TUNE Lia Rye - Novacaine
'Novacaine' is a song which I wrote almost 3 years ago. It is the first song that I ever wrote with my piano (but it is not my first song ever). After a long time of only sharing it to my close friends, making a demo instrumental and eventually performing an acoustic version, I finally managed to record the full song as my first single.
'Novacaine' tells the story of a runaway who is faced with all of the trials of being on the streets, whilst finding a way to manage their inner pain. Comfort is temporarily found in harmful things, but in the long run they do not work. The song explores dependency and how someone can change their beliefs and morals to find healing but in the end, they are only left with their pain.
Although 'Novacaine' turned into the story above, there are so many interpretations of the lyrics; it's up to you to find your own.
