An anthem for all of those who want what they simply cannot have, ëmmë soundtracks something lost in his dynamic “Don’t Make Me.” An ode to the gut-wrenchingly unattainable, “Don’t Make Me” is available for streaming and purchase.
“‘Don’t Make Me’ is an anthem for everyone that wants something they can’t have – something lost, in the past, or unattainable. I wanted to write about that moment when you’ve been with someone but life has moved on, and no matter how much you want to be back with them, you just can’t. The pain that thinking about them causes and the longing that you just can’t satisfy. I think we can all relate to this in some form.” – ëmmë
For all there is good in love and relationships, the bad somehow finds its way to creep in. Memories of the loving times shroud our memories in a pink fog, with all of the shortcomings and failures cutting like dark daggers in the haze. Oftentimes, the bad becomes all consuming, and memories are consumed by pain. Yet, what happens when we take a step back and allow ourselves to focus less on those painful moments, and more on the loving memories? As Maddy says, “You realize you can love someone without being IN love with them.”
“Don’t Make Me” is a tale of desire, longing, and ultimately, comfort in our own emotions. ëmmë and takes listeners on a journey of a love that once was, and come out confident and powerful as ever with their heads and hearts in the right place. Watch this space.
