Dead End is a spontaneous knee-jerk reaction to a love story that could have been great but ended in betrayal. “I was so raw walking into the session with Robert Wallner that it was impossible for me to stay guarded and control the pain I was feeling. The lyrics ended up being brutally honest and somewhat unfiltered.” Together with Robert Wallner we created a song that everyone who has been cheated on, can relate to. The pain derails you, and you feel paralysed for months. You wonder if it was something you did. “All I asked for was to be loved endlessly and not to be terrified of loving again”.
