Let’s Speak – Songwriting Reflections on Pandemic Life


Let’s Speak – Annika Labus



It’s all in my head and it is smart to me 

I say it out loud this isn’t the way it’s purported to be 

How do I am going and simplify my ideas 

I do know it’s a multitude I do know that it’s lots 


I stated some issues with out pondering first 

The conversations over and now I’ve a phrase burst

To remain quiet or simply smile by means of 

I get awkward and I don’t know what to do 


However I’ll say what I wish to say proper now 



My minds going a few 100 miles a minute 

There are such a lot of issues I don’t know match it 

I can discuss in regards to the matters or stuff about my day

However as soon as it’s out my mouth I don’t know what to say 


That’s why I journal to speak to myself

But it surely’s completely different in terms of any person else 

And now we have now expertise and I’m caught in quarantine 

It’s bizarre to speak nose to nose it’s not like I can press erase 



Is it nerves or insecurity  

Perhaps each however I believe I do okay I assume 

I’m unhealthy at pondering on the spot 

I gotta be sure that I write down all my ideas 


I keep quiet to pay attention by means of and thru 

I believe to myself on what I’m purported to do 

Then it’s me and I don’t know converse 

I attempt to act cute and humorous and that’s my coping approach 





I can not disguise behind a display screen 

It’s not like I’ve time to sort down what I believe 

I’ve to talk within the now

I can converse however will there be a sound?


[Chorus] x2
