Singled Out: Najuah's Eden
It was a warm summer night when "Eden" came to us. Inspiration behind the song is a broken heart. It's about summer love, meeting someone and how quickly you can fall in love. The things you do to keep love and get love.
It's very raw and personal song. It took us a short time to write it, because it was just about that raw emotion you feel when things don't go as planned. We were both going through relationship ups and down. It's kind of like a "love gospel". Songs help you express those feelings, so you can let go of them. A way to release that energy. Eden is rooted in the trials and tribulations of love. The joy and initial experience and the loss. Also how we often feel that we need to do what it takes to keep it, even at times compromising ourselves and integrity.
I think we live in our songs and Eden is an example of this. Every time we hear it, we can each go back in time, to that moment where this "love" once existed and the feelings are evermore present again. At the same time it shows the rebellion of love. The idea that it is "us" against them. How this innate nature we have in all of us can be magical when it's right. It's just a matter of not losing oneself. But isn't it fantastic, when just for a moment you can get lost in someone else? "take me down to the streets of love...on that summer night"
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself right here!
