about

The highly anticipated first single from recording artist, "Cecily" is ready for release on October 23, 2012.
The Song titled "Too Much" is available for download along with a video which tells a story of loves ups and downs. Cecily co-wrote this single which makes the release incredibly more exciting for the artist.

"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 lost for words.".......................Cecily

lyrics

Verse 1:
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 grow and slow

Don’t you wanna hear the drama
Don’t you wanna hear the pain
Don’t you wanna see the smiling faces
How could they leave your heart unstained

Chorus:
But it’s too much (too much)
Too much for me to bear
But 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

Verse 2:
So you wanna hear a lovesong
But I have nothing to say
I been in this same position for a long while
And I don’t know how much longer I can stay
Trying 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 story
But how can I tell what I fear

Chorus 2:
Cause it’s 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

Bridge:
Maybe in a few months I’ll have perspective
And I can give you all what you want
But right now I’m just sittin here crying too much
Chorus:
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
