‘Reason’ is the lead single from my debut album ‘Oceanic’ (due out September 14). The atmospheric and ethereal indie track was written about the true story about my sister’s passing. Lyrically I wrote it from her perspective and what I wish she would say to me today. The song features a blend of live instrumentation (piano, cello, drums, guitars) with lush electronic sounds and harmonies.
Sometimes I wake up and you’re on my mind. The early morning darkness of my room, spread a kind of intrinsic sadness upon my soul. This happens a lot, and it sometimes makes me laugh at the absurdity. But I can’t deny that it happens to me, most days. It’s the end of winter, and there still is a bit of chill in the air. Spring is upon this land I live and occupy, but no warmed yet. I know that the sun rises every day, but it’s hard to believe this fact sometimes. Maybe it’s just a matter of not caring that much.
But I should care, right? Wouldn’t you say this to me? I wonder. You left me too early, and I miss your presence in the house – your laughter, your bullying, your love, you just bing you.
I open my eyes, and tell myself, why it’s worth it to go on. I’m not very happy without seeing you here with me.
Do you miss me? Will I ever hear you or see you again? What am I talking about…I’m sure you’d tell me if you could.
I feel miserable when you’re on my mind in those dark early hours of my room.
And now, I don’t want that feeling to go away. If that’s how I’ll remember you being in the living, I want this to stay as it is, forever.
I miss you sis.
