Song #4: It's Not Because Of You


I wrote a letter to my family, because they have been hit the hardest when depression became part of our world. Reason being that when I struggle mentally I don’t love, and I can’t be loved. On these day’s it’s best I’m in solitude, but thankfully I can write when i’m alone, and this one I wrote for the ones I love the most. I feel the importance for them to know, It’s Not Because Of You.

Lyrics


NOT BECAUSE OF YOU

I Quiet the dark, not because,
Settle the dust, not because
Fading to black, not because

I’ running out of time, you know, hanging on a wire you
know But i’m down, if you’re down In hiding for the night, you
know, I’m keeping up the fight you know But it’s getting hard, so damn hard

Screaming out for help is so pointless, I don’t wanna stay down, no no no oh oh

When beating on the drum, you know My heart is beating still,
you know, and i’m down, if you’re down But it’s not because of you

I quiet the dark, not because, settle the dust,
not because Fading to black, not because, no it’s not
because of you Walking the line, not because, little to
give, not because Loosing the plot not because, no
it’s not because of you

Nej nej nej,nej nej nej nej nej

A million years from here, you know, things are getting clear,
you know And i’m down, if you’re down In searching for the light, you
know, life is moving slow as you know But i’m down,
if you’re down And it’s not because of you

You just keep on walking on, you just keep on walking that line You’re running out of time, battling giants day by day It’s in every breath and i know, you’re running out, running out

I quiet the dark, not because, settle the dust, not because Fading to black, not because, no it’s not because of you

My Story

JONAS BRØG

I was born into this world being a happy and lighthearted guy. Though I liked listening to heavy emotional songs, I never understood the darkness, until 3 years ago. I started getting totally black days of depression, being completely empty, and sad inside like I didn’t know existed, with no reason really. These days became more often, in some weeks several days in a row. It got to an extreme, and I had to treat it as an illness, so I stopped crafting songs for other artists, and I started writing only as therapy. In trying to deal with the dark side, 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 for sure the slowest producer I know of,and I throw most idea’s away, tweak my songs endlessly, not because I enjoy it, it just takes me forever before I feel it sounds ready for a stranger’s ear. I’m a strong male person, but i’m not ashamed of sharing my journey in finding a way to live with depression. I need to get out of my head more, and it definitely helps to be open about it, especially through writing songs. in all honesty, it’s been a while since I felt some butterflies in my stomach about anything, but now I feel sparks doing this. So here I am, releasing my own songs for the first time in my life.

Thank You for listening,
