about

‘Waves’ showcases my growth as an artist in both production and songwriting. There was a lot of work that went into making it sound the way it does, like those big live drums triggered with heavy hip-hop sounds around them. Fall 2020 and its beautiful colours strongly influenced my poetic choice of words.

lyrics

The waves in the water tend to ripple to the shore
Hear the silences on the lake, it’s golden and it's pure
The leaves are falling down, currently changing course
I sense a little danger but that’s part of the allure
Basic human nature, we always want more
Go and check the back if you ain’t got it in the store
And more than half of marriages end up in divorce
I lived it first hand, I’m a credible source
And all of these unknown shades are complicated of course
Better watch what you measure or get lost in the sauce
My shoulders are feeling heavy, it's been adding to the stress
I saw death around the corner so we played a game of chess
It’s hard to get it right, living life with nothing left
Cigarettes and regrets, struggling check to check
What a mess, nevertheless I know that I’m blessed
Cuz I’m at peace with my sins and I shall never confess, yes

Lost in the waves
I’m just lost in the waves
I’m just lost in the waves
Stuck here for days
Lost in the waves

I’m just lost in the waves (waves)
I’m just lost in the waves (waves)

I'm just lost in the ...

The Moon rises, the tide comes in
I just wonder when shits gonna give
Drowning, I just can't live
If you don't do it for yourself, do it for the kids

The storm is getting closer
Tell me how I’m supposed to
Live up to the excellence of idols on my poster
Yes the pressure is applied, increased and amplified
Scared of the journey the reason he terrorized
I see the treasure in your eyes, just keep an open mind
Of course there's flaws in a design but that mistake just wasn't mine
Bathing in the darkness where the sun will never shine
Faded of the shadows cuz loves forever blind

The waves in the water tend to ripple to the shore
The silence on the lake, is golden and it's pure

I’m just lost in the waves (waves)
I’m just lost in the waves (waves)
I’m just lost in the ... (waves)
(Waves)
(I’m just lost in the...)

about

L. Teez Montreal, Québec

My inspiration finds its roots from many different aspects of life: our daily lives, emotions, and those little moments we all live through which are experienced differently from one individual to the next.

Anything that has the capability to make us feel, negative or positive, drives me to tell a story or to make the listener understand a certain emotion or moment through my words & poetry.
