Indie/Rock singer-songwriter Holly Auna recently released her new single, “Water.” You can listen to it HERE!
With heartbreaking lyrics like your world keeps on turning without thinking twice about leaving me out, “Water” (co-written with Lydia Dall and John Townsend) is sure to evoke emotion amongst listeners.
“We wrote Water about the pain and longing you feel when you’ve lost someone you love – someone who has the choice to come back to you, but doesn’t,” Holly explains. “As the song goes on, the melody and production continuously build to match the near angry feeling of realizing the person you really love isn’t coming back this time.”
