It's like I've built it over the last couple of months and I keep making so or I kept making new songs and I was like, I just want this to come out now. Like what happens is I'll make songs and then I'll get, like tired of listening to them over and over again and I get scared that I'm gonna play them out to my... Like I'll be... Like they'll be played out to me, not really played out like not to like come at my own songs but like I don't, you know... I just want people to be on the same wavelength as me. Like I want my fans to hear the song right after I hear it.”
