Merely – Scandinavia

“Words isn’t always the best tool of communication. Even in music, words tend to be interpreted in a certain way because of our expectations that language is a very direct and clear way of expressing yourself. If I say something that you do not understand, is that the barriers of language shutting you out or is it your own agenda that blocks your understanding?

This song is about me trying to break free from other peoples expectations of who I am, ideas about me being a certain way because of my gender, where I grew up and how I behave. It’s also about how hard it is not to be affected by these things and trust the people around you. With words come misconceptions, maybe because of our strict rules of how to use them. Although, this song comes with words, like most of my songs. But they are for you to set free, so that we maybe can understand each other.”
