“You ever heard of the saying when you’re born in a burning house you think the whole world is on fire? That’s an analogy for how my life felt growing up in Montreal. I feel like that fire stopped for me when I moved to Repen in around 07-08.
What broke my heart was realizing that the world didn’t stop burning for a lot of people I knew and grew up with. Matter of fact, that fire only grew bigger as we got older. The flames kept me intrigued.
Hiding in the snow I always fantasized about going back. But what if I burned myself, or the people I love. Is it worth the risk? What would she think of me? The pressure from spending my days walking on eggshells. Watching this fire intensify. Far from hell, but still not the star they can rely on. It was inevitable, at the end of the day everybody’s tryna make it home. which led me to make this song.”
