‘U N D E R S T A N D  M E’

My latest single “U N D E R S T A N D   M E” reminisces on the journey from childhood to adulthood, with a deep sense of nostalgia. The lyrics reflect on simpler times, compared to the complex realities of adult life, from societal pressures to personal struggles which we all deal with. This song captures the essence of growing older and the longing for a time when life seemed less complicated and more carefree.

The chorus is a passionate plea for understanding and as my voice echoes to the audience “Understand me, please. I plead with Thee”; a cry which illustrates our desire for deeper connections and purpose as we live the mundanity of everyday life.
