[New Music] Melis – Flower

Melis - Flower
Melis - Flower

Half Czech, half Turkish; Melis is a singer/songwriter with sensibility that is hard to get by in the music realm these days. She’s a former songwriter for duo IYES and she recently released a self-produced demo track called “Love Song Idea” she managed to rescue from a broken hard drive. Topping multiple charts including the coveted Hype Machine’s, she proved once more then she had the skillset needed to become a great solo singer-songwriter.

Melis cements her undertaking with her new debut single (and not a demo) from her ‘Parallels’ EP with a song named “Flower” dedicated to her father. Touching on subjects such as relationship let-down and break-up in the most endearing and understanding way putting once again her sumptuous vocals front and center.

Melis explains:

Flower is the track from the EP that really holds a special place for me. I wrote it during 2016 which seemed to be a bit of a rough patch for me. The sentiment of the song is that going through sadness and being in a dark place isn’t forever. There is hope and better things, if only one doesn’t give up. This song is the encouragement for that. I recorded the idea, like Love Song Idea, on my iPhone. I began to record parts of it in my apartment and in a small Berlin studio space with Josh Christopher.

LYRICS

Flower

You could be
Human of the century
Taking care of everything but it would lead to nothing
You could be
The lover everyone longs for
The lover some people die for but it would lead to nothing

And all I need in you is all I see in you.

So love what you know
Don’t have no doubt about it
Leave her alone
and don’t stop now
It’s just a bump in the road with distance to go
So just don’t think about it,
and wait for the snow
She’ll feel so cold about it
Fearful and low
And don’t stop now
It’s just a bump in the road with distance to go
So just don’t think about it

You and me
We’re living in an open sea
A thundering blue destiny that always leads to nothing
You could be
The flower I was meant to be
There’s petals falling off of me, the sun is doing nothing

And all I need in you is all I see in you.

So love what you know
Don’t have no doubt about it
Leave her alone
and don’t stop now
It’s just a bump in the road with distance to go
So just don’t think about it,
and wait for the snow
She’ll feel so cold about it
Fearful and low
And don’t stop now
It’s just a bump in the road with distance to go
So just don’t think about it.

and love what you know
Don’t have no doubt about it
Leave her alone
and don’t stop now
It’s just a bump in the road with distance to go
So just don’t think about it,
and wait for the snow
She’ll feel so cold about it
Fearful and low
And don’t stop now
It’s just a bump in the road with distance to go
So just don’t think about it.
