Song #2: I Think Of You I Cry


Have you ever been in a bad relationship, you know – the completely destructive, half-heartedly, jealous, and super unhealthy kind of love, that leads to nowhere but a broken heart, and plenty of low self worth? I had to go back and write about the situation I was in, to get rid of it for good.

My beautiful sisters’ daughter Laura Mathilde is singing this with me, although merely 15 years young at the time of recording this song, I’m convinced her soul is older than a few thousand years, and I love the depth of her voice.

Lyrics


TELL ME WHY

I know it’s intimidating when we talk about all the things I like
about you and you’re akward declarations of love
It’s so silly but your whimsical sense of humor turns me on
it’s like you don’t carry any secrets at all

When will we realise, that this is all made up

So why when everytime I think of you I cry
But next to you I feel so alive
Yet I don’t want to go to deep but
How with every minute you’re away I die
I wish that you could only be mine
but in your sleep you’re talking about her

Tell me, is she voluntarily falling through the cracks of your floor
such a beautiful pretender you are

When will she realise, that this is all made up

So why when everytime I think of you I cry
But next to you I feel so alive
Yet I don’t want to go to deep but
how with every minute you’re away I die
I wish that you could only be mine

but in your sleep you talk about her

If I had the strenght to forget you,
reset you, believe me I would
i’ll wait for you in another life

ohohoh yeah in your sleep you talk about her ohohoh but in your sleep you talk about her

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,

Jonas Brøg
