Happy Again

Happy again is the 4th track of the new EP – Square One.

This track is the oldest song of the EP, it is dated back to Summer 2014. It has gone through a lot of rework and modifications before it “crystallised” into the version recorded on the album.

The song was written on a sunny day in Kos, Greece and it wants to capture the feeling of being lost at sea with no idea where to swim to reach the shore.

Sometimes in life we know where we want to go but we do not know how to get there and this is what the track is about. Also while in this state of mind sometimes we hurt people around us, not because we do not care just because we are not at peace with ourselves in first place.

But we are aware that we can put ourselves together and find the strength to find the way to shine again, we just need determination and perseveration:

 

I’ll be out again running to the sun again

and I won’t give up oh no, no matter what

cause you know it’s true it’s not about just me or you

it’s about to be happy again

 

Here the full lyrics of Happy Again, enjoy !

 

 

I sit by the water trying to get around

the thoughts in the drawer of my mind

where am I going, why am I here,

if you know the answer please whisper it in my ear

 

This is another brand new song

talking about nothing but don’t get me wrong

It’s just hard to find words

when you feel like you‘re lost in the ocean with nothing in sight

 

but you still have to find a way

you still have to find a way to go

but you still have to find a way

you still have to find a way to go

 

I ‘ll be out again running to the sun again

and I won’t give up oh no, no matter what

cause you know it’s true it’s not about just me or you

it’s about to be happy again

 

I kneel in the sand, my hands in the ground

feeling the wind, hearing its sound

nobody around, a clear sky above

looking for answers, asking for more

 

This is another brand new song,

talking about nothing maybe for too long

It’s just hard to find words, when you feel like

lost in the ocean with nothing in sight

and you still have to find a way

you still have to find a way to go

and you still have to find a way

you still have to find a way to go

 

I ‘ll be out again running to the sun again

and I won’t give up oh no, no matter what

cause you know it’s true it’s not about just me or you

it’s about to be happy again

 

 

Square One, the new EP

Remember this date: 1st of February ! This is going to be the date of our new release, Square One the new EP we have been working hard on.

So from the 1st of February you will find it available as physical limited numbered copy on our official store or on the main digital stores (Spotify, Apple Music, etc).

Who ever played Monopoly when little kids?

After completing one full circle you would get to Square One again, but this time enriched of experience and changed comparing to the first time you were there.

This is what this EP represents for me: a new start on the same game board but with a different awareness and enriched from the first lap.

Experiencing the same thing twice or three times is never gonna be the same after all, our body and brain learn from the experience so every repetition would have a different feeling. Seeing the same world with different eyes and soul.

The Art work, a picture by Maxime le Conte des Floris represents exactly this: a square towards the sky as new start to look at with optimism.

I will be presenting the new album at The Islington in Angel on the 29th of January and the official release on the main digital stores will be on the 1st of February. At The Islington you will have the chance to get one of the limited edition physical EP before every body else, so don’t miss it !

Here the Facebook Event for more info on the night, see you there!
