When we’re grieving, it feels like there’s this huge hole in our hearts that can never be filled. And loneliness just compounds the pain.
It’s hard to know what to do with all these emotions. They just seem to consume us, and we don’t know how to make them go away. We believe we’re trapped in this dark place and we can’t escape.
The lyrics of Erica Bitting’s new single, Ceiling, are introspective and reflect on the emptiness that comes with grief and loneliness. But the song isn’t all doom and gloom—there’s a sense of hope that comes through in the lyrics, too.
Bitting recorded Ceiling in Nashville with the producer who worked on Lucy Dacus’ new album, Home Video. And while the subject matter is dark, the music sounds super chill and dreamy. Eria’s vocals are deeply compelling.
