I Don’t Know Why It Happens
NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO OUT NOW!
I’m so happy to finally share this song with with you. “I Don’t Know Why It Happens” is the first single from my upcoming EP and it’s a very important song to me.
I’d love to know what you think!
I’ve written this just a few days after my mother died 2 years ago. It directly came out of grief and acceptance and solitude and the awareness that when people leave, they don’t really leave, but remain in our hearts and the air we breathe in.
My experience with Buddhism and mindfulness prepared me for it, and I was able to accept grief without trying to resist it. It’s useless to be asking oneself ‘why me?’, ‘why now?’. All we can do is accept what happens to us and learn as much as we can from it.
Sometimes it is not that easy, and obviously the pain of losing one’s mother, or anyone, really, is not a burden that is light to lift. The tears will flow, the stomach will be heavy, but as long as we look at what we have now and forward, the ache acquires a different meaning and purpose.
So I sat at a piano, and tried to put all this into words and sounds.
And I Don’t Know Why It Happens is what came out.
