A Statement from Samantha:

[This was created] during lockdown of Covid-19.

What story do we want to tell: The narrative of a girl moving through life and experiences that eventually take her out of her head and into spoken word.

The lyrics express this idea that we can only trust and live presently - being true to the moment and finding peace in the not knowing of what’s to come, allows for this transformative release of any anxiety and worry. Ultimately, making room for gratitude.
