There’s a song I grew up on
that says songs are born like babies
If that is true, than working on the album
is my last conversation with them before they leave the house.
Before they become independent beings that I cannot shelter.
I try to prepare each song with everything it needs,
praying it will be the best version of itself,
that it would not be misunderstood,
that it would do good and add light to the world,
that it would survive changes of time and place,
that it would find a place in people’s hearts
and that it would not change itself in order to do so.
I try to prepare myself for the moment
when it doesn’t belong to me anymore,
but to the world.
And it scares me so much,
and I know this is exactly how it should be.
