Too Much

about

"I am so excited to release my first single and video "Too Much." From beginning to end I got to work on this project with my friends and people whom I trust and I am so proud of the outcome. This song is about trying to write a song, about trying to understand something you've just gone through enough to talk about it, and in the end feeling overwhelmed and at a loss for words."
- Cecily

lyrics

Don’t you wanna know how I got here? Don’t you wanna know why I stayed here?
Don’t you wanna hear, this story of love? Watch it growin’ slow.
Don’t you wanna hear the drama? Don’t you wanna hear the pain?
Don’t you wanna see the smilin’ faces, how could they leave your heart unstained?

But it’s too much, too much, too much for me to bear. And it’s too fresh, too fresh, in my mind.
How can I write a song ‘bout love gone bad? When I can’t even grasp what we had.
Cause it’s too much for me right now.

So you wanna hear a love song, but I have nothing to say.
I’ve been in this position for long while, and I don’t know how much longer I can stay.
Tryin’ to put the pieces together, but they just don’t form a verse.
And the chorus I got is too much to rehearse.
But I know you wanna know how I got here, and I know you wanna know why I stayed.
Don’t you wanna hear this sad, sad story but how can I tell what I feel.

Cause it’s too much, too much, too much for me to bear. And it’s too fresh, too fresh in my mind
How can I write a song about love gone bad, when I can’t even grasp what we had?
Cause it’s too much for me right now.

Maybe in a few months I’ll have more prospective and I’ll give you all what you want. But right now I’m sitting here cryin’ too much


Cause it’s too much, too much, too much for me to bear. And it’s too fresh, too fresh in my mind
How can I write a song ‘bout love gone bad, when I can’t even grasp what we had? Cause it’s too much for me right now.
