Girl, I left you a note, What it said - I don’t even know But can't you reply? Even if you say no... Girl, I left you a note, What it said - I don’t even know But can't you reply? Even if you say no... See my rap game counting down, all along, all alone.. See my rap game counting down, all along, all alone.. See my rap game counting down, all along, all alone.. See my rap game counting down, all along, all alone.. Ooh, ooh, ooh, my love Girl, I left you a letter What it said - I didn't know better. What I wrote down – I blush, Now when I think about it. Girl, I wrote you a play, Starring me and you in the way, In which I thought it should be. But I didn't give you no say...

about

The debut single from LAPIS – a singer, musician, and producer from Auckland, New Zealand.

"I recorded the first version of this song in 2013 when I was turning 18. I came back more than once over the next 1-2 years.

At the 2:57 mark I back come in to look back on what happened from a different perspective. In doing so I was able to process the story, that period in my life again, on a deeper level.

At 2:57 it is like a reality check.. “Shit, this is what was really going down..” And the rest of the song – with the extended dance section and the darker tone – is really a grieving process, both for what was, and the dreams that never really were – the dreams of idealised love that never held any water. It is also a catharsis and transformation, of the pain and confusion.

This reflective and retrospective process, captured as ‘Blue in Orange’ allowed me to tie this up and move on –> from blue into orange!"
