Written in February 2020 with co-writer Rebekah Powell (Zooey Deschanel, Ward Thomas, Sarah Darling) Little Fictions was born from a persistent, niggling feeling of doubt. Doubt of the self, of life’s path, of certain relationships. An acknowledgement of the anxiety inducing voices in our heads which try to take us down, to block our potential…the little fictions we tell ourselves that drown out our intuition and make it hard to trust the journey. The song is also an attempt to stand up to them. And in light of what was about to come, “I’m sick of this place, I’ve got to get out” is a scarily presentiment lyric.

 

With so much to experience to draw from including self sabotage and the futility of blaming oneself for life’s disappointments; the duo have managed to skilfully distill several major human struggles into a single, widely relatable song.

Cleared for Sync.

LYRICS

Immovable constellation

A sky of contradictions

Terrified of wishing for more

      

It was beautiful

But now it’s different

I’ve been dreaming little fictions

And losing my conviction that you’re

Gonna fill this space

Carved by doubt

I’m sick of this place

I’ve gotta get out

Can’t blame the stars for not aligning

Can’t blame the path for how it’s winding     

Or blame fate for it's bad timing 

Choosing someone else

          

Can’t blame the past for how it hurt me

Can’t blame her for not returning

All I can do is keep learning

Not to blame myself

           

Painfully unforgiving

I gathered all the wreckage

And made it into weapons aimed at me

  

That brutal knife

In my own hand

Can’t save my life

It’s not who I am

         

Can’t blame the stars for not aligning

Can’t blame the path for how it’s winding     

Or blame fate for such bad timing    

Choosing someone else

 

Can’t blame the past for how it hurt me

Can’t blame her for not returning

All I can do is keep learning

Not to blame myself
