this is the album cover of my first ever ep - 'acorn'. i will tell you some inside information about the songs! the three songs represents - growth, encouragement and determination.

acorn (growth)

the first song of the ep and the ep name. 'acorn' represents growth and the will to always be better. this is basically how i feel about my music journey and other elements in my life - i always strive to be a better person, helper, friend, singer songwriter and creator.

this is really not easy, there are sometimes moments when i feel really far away from my ideal self. there are sometimes doubt. but I'm aware of these thoughts and 'acorn' focuses solely on a good, constructive and empowering mindset i want to adopt. i use to think that we are never finished projects. we will always keep exploring, learning and growing. "what we strive to be. everything can start as a seed, what we believe, will strive into a mighty tree."

ACORN LYRICS What lies ahead

Life goes by while we wait in this shell

A secret I can tell

The rebellious act of being myself

Being myself

Growing strong, rising tall

Far to go, yet feeling far from small

How perfect are the lies, they're weak

We can't speak up but still our hearts speak

What we strive to be

Everything can start as a seed

what we believe,

will strive into a mighty tree

Feel the ground as we sow

Water, sunshine, watching us grow

Something is born

One day you'll know I was an acorn

What we strive to be

Everything can start as a seed

what we believe,

will strive into a mighty tree

Feel the ground as we sow

Water, sunshine, watching us grow

Something is born

One day you'll know I was an acorn

I was an acorn

I was an acorn

here for you (encouragement)

'here for you' is an upbeat heartfelt song that i enjoy listening to and playing. it's dedicated to a close family member, who got into a destructive relationship. the song is a reminder that things will pass and everything will be ok. one day you will be standing there, thinking back about the hard times and feel really good about yourself. you will always rise again.

HERE FOR YOU LYRICS Another broken story of a another bursting heart You’re floating, flying, tumbling, You don’t not know where to start

A bitter after taste and wondering how it all went wrong I know it too, I’ve been there

A storm is inside you to break you apart I know, it’s been hard on me too

So – oh, oh, oh It’s a part of this journey To feel something inside As never before

So – oh, oh, oh Keep your head up, it’s alright And if you ever need someone, you know I’m here for you

I know the tears you’re crying I know how hurt you are Even if you never want it Your love has falled apart

But soon the storm is passing You’re quite content with life I know it too, I’ve been there

A storm is inside you to break you apart I know, it’s been hard on me too

So – oh, oh, oh It’s a part of this journey To feel something inside As never before

So – oh, oh, oh Keep your head up, it’s alright And if you ever need someone, you know I’m here for you

So – oh, oh, oh It’s a part of this journey To feel something inside As never before

So – oh, oh, oh Keep your head up, it’s alright And if you ever need someone, you know I’m here for you

A song in the evening (determination)

even though the song is in minor key, the message of the lyrics is about determination. it's about the strong will to move on from something bad, to start a new chapter and to be good to yourself.

'a song in the evening' is a symbol for break ups, a mix of my own experiences from the past, 'the evening' stands for the end of a relationship, like a sunset. (i've got a song on my youtube channel that is called 'a song in the morning', it's about the beginning of a relationship.)

'a song in the evening' is definite. sometimes you have to tear down the past to make room for something better and healthier.

A SONG IN THE EVENING LYRICS The evening where it all started where we were parted. It slows down. Isn't it thrilling? Or are we willing to read each others message in the snow? A turning point from where we need to go.

A need of closing a chapter a moment captured.

Can you turn words into action? I hold my question forever. Writing a story of love and glory. To read each others eyes now when we go. It's even late but we are walking slow.

A need of closing a chapter a moment captured.

I'm closing this chapter. I need my facts straight. Turns out we're running late.

now, with more insight of the ep songs, i really hope you enjoy them!
