Scharliina wrote her new single, Maybe, while she was in therapy recovering from a serious eating disorder. The lyrics are deeply personal and communicate the inner wars and battles that Scharliina experienced at the time.
But despite the dark subject matter of the song, it also carries a lot of hope. Maybe emphasizes the ability we all have to fight for our happiness, even in the face of great adversity.
This is an incredibly powerful message, and it’s one that we all need to hear. So often, we focus on the negative aspects of our lives and allow them to consume us. We let our struggles define us, instead of allowing ourselves to be defined by our strengths.
If you listen to Maybe closely, you’ll hear all the little nuances that make it so special. The way Scharliina varies her pitch, for example, or how she adopts a slightly different tone for different parts of the song. It all comes together to create a compelling and moving listening experience.
