Relationships can be fun, complicated, heartwarming, and heart-wrenching all at once. It can range from all giggly and romantic phase to the let’s-decide-on-life-and-death-decisions-together stage in a snap. But we’ll stop there and have R&B artist Ella Mai can describe the roller coaster ride of relationships through her songs.
Feelings, so deep in my feelings
No, this ain't really like me
Can't control my anxiety
Feeling, like I'm touching the ceiling
New makes us scared—sometimes, up to the point where we deny our feelings. But you can’t miss the way your eyes sparkle or how you catch your breath whenever that “friend” is near.
Maybe it's your love, it's too good to be true
Baby boy, your love, got me trippin' on you
When we found love, we sometimes think if it’s too good to be true. Too good in fact, that we withhold ourselves of feelings. Pretty soon, though, your emotions will show at some point.
Love is best when built from the ground
Once you get to know someone and actually like them, you would want to keep them in your life. And how would you keep them? Build a strong foundation for your relationship.
So what if I wake up with a attitude?
You assumin' that I must be mad at you
I just rolled out of bed on the wrong side, and
Now we're in a bad mood
During the course of your relationship, you’ll find the great and not-so-great things about the one you are with. Most of the time, it will affect both of your moods. But who doesn’t have a bad side?
There's no one else I trust
I put my all in us
I know the risk in love
Jumping into love means investing all of your time and effort in a person. That could be scary. But hey, life’s about taking risks. It’s up to you if this one’s worth taking.
I don't even really care who knows it
Just keep me there, keep me in the moment
Seen a lot of things, but I never seen my spirit glowin'
There are just some people who make us happy to the point that our “spirit is glowing.” When you find that person, you would always want to keep them close.
You notice everything
So I give my everything
My pain and my struggle, my friend and my lover
The love of your life will see everything about you, even your worst tantrums. But they wouldn’t leave. If you are lucky enough to get a hold of one, it won’t be a waste to give everything you’ve got to that person.
The Philippines was lucky enough to hear the stages of love according during Ella Mai's first concert in Philippine soil. She spread her music and love for her fans, ensuring them that they are not alone, whatever it is they are going through with their love stages. Sure, love is kind of complicated. But when you are a little confused or just really lost, give Ella Mai’s music a listen and you might just find the answers you’re looking for.
