Song #1: Tell Me Why


Ever felt overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and unable to see the little things that make life worthwile? You start loosing connection with the people around you and eventually to yourself. I’m singing this to my burnout, wishing it’s a different entity, in a different body – while playing some loud banging drums, letting all emotions out.

Lyrics


TELL ME WHY

You knew it all along, burdened by a web of fear
How did it get so dark, you had me where you wanted from the start
You really took your time, in breaking me bone by bone
Helpless like a dear going down, enjoying every minute every round

I’m holding on to nothing, why’d you leave me this way

I was burned by the fire hung by the stars caught in the middle
of Venus and Mars

I was drowned by the ocean Head to toe in the flood
I did everything to please you but if that’s not enough

Tell me why Tell me why

I had to watch my back, felt your breathing down my neck
Frozen my heart to the core, right in the middle of your storm
Are we having fun yet, like the time of your life?

I was burned by the fire hung by the stars caught in the middle
of Venus and Mars

I was drowned by the ocean Head to toe in the flood
I did everything to please you but if that’s not enough

Tell me why Tell me why

On and on and on you keep me in a lockdown On and on and on
you keep me on a leash Your lack of empathy never stopped me
fighting Please tell me why, tell me why

Tell me why Tell me why

My Story

JONAS BRØG

I’m a writer, I have to write, I need to share my stories. Everything I sing about is stuff i’m going through. I also drum, because it’s the only way I know how to move to music, I can’t dance, so i drum. I’m the slowest producer I know of, I throw most tracks away, and I tweak my songs endlessly, most of them for years, not because I enjoy it, it just takes me forever before I feel it sounds ready for a stranger’s ear. I need to get out of my head more – in all honesty, it’s been a while since I felt some butterflies in my stomach about anything. I’ve had quite some life challenges the last 2 years: insomnia, completely burned out, dark days of depression, the whole shabang, but now I feel sparks doing this. So back in the studio I am, sweating, bleeding fingers, breaking cymbals, drumheads, and plenty of drumsticks: all I want right now is to feel better and perhaps on my journey, I can make someone else feel better too.

Thanks for listening,

Jonas Brøg
