Most of the songs in the album are about love which shares a nostalgic feel of optimism and positivity. The numbers are super groovy and fresh. The album is an epilogue of the singer’s personal life and has a vast momentum of emotions attributed. The album is a stylistic farewell to her joyful 20ies and projects as a welcome note to her promising 30ies. This 28-year-old singer pens down an abstract tribute to her past journey.
The album acts as a chapter to her experience of love and pain. In the song ‘Hi spring Bye’ you will be able to relate a contrasting paradigm of views about youth.
Spring, you who came to me as spring
Like that voice warmly calling my name
Perhaps you’re doing well I guess that’s a kind regards
You’re still pretty Hi, hi…
The song FLU is a clever rendition of love and a humorous attitude of how people deal with it. Addressing Love as a virus simply elevates the urge to relate personal experiences, because everyone in their lifetime has gone through that phase and you will agree
I can’t believe it, Oh, like a fool
I fall in love again
When I look at you, I get very embarrassed
It’s a virus that spreads all over my body
I keep taking hot breaths until I collapse
