t supposed to cry.
But all these tears turn into dust,
and their ashes flickered light
right before they died.

It’s time for me to go,
it's time for me to forget about it,
and move on with our time.

It’s so easy just to die away,
but to go to without goodbye...

And here we are, sitting behind the darkness,
Our time is fragile, like the tears on your cheek.
I pretend too much, but I keep on fighting through.
And so even if you fade away,
your light will still shine through.

Maybe fake it till you make it is all you gotta do,

To stay alive.

And here I am, running round in circles,
running out of sight, running out of mind.
I say I’m fine, when all I want is love,
And so even if you fade away,
your ashes will still stay.

So maybe letting go, and saying goodbye, is the one thing I should do,

To stay alive.

And there you are, sitting behind my shadow,
sitting slightly too far out of reach.
So once again, I’ll walk on alone,
Just the thought for once maybe I could be with somebody else.

Maybe love yourself, before someone else, is what it really means,

To be alive.
