She speaks in a way that serves as a little push to go and speak with those that matter to us and let them know how they mean and how much we love them. The track is truly a wonderfully crafted musical gem that speaks to our hearts and souls in a way that is so beautiful and full of magic. Enjoy!
“‘Without a word’ is one of my most personal songs. I wrote it a couple of years after having watched my very close friend’s mother pass away from cancer. It took me quite some time to be able to process and write about it as it’s such a painful and serious topic. Apart from the predominant emotion of pain I felt a lot of frustration and sometimes even anger not being able to help or do anything to change the situation.
As long as someone’s still alive there’s always hope but when someone passes away you suddenly end up in this completely hopeless place with no way out. With this song I hope I can give some people who are in this situation a little bit of comfort and let them know that they’re not alone.”
