TRYING _ My latest EP

Updated: Sep 21

You know that feeling, that emptiness when you're feeling down, lost, unsure of what path to continue with. You're at a crossroads, but you DO know things will eventually become clear again. You WILL figure life out, you WILL re-discover yourself. You don't know exactly when, but with each passing day you feel a bit more positive, a bit more yourself. A bit more awake and intune to the things you now desire in life...A little less "lost".


Emma sorta gets it...

 

Well if you've ever felt this way before, I urge you to save the date for my latest EP, 'TRYING', set for release, March 25th 2022.





Until then, check out the lyrics to the titled track "trying". A song written during the pandemic, well, the second part of the pandemic- 2021.


After feeling lost for quite some time, which is where the song "Lost your way" comes from, I went through a period in my life where I felt completely overwhelemed to get back out there and "try" again. Try to date, try to fix my career, try to find my inner-happiness- But all I have ever really done was "try" to be or "try" to achieve my goals. I felt flipping exhausted, and I wasn't ready yet to become a post pandemic person.

I mean what was the point anymore? So much has changed. I changed. Did people even care what I had to say, or sing about or write about anymore? Or did they ever even care from the start?



 

Maybe you'll feel connected to a line or two from the song, or maybe you won't. Not everyone who has a cat knows what a smelly cat smells like... <--- too much?


But If you don't, I do know SOMEONE out there must and will feel connected to it. And I felt like this, others must be feeling the same way too.


So...


I now present to you the lyrics to TRYING!


 

TRYING

Verse 1

I gotta write about this,

I gotta write about this pain.

It’s the only way for it,

Only way to help it fade away


Just wanna stop these tears

Just wanna take a pause on life,

But I can’t-

so Imma sit right here until I disappear,

why can't I disappear, away…


why can't I disappear, away…


Verse 2

I haven’t moved from my,

Haven’t moved from my couch in days.

Everything with my career is now virtual anyways,


So I haven’t written a song,

Haven’t written a word down in months,

But who cares-

I feel like no one cares, I feel like no one cares, I feel like no one cares


CHORUS

So I keep trying i try and I try and I try and I try and I try

So sick of trying and trying and trying and trying and trying and trying

So I keep-

trying i try and I try and I try and I try and I try and i try and i try and i try

I keep on trying, ohhh I keep on trying, try-ing


BRIDGE (10x)

I wanna be seen, I wanna be heard, I wanna be loved, I wanna be valued

I wanna be seen, I wanna be heard, I wanna be loved, I wanna be valued

I wanna be seen, I wanna be heard, I wanna be loved, I wanna be valued

I wanna be seen, I wanna be heard, I wanna be loved, I wanna be valued

I wanna be seen, I wanna be heard, I wanna be loved, I wanna be valued

I wanna be seen, I wanna be heard, I wanna be loved, I wanna be valued

I wanna be seen, I wanna be heard, I wanna be loved, I wanna be valued

I wanna be seen, I wanna be heard, I wanna be loved, I wanna be valued

I wanna be seen, I wanna be heard, I wanna be loved, I wanna be valued

I wanna be seen, I wanna be heard, I wanna be loved, I wanna be valued


 

Since writing the titled song TRYING, one day I just decided to be "done" with trying and feeling lost. To just do. To live passionately again. and #justbee.

And then one day, I feel it. That unexplainable passion for something, or someone new. It hits me, and I started to think, this is it. It has to be it. The other side.


That is when I wrote the last track of the EP, Ijustseeus'dancin' . A song with promise, a taste for passion, and a feeling of I don't give a f*ck anymore!





THIS is that EP.

The calm before the storm.
