”All you want to achieve as a songwriter and artist is to get your music out there. You want to share it with the rest of the world and involve other people.
Releasing this song together with Corite and hopefully, you people out there supporting me will make me feel less lonely. It's a magical concept and I can't wait to do this together with you. ”
Dreamer is a song about being someone not seeing any limitations to where the love between two people can go, but at the same time feeling very lonely in the relationship. It's about being the only one who carries the weight of making it work, where you're trying to keep that spark alive while the other person's putting out the fire. About being with someone and constantly having to convince that person that your love is strong enough and that you’re right for each other. In a way, it’s a dialogue with your partner as well as with yourself.
”I spent many years trying to ”fit in” when it came to relationships, at the expense of not respecting my own needs and who I was. I wrote this song about a previous relationship where I felt like the other person completely stopped trying. There was still love there but I felt like I was carrying all the weight of making it work. And I was putting in the effort for two, which broke my heart a little. "
