about

Lyrically it refers to the pangs of being homesick and missing interactions you used to have and generally how simple everything used to be. However, in the same brush, it deals with the realisation that people and situations change over time and so do you. It was written from an existential place of worry, I just felt extremely irrelevant and everything that used to define my identity had worn away. It tackles the longing to be remembered and perceived in a certain way, and the realisation that this is such an unhealthy way to live. I guess if there’s a main takeaway I would want from Nerves, it’s that you should always try to live through an internal locus of evaluation. From personal experience, if your internal dialogue is shaped around people having to think of you in a particular light, this can be a pathway to low self-esteem.

Track Name: Nerves
the sun spilled pavement back home waiting
miss the thought of you never letting go
a left arm raised into my clavicle
breaking open every time im home

cos you know the words you said to me
(over time)
a clearer window into why
(extend your line)
the finer lines under your name
signal will you still remember me
will you still remember me


the same intentions rotting in your head
fighting boredom with my leg up on the armrest
the gravel walkway sinking every step
carry on, carry on monotony is dead

cos you know the words you said to me
(over time)
a clearer window into why
(extend your line)
the finer lines under your name
signal will you still remember me
will you still remember me

and it's a painful reminder to know you interlock my dreams
there's something communally home sick with this city
is it worse to feel an introspection
blonded over by your hair
can I kindly care but distance myself
from the scenery it burns
you must have hit between my nerves
i’m getting older and it hurts
let me know if it's deserved
you must have hit between my nerves
