I like to sign “Love, Always.” whenever I write a letter in English (yes, I still write letters) – it is also the subtitle of my website, and a personal motto that I base my interactions on. I think that love is such an important part of life, it should always be the first intention someone puts into an interaction. I know it is not the case, unfortunately, and I understand how hard it is sometimes to come forth with a giving attitude, but I also know that love is a power that should be shared with most.
Always is a song about a strong love, a young love, an everlasting love, and how it makes me feel.
Always is a state of the heart, a profession of love to a happy relationship, that I hope will last forever.
That moment when you know a connection is only one sided but you cannot help your heart from getting involved. If you have never been in this situation, I urge you to try and avoid it – – – but it is hard not to let your heart win.
My story takes place in France, where I met a lot of men through various means… Of course, one of them was the least emotionally available person I could ever meet. He was obnoxiously confident, really full of himself, but he was smart, funny and ambitious, so I liked him a lot. I thought I could handle a fling with him, but I ended up getting my heart broken by his ego. I did not blame him, he was always straightforward about his intentions. But I did blame myself for letting my heart get involved, and I promised myself that I would remember the feeling to never encounter a heartbreak again… Well fast forward a few years and a similar thing happened to me in Canada.
This is Broken… broken is a love story, a sad one.
I live in Toronto, Canada, and I was pretty fortunate to have found a place close to Woodbine Beach as soon as I arrived. I love going to the beach, at any time of the day, no matter the season, walks on the beach always calm me down, put my mind at ease. I always get peaceful vibes from the Lake that inspire me to write.
I went to the beach yesterday and took pictures and videos that have given me inspiration for a couple of lyrics. Positive lyrics and a positive melody, it’s a song about getting back on track after almost giving up.
It’s a very personal song, because I contemplated quitting music for a moment last year. Between the pandemic, the necessity of finding a new place, the loss of some friends, it was a tough time for my creative mind, and I thought I would be better off not playing music/singing/writing songs. I was wrong! And thankfully, I am still able to find inspiration in landscapes, peoples’ smiles and quietude!
Here are some of the pictures that have inspired me (I don’t retouch the photos that I take, so they are a bit raw, just how I like them):
