Is This What We Wanted

by · CYANN ·



French born Cyann shapes an earnest and bleak beauty through experimental and atmospheric soundscapes. Her work is usually centered around blending haunting keys with ethereal vocals. Her delicate but powerful voice expresses a deep sense of melancholy with a profound romantic elegance. Few would fail to be moved by the sparse frailty of the song "Is This What We Wanted", 1st single of her upcoming album.

Track Name: Is This What We Wanted
Will we find a quiet place
Before the madness of the world
Will take us appart
I see the darkness on your face
There's nothing we can change

Please, put your arms around me
Take my tears and calm me down
Tell me we'll be safe
Stay in the light my love
We'll need to be brave
'Cause if the darkness comes again
We know none will be saved

Is this what we wanted
Have we ever believed in us
Is this what you wanted
Have you ever believed in love
