Story behind the song
I've always had problems with disconnection and detachment. Life has felt like a dream to me ever since I was in middle school. So when my grandma died...I shut everything out. I felt like everybody hated me, that everybody abandoned me, and that everyone wanted me to fucking die. She died on the 8th of December, so during that break away from college, I holed myself up in my studio and just made song after song after song. The studio was the only thing that kept me from killing myself. So, this song is about how I felt abandoned, hence the ton of 'Won't you be with me right now.' I'm a lot better now, so don't worry about me, hahahah. On an extremely serious note though, when you all listen to my tracks and like them, that helps me out a lot. The reason I really started making music was because I realized I had the power to give people happiness. I want to be the person to other people that I never really felt like I had, so I’m glad that I can help you get through whatever you’re going through. And so to everybody that has stuck with me through this, and helped me through this, hell, if I don't even know you and you're just randomly listening to this, thank you. I appreciate it more than anything in the entire world. It sucks because it’s become so common because of YouTube and all that for people be all like "Thank you for this and that, blah blah blah, it means the world to me," but like, I've never been so serious about something in my life. You can ask anybody that knows me well, all I do with my time is sit in the studio and make music. For you guys. So thank you. This is Drowning, and I hope you enjoy!!
Lyrics
Hey, can you be with me right now, cause I'm lying on the ground. Don't watch me slowly drown, I'm drowning. Can you be with me right now, don't just watch me on the ground, can you be with me right now? Won't you be with me? Won't you be with me right now, won't you be with me right now, won't you be with me right now, won't you be with me right now, right now, won't you be with me right now. Won't you be with me right now, now, now, woah woah yeah. Have you ever felt alone, felt alone yeah yeah So alone that you thought that you were dead? I lost a friend she turned to stone, turned to stone yeah Took my heart and ripped it into shreds Now the days feel, like the 7th seal And I'm falling so endlessly why? Swimming with electric eels, trying hard to heal Mask on, ask on, hide all the lies. Can you be with me right now, don't just watch me on the ground, can you be with me right now? Won't you be with me? Won't you be with me right now, won't you be with me right now, won't you be with me right now, won't you be with me right now, right now, won't you be with me right now. Won't you be with me right now, now, now, woah woah yeah. I'm drowning. I'm drowning. I'm drowning. I'm drowning I'm drowning I'm drowning oh baby I'm rolling that bitch, I'm driving Mercedes Man I'm just kidding I'm driving that Celica, yeah Yeah that's my babe, yeah that's my babe uh I'm drowning oh baby Can you please come and can you please save me? I know that I'm dying. I know that I'm dying.
