Recently, I got put on to this incredible young soulful artist by the name of Sabrina Claudio. If you haven’t heard of her yet, I suggest you do so now. I swear her music is the soundtrack to our lives as we all have one way or the other experienced these varied emotions. The feeling of being lost and on the journey to self-discovery, the feeling of not getting closure and dealing with a broken heart, to always putting yourself in situations to forgive the one who keeps hurting you thinking that one day they would recognize your worth. See, like I said previously, these are all experiences and emotions that resonates with each and everyone of us.
In her debut EP “Confidently Lost” she provides six tracks and here are my favorite songs from her EP. Just read the lyrics below (and if you can, listen to the uploaded videos)
In confidently lost, Sabrina begins by singing:
“I'm alone but I'm not lonely
And trying to get to know me
I'm just an outline of what I used to be
This is by far my favorite track on her EP! Just listening to this song makes me feel hopeful in finding the best version of myself and doing this with a complete peace of mind and satisfaction. The road to self-discovery isn't easy, and at times you may feel lost, but that’s ok and knowing that you absolutely do not need anyone to help you find yourself makes it even that more empowering!.
Running Thru Lovers
“We're all, runnin' thru lovers yeah
From one to the other
But I can't control how much a touch affects me
Cause I can't recover
From every new lover
While people move on so fast don't understand
How you love someone today but not tomorrow
How you pull somebody close and turn away”
This right here is the truth! I often wonder how people can move on so quickly with no remorse after tearing someone’s heart apart. I often question whether their feelings were actually genuine. Sometimes I think the one who hurts the most and slow to move on is the one who had the most feelings invested into the relationship.
“ I'm so good at forgiveness
Cause I found it for you so many times
When I think I've hit my limit
You push a bit further
And I draw the line
I keep waiting, no I'm waiting for the tide to change
But I know I'm the one to blame
Cause I always choose to stay”
Y’all, how many of us can relate to this? Often we find ourselves in relationships where we know damn well are problematic but allow our emotions/feelings to control our decisions in staying with that person. Even though we know what the outcome will be. Often times in love, we choose to ignore the reality of our situation and instead give multiple chances to the wrong person when we should have ended those relationships.
Too Much Too Late
“You're a flower
In the garden that I take advantage of
Every aspect of my nature yeah
And I know
I've never loved the way you do
When your last petal falls
Is when I try to get to you”
You know this always ends up happening right? When you move on with your life, that’s when they begin to see your worth or the value you added to their lives. People never know what they have until it’s gone, but by the time they come around, it’s always just a little too late.
Have you heard about Sabrina Claudio? What are your favorite track from her EP?
