from the forthcoming album, “nurture”

Lyrics:

Verse:
Is it fate?
if it’s not easy, it must not be
At that age
I cherished the flowers beneath my feet
But then something must have changed in me,
I used to feel so light
Now I’ll try,
I just want time

Pre-Chorus:
Wait again,
I will be much better then
Holding on, I said:
“I will be much better, then”

Chorus:
Look at the sky, I’m still here
I’ll be alive next year
I can make something good, oh
Something good
Look at the sky, I’m still here
I’ll be alive next year
I can make something good, oh
Something good

Verse:
Are you close?
Shouldn’t it come to you naturally?
And everyone knows:
You’re losing your gift, and it’s plain to see
But then something must have changed in me,
I don’t fear it anymore
Now I’m sure
I’m sure

Bridge:
Look at the sky, I’m still here
I’ll be alive next year
I can make something good, oh
Something good
Look at the sky, I’m still here
I’ll be alive next year
I can make something good, oh
Something good

Pre-Chorus:
Wait again, I will be much better then
And suddenly, I’ve restored your faith in me

Chorus:
Look at the sky
Look at the sky, I’m still here
I’ll be alive next year
I can make something good, oh
Something good
Look at the sky, I’m still here
I’ll be alive next year
I can make something good, oh
Something good

Outro:
Look at the sky, I’m still here
I’ll be alive next year
I can make something good
Something good
Look at the sky, I’m still here
I’ll be alive next year
I can make something good
Something good

sometimes when making music or art, we can think of ourselves as working alone. But that isn’t ever really the case — if I think about it, if I was raised in total isolation without exposure to culture, I would never have come up with any of the concepts of harmony, rhythm, twelve notes in a scale, the idea of chords, the idea of melody, the concept of a ‘chorus’ or ‘verse’ or ‘drum’ — much less would I be able to physically build an instrument, build a computer, or write music production software. Everything we create is, in essence, a collaboration with millions of strangers. And by creating and sharing our ideas, we’re afforded the gift of being able to contribute to this legacy. I think of the story of human creativity as this beautiful tapestry that each of us is given the very very brief opportunity to sew our own patch onto.

the “Look at the Sky” video is about the beauty I find in this cycle. where the meaning of the song is more directly about the value of hope and resilience in the face of despair, with the video, i wanted to extend the idea of ‘being alive next year’ from being literal into being a metaphor about the things we can contribute to this world that will outlast us.
