I wanted to tell you all the story behind the song, "Sad Song," in hopes that maybe you can relate to what I went though - and that together, we can get through the tough times!!
I wrote Sad Song during a lunch break while I was at work (I worked at a recording studio so we had pianos there...) I had just started a "break" with my boyfriend (so not technically a full on break up, but it definitely felt like one!) and every day just felt like - there was no other way to describe it - a Sad Song! Every morning, instead of being sunny and warm, it was always gray and rainy outside. Instead of birds tweeting joyously, I felt like they were always tweeting sorrowful dirges in minor keys. The world just always seems terrible during a break up. And when you're feeling the loss of someone - sometimes you just don't want to get out of bed! I just wanted to stay asleep and pull the sheets over my head and never come out. And of course, everyone always says, "Oh, it'll be fine - time heals all wounds." But at the time, you feel like time never moves! Is anyone with me here?!
Here are the lyrics and be sure to check out the music video we just released!!
Sad Song, written by Erica Bryan.
Bird are singing in minor keys
The world feels heavy, weighing down on me
There's no point in pulling the shades back
The sky only cries in shades of black
Everyday is a sad, sad song
The sorrow deep and the hurt is long
I'm just living a sad, sad song
Since the day that you've been gone
I pull the sheets over my head
I think I'll sleep until I'm dead
There's no point in the world outside
I'm just reminded that you're doing fine
They say that time, time heals all wounds
But what if time never moves?
Sometimes I think I'm crazy. But sometimes, I think I know exactly what I'm doing.
