Behind The Lyrics

This song is for my friend Mike Hazel. For anyone who has lost someone close to them. For everyone taken from this world far too soon. For everyone stripped of their chance to live before they got to bloom. It only happens once. 

Life. 

RIP MDH

Lyrics

Thinking back on everything I said I wanna do

Throwing out the doubts, I still have so much left to prove

I swear it’s all love now, I started off as nothing

Life is so breezy

 

Maybe I'm a fuck up, that’s me

Truthfully I’m grateful every second I’m breathing, I’m okay

Thinking I’ll make it, you got one shot

You better take it

 

We were just kids

Living for the hell of it

Flipping off the system

Making that shit irrelevant

Don't know who the fuck you thought 

I was back then 

You’ll never see him again

It only happens once

 

Life is so beautiful Delicate like a glass cloud 

Hold it close to you

Don't let it float away now

I swear it's all love now

A sunset on the east coast 

Life is so breezy

 

Maybe I'm a fuck up, you know 

Holding on, I love the feel, I won't let it go Imperfectly stable, I’m making progress

Every single low

 

We were just kids

Living for the hell of it

Flipping off the system

Making that shit irrelevant

Don't know who the fuck you thought I

Was back then 

You’ll never see him again

It only happens once

 

To all the ones I’ll always love

This life, It only happens once

You better not forget that

This everything you've ever wanted

 

I swear I'm so in love with this feeling Thankful for everything I am

Never ever could've gotten this far without

 

You know my heart is so heavy

From the love, I'm blessed with every single day 

I swear I never could've made this far

I swear I hope you know

The story behind 'Hazel Bloom'

By now you may be wondering how I came up with the name 'Hazel Bloom' or you may have just thought that was my first and last name lol. Well there is a small story as to why I decided to release songs under the name 'Hazel Bloom.' My friend, Mike Hazel is the main inspiration behind Hazel Bloom. 

He was into the music scene and I knew he wanted to be in a band which is something I could really relate with. He was the first person I could talk to about music in a long time. I grew up playing in bands my whole life, but at some point life got in the way and it somewhat drifted away. He was the one that really inspired me to get back into writing music and that seemed to reignite my passion for music. Unfortunately, he was taken from this world way too soon. 

I wanted to create a type of art that resonates not only his presence but for anyone that has ever lost somebody or something. Even though they are not in this life anymore, I wanted to make something that still projects their presence; something to show that they still are making an impact on people in a positive way. Even though they may be gone from this world, they are still resonating and they are still in ‘Bloom’.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Thank you for being here, hanging out with me, giving me even 1 second of your time to read this, listen to my music, or interact with me. Truly, it means the absolute world to me. Music and these songs are my life and all I've ever wanted to do. Music has always been a medium for me to express my self and has always been a place where I've found acceptance. I'm so glad we had the chance to get to know each other on a deeper level. My music is nothing without people like you listening. You are just as important as I am. Welcome to the family and I hope you know you are loved. See you tomorrow for our last day of the hangout in Club Emotion. Thank you again and see you there.

-Dave (Hazel Bloom)
