The album is inspired by my journey through a heartbreak. I seek to find acceptance and closure from a love lost. I chronicle the process from heartbreak, to losing oneself, and finally finding myself again after the ordeal. I explore emotions of anger, helplessness, yearning, and acceptance. The single Love Lost is the moment of closure; I come to accept my fate, but remember the beauty of the moments shared through love. 

Hard! There were many tough nights alone, but I remained hopeful that someday a better tomorrow would arrive. His death also reminded me how much I had to live for. In the second verse of Love Lost, I talk about how his dreams now live in mine and how I take some of his words and purpose into my work. I believe that healing will happen when you seek it. I was desperate for it for years.
