Every Word You Say

by Alfa



"“Every Word You Say,” is a stunning bit of campfire-meets-coffeeshop synth ballad that has an equally painful lyrical theme.

Written during downtime while housesitting for a friend, the song was willed into being after Alfa binge-watched the British dramedy Fleabag. “I was taken in by the story and the idea that you could be massively in love with [a person] but still make a choice not to continue that love because of stronger forces.”

From a barebones demo featuring rough vocals and violin (Alfa is classically trained on strings) the track in its present form has the weight of transformative, intelligent pop: lush and layered, generous in sentiment but sublime in sentimentality, heart-on-sleeve yet calm and composed. “It’s a new sound for me, but one that I’ve been wanting to create for a long time,” Alfa shares, adding, “I wanted to bring in more of my violin-playing and bring out a percussive, groove-driven edge.” - Aldus Santos

Every word you say, want you to mean it
If we're gonna end this way, I wanna feel it.
Tried to pretend we were nothing
I always do
Had to leave this undertaken,
but I'm back to you

I come back, right back, I come back, back to you.

Every memory that we are making
they are laid out on the bed, true and naked
dreaming out loud what I knew could never happen
dreaming out loud so I could stare down my demons

I come back, right back, I come back, back to you.

Love is too real to you
Love is too real to you
By keeping your distance you can stay true
Love is too real to you
It's written in the shadows of what you do
so keep your distance make your heart true.

Every word you say I swore you meant it
but you're never gonna leave cuz you'd regret it
you were dreaming out loud what you knew could never happen
dreaming out loud you were staring down your demons

I come back...

Every word you say, I won't forget it.
