New Day Album Insights "What Can I do" © 2005 Rachel Lynn Artist Insight: What Can I Do Imagine a man in his fifties falling apart in his own world: His money is gone... his success remains in tact only through his wisdom of craft. Imagine a young woman searching for a muse: a subject of inspiration and guidance. This is the story of a powerful and ultimately doomed internet romance. "Undercover Lover" © 2004 Rachel Lynn Artist Insight: Undercover Lover The main reason why we have 'trust issues' in relationships is because we cannot trust ourselves: a dangerous cycle in love. I didn't trust myself...and my ego won. "Release Me" © 2005 Rachel Lynn Artist Insight: Release Me I can't breathe...can't sleep...can't believe how he's turned out to be. It is the catch 22 of love: when a lover, that has spent all of their energy convincing you that they are your forever love, leaves the moment you finally start to believe them. Shamelessly © 2004 Rachel Lynn Artist Insight: 'Shamelessly' 'How are you girl?' A friend inquires a month after my breakup with the love of my life. 'When I found out I couldn't believe it!' She continues, 'She is so fake compared to you!' '...what?' I whispered in disbelief whilst a whirlwind of memories stormed through my mind. 'Wait...omigod...you didn't know?' She countered in surprise and embarassment. "Trouble at Home" © Copyright 2004 Rachel Lynn Artist Insight: Trouble at Home Imagine the scene: a young teenage runaway walking in the dark on an unlit city sidewalk. They can't see the earth beneath their feet through the tears welling up in their eyes. There is a decision to be made...yet there is trouble and pain in either choice they make...so, they continue walking hoping that daylight will soon come and save them from the lurking shadows. Imagine this. I did. "Torture" originally 'Making Muziq' (2004) © 2005 Rachel Lynn Artist Insight: Torture Originally, I wrote this song was called 'Making Muziq'...it was a poetic, symbolic expression of my sexual desire and frustration towards a man. It expressed a woman's innate emotional response to her intimate escapades...our attachment to the physical: a torturous endeavor if not met with equal affection. Rejuvenation © 2004 Rachel Lynn Artist Insight: Rejuvenation I had never held my head so low. I was selfish, premiscuous, powerless and out of control. I had to stop somehow, regain my bairings and finally become the best version of the highest vision I had for myself. It was a time for self-realization... for rejuvenation. Just the Way UR © 2003 Rachel Lynn Artist Insight: Just the Way UR My definition of a perfect love is a love that accepts imperfection; When you accept your lover for who they 'really' are and not for your projected 'idea' of who they are. And when you are loved in the same unconditional light you experience a sensation that is never forgotten nor taken for granted. It is the most perfect of loves...and it all happens just the way UR. "I Can't Let Go" © 2004 Rachel Lynn Artist Insight: I Can't Let Go The phone rings...my heart jumps. Maybe it's him. Maybe he wants to come over, hold me in his arms and beg me to be in his life again. As a woman, I had never been on the receiving end of the 'let's just be friends' scenario. I had never had to look into the eyes of a lover and mutually pretend like we had never shared a single intimate moment. I won't do it...I can't do it. I can't let go. "New Day" © 2005 Rachel Lynn Artist Insight: New Day We are blessed as humans with the gift of free-will. We are allowed to choose to be a positive influence on ourselves and others. Sometimes family issues, loss of loved ones and personal emotional trauma, etc. Can put a damper on our attitude towards life and can make us question our very existence. But, God has given us the unchangeable gift of a New Day...the blessed sunrise that symbolizes the birth of a new light, new ideas, new love, forgiveness and change. Thank you God. Thank you God. Thank you God.
