“A World Away”

I’m branching out into electronic music and investing into a sound that I enjoy! I used to think that I wasn’t “good enough” to collaborate with producers in this genre, but I was wrong. I’m discovering that people all over the world actually want to work with me. My electronic debut with JiiNYuNG was such a blast to write and record. There is so much amazing music in store! My mission is to get my name and voice featured on as many tracks in the future bass/chillstep/lofi genres as possible. My dream is to one day have people who listen to EDM know my name.

I’m grateful that recovery has given me back my joy for songwriting. Oh, yeah, I’m sober again. I made the decision to make it permanent this time. I know you probably don’t believe me, so I’m going to let my actions do the talking. I’m doing it with the help of Alcoholics Anonymous. After years of fighting it, I finally surrendered to the program and guess what? It actually works if I work it. I have a sponsor, I’m working the steps, and I’ve committed to 90 meetings in 90 days (even though I don’t know how in the world I would stay sober without a meeting everyday anyway). There is a lot to talk about, including what drove me to choose recovery again, and I’ll share it all in due time. I’m taking it one day at a time and I’m doing well. For now, check out this sweet track and stay tuned for more. It’s coming.

For you Spotify folks (like me), you can listen to the track here.

LYRICS:
Baby, this space, it drives me crazy

If I could find another way to
Live outside of all my bullshit
Then I swear, I would’ve stayed

I wish I knew what you were doing
I dream of being there and here
Darling, this method may be madness
But our love won’t disappear

It’s hard to sleep at night
When I know, when I know that
You are living life without me
But when our planets collide
We will be, we will be alright

Our universe has changed
Now that I’m a world away

I’ll work on me, you work on you
So when we share air we’ll be
Breathing hues so beautiful
Miss your face, I miss your laugh
Every day, I want you back

With hope,
Donaven
