healing for one

Healing for One est le deuxième album de Rosalie Bea. Plus personnel que son premier, ce projet plonge dans une démarche face au deuil et le sentiment de perte en explorant chaque étape, chaque émotion de ce parcours intime et vulnérable. L’album fait face au vide intérieur plonge dans le flou lumineux et obscure de la fin. La première chanson, Under the Surface, aborde le déni et le choc du départ. C’est le moment où l’on ne comprend pas et que l’on fige. La personne perdue vivra toujours en soi et on s’y réfugie. I Won’t Blame You aborde la tristesse et le marchandage. On acceptera le blâme au complet sur soi, prendre tout sur nos épaules pour retrouver le temps d’avant. Healing for One est la déconstruction symbolisant le temps qui se saccade, la colère, la dépression, le défoulement. C’est la vie qui reprend, mais en s’étourdissant, en se débattant. C’est une demi-vie. For Joy est la fin possible de la dépression et le début de l’acceptation. C’est la quête de la joie à nouveau et le premier lâcher prise. Clouds représente le souvenir de l’autre qui devient plus doux. Le temps se stabilise. C’est lorsque la paix remplace la douleur par vague. On ressent qu’il y aura une vie après, une place au-delà de ce moment. About Us close ce cycle avec l’espoir et la nouvelle vie qui commence. L’amour est différent, maladroit et apeuré, c’est vrai, mais il existe encore.

 

Healing for One is Rosalie Bea's second album. More personal than her first, this project delves into the process of dealing with grief and loss by exploring every step, every emotion of this intimate and vulnerable journey. The album confronts the emptiness within and dives into the bright and dark blur of the end. The first song, Under the Surface, deals with the denial and the shock of departure. It is the moment when one does not understand and freezes. The lost soul will always live within you and you take refuge in it. I Won't Blame You deals with sadness and bargain. We will accept all the blame on ourselves, take everything on our shoulders, to find the time before. Healing for One is the deconstruction symbolizing the time that jerks, the anger and the depression. It is life that resumes, but in a daze and in a struggle. It is a half-life. For Joy is the possible end of depression and the beginning of acceptance. It is the search for joy again and the first letting go. Clouds represents the memory of the other becoming sweeter. Time is stabilizing. It is when peace replaces pain in waves. One feels that there will be a life after, a place beyond this moment. About Us closes this cycle with hope and new life beginning. Love is different, awkward and scary, it's true, but it still exists.

01 under the surface

Are you just sleeping?

Are you still feeling

I just started to understand

 

I’ll take all your fears

And make them disappear

Very far if this is the end

 

And I will hide, under the surface

Just for a while, under the surface

‘cause you’re still alive, under the surface,

under the surface of my skin

 

Do you feel something?

Are you just dreaming?

I can’t let go of your hand

 

Give me all your fears

I’ll make them disappear

Very far if this is the end

 

And I will hide, under the surface

For a while, under the surface

‘cause you’re still alive, under the surface of my skin

 

Close your eyes

I won’t leave until you go first

03 healing for one

02 i won't blame you

Don't wanna see you going I didn't mean what I said

I've been lost in my words lately, in my mind mostly

 

But I won't blame you anymore

I will blame no one else but myself

Don't wanna see you going I didn't mean what I said

I've been lost in my words lately, in my mind mostly

 

But I won't blame you anymore

I will blame no one else but myself

Don't wanna see you going

Stay with me

There's always a place for you

I won't ever forget

Even in dreams we care for each other

I wish I could still fall asleep

The night’s loud, the lights are out

Trying to tame my weaknesses

 

Quiet kisses on my forehead

I’m on the edge of your soft skin I still feel

Dark eyes what are you staring at

you always notice when I leave the crowd

Love won’t look at me in the eyes

But fear walks me home every night

 

Don’t say I am running away

To heal alone

We are in a golden prison

Healing for one

Healing for no one

 

In my daydreams I rest on his shoulder

It takes away my anxiety

Found the best high I’ve ever tasted

Recovering since then

Quiet kisses on my forehead

I’m on the edge of your soft skin I still feel

Dark eyes what are you staring at

you always notice when I leave the crowd

Love won’t look at me in the eyes

But fear walks me home every night

 

Don’t say I am running away

To heal alone

We are in a golden prison

Healing for one

Healing for no one

04 for joy

It's exhausting being strong

Don't let anyone tell you otherwise

There are millions ways to heal

Every single one will wear you down

Try to keep your capacity for joy

Guard it with the rest of your life

It's exhausting being weak

Don't let anyone tell you otherwise

There are millions ways to break

Every single one will wear you down

Try to keep your capacity for joy

Guard it with the rest of your life

Guard it with the rest of your life

Light lives beyond this growing brighter

I know what I fear, I know what I fear now

I know how to say goodbye now

I've tried to learn

I know how to say goodbye now

I've tried to learn

I know how to say goodbye now

I tried, I learnt

05 clouds

You were the sun, winter's first cry

You made me dance on your feet like I could fly

We were so young, afraid of all

You gave me a shirt I still wear when I feel small

The world around will carry on

We had to learn to face it alone

Can't decide when, can't fight the end

Between our laughs and our tears

This is the strangest feeling of peace

Drifting away from us

Somewhere through these clouds

Skies are clear as water

We can still be

Somewhere through these clouds

Skies are clear as water

We can still belong

Moonlight on the floor, tomorrow felt breathless

Being apart seemed like we would live half a life

But for one last time, you held me in your arms

There wasn't enough space for all was said without a word

The world around will carry on

We had to learn to face it alone

Can't decide when, can't fight the end

Between our laughs and our tears

This is the strangest feeling of peace

Drifting away from us

Somewhere through these clouds

Skies are clear as water

We can still be

Somewhere through these clouds

Skies are clear as water

We can still belong

06 about us

It just felt like freedom

When you said you loved me

We saw so many face of us

playing hide and seek

 

Half asleep, half alive

The sound of you breathing next to me

Half awake, half away

The only place I feel safe

 

Promise you won’t try to change anything

Promise you won’t try to save me

'Cause between darkness and light, we become blind

But still need some time

To make up my mind about us

 

It just felt it was right

You made a home for me

We were holding back for too long

Everything I believe it was over

It was always a new start

 

Half asleep, half alive

The sound of you breathing next to me

Half awake, half away

The only place I feel safe

 

Promise you won’t try to change anything

Promise you won’t try to save me

'Cause between darkness and light, we become blind

But still need some time

To make up my mind about us
