[LYRICS] Give me your worries Give me your sadness And let me step inside Your head (What’s in your head?) It’s been a while And you’re undecided And I don’t what else to say (Don’t fade away) Even if time isn’t moving fast I’ll wait to have you by my side (Cause we have the right connection) You give me life You make me higher than high I can’t forget that But I don’t wanna keep loving undecided Everything is so brand new but I don’t wanna feel so overexcited If I’m not gonna see you soon, no Give me a sign You know I’ll love you So why not take the ride? (At least today) Give me the soft and give me the rough Can we just forget the past? Maybe you will let me in some day Baby don’t walk away now, Don’t want you to be with someone else (No, no) We can still have something Miles away Yeah yeah But I don’t wanna keep loving undecided Everything is so brand new but I don’t wanna feel so overexcited If I’m not gonna see you soon, no I don’t wanna keep wondering if you love me Cause all I really want is you but I don’t wanna feel so overexcited If I’m not gonna see you soon, no I’m gonna need some patience I don’t wanna lose you When can we be together? You know that I choose you Don’t wanna lose you When can we be together? It’s taking too long Don’t wanna lose you When can we be together? It’s just too long And I don’t wanna keep loving undecided Why is it that you’re so undecided? This is too deep I don’t wanna feel so overexcited No, no, no, I don’t wanna feel this I don’t wanna keep wondering if you love me Tell me what you feel right now I don’t wanna feel so overexcited I don’t wanna feel like this ------------------------------------------------------

[LYRICS] Look into her eyes And try to realign When you don’t wanna feel sad Can’t fight the tide You can’t keep doubting All your life So just become alive (Find the fire, get ignited) Uuuuuh she makes you feel brand new You must have done something right Give her your love Enjoy a nice day You both deserve to shine so bright Nothing is gonna make you happier Took time to meet somebody Don’t you agree? So give her your love Open your heart Despite the heartache Don’t wanna look back so you try to look up And now, you know when the feeling’s right This love has got you all tied up (You see her and you light up) Step by step you’re quickly falling You don’t understand how But you have finally found someone Uuuuuh she makes you feel brand new You must have done something right Give her your love Enjoy a nice day You both deserve to shine so bright Nothing is gonna make you happier Took time to meet somebody Don’t you agree? So give her your love Open your heart Despite the heartache When you get together Nothing really matters, no You were on your own and you were a bit lost Now she has become your world Open your heart Yeah You gotta open your heart Yeah Give her your love Enjoy a nice day You both deserve to shine so bright Nothing is gonna make you happier Took time to meet somebody Don’t you agree? So give her your love Open your heart Despite the heartache Open your heart And simply love her --------------------------------------------------------

What To Do 04:28
[LYRICS] I didn’t think it’d happen I know I can’t complain Love is all I wanted But not this way This remote romancing Is so hard to maintain Falling for a stranger Miles away All I know is you’re always on my mind Tell me what to do, what to do, what to do With this love Cause I’ve got nowhere else to hide I’ve got Nowhere else to run So tell me what to do, what to do, what to do With my heart Cause I am just falling apart (baby) Without you by my side We’re virtually advancing It’s so hard to explain My friends are all divided On what to say All I know is you’re always on my mind Tell me what to do, what to do, what to do With this love Cause I’ve got nowhere else to hide I’ve got Nowhere else to run So tell me what to do, what to do, what to do With my heart Cause I am just falling apart (baby) Without you by my side So what is it you wanna do? Can we just pretend this is all true? And we’ve actually met And it all works out The way it’s supposed to? And it’s like Real life And we feel like we touch the sky And you’re mine Tell me what to do, what to do, what to do With this love Cause I’ve got nowhere else to hide I’ve got Nowhere else to run So tell me what to do, what to do, what to do With my heart Cause I am just falling apart (baby) Without you by my side -----------------------------------------------------------------------

[LYRICS] You are alive and You think you can but You know what’s really going on inside you You wanna let go But are you really fine? Life feels contrived You’re gonna need some time Every time you close your eyes You think you fall You wonder now How many broken hearts You can recall But you improvised A quick way out It hit you like a truck But still you did survive How wonderful You will never know if you don’t try You wanna dive in You wanna try to Fall back in love, with any luck You’ll find someone You try to let go But are you really fine? Life feels contrived You’re gonna need some time Every time you close your eyes You think you fall You wonder now How many broken hearts You can recall But you improvised A quick way out It hit you like a truck But still you did survive How wonderful You will never know if you don’t try Hold your head up You’re gonna be fine somehow Try to see the world with different eyes You wonder now How many broken hearts You can recall But you improvised A quick way out It hit you like a truck But still you did survive How wonderful You will never know if you don’t try --------------------------------------------------------------

Circumstance 04:08
[LYRICS] Didn’t want to, But you got me upside down A distant bond, Your love has got me tied up I can’t let go And I feel my heart is beating fast Been waiting for this moment All my life Will you meet me at the airport when I land? We will never know If we never try Can’t define it’s an unusual circumstance Oh why, has life kept us so far? A weird circumstance We will never know If we never try Makes me nervous But I wanna take a chance Oh what a weird circumstance To be so far apart Now I want you, And my world is upside down I’ll go beyond, Your love has raised me higher I can’t let go And I feel my heart is beating fast Been waiting for this moment All my life Will you meet me at the airport when I land? We will never know If we never try Can’t deny it’s an unusual circumstance Oh why, has life kept us so far? A weird circumstance We will never know If we never try Makes me nervous But I wanna take a chance Oh what a weird circumstance To be so far apart A new world undiscovered I know we can’t define it Just accept what is to come We will never know If we never try Can’t deny it’s an unusual circumstance Oh why, has life kept us so far? A weird circumstance We will never know If we never try Makes me nervous But I wanna take a chance Oh what a weird circumstance To be so far apart ------------------------------------------------------

[LYRICS] It was April It was raining Saw you on a screen for the first time And I liked you Think I fell in love with the way you smiled My heart did become yours Somewhere along the line You said You can’t decide But I don’t mind I’ll wait sometime If you could know how I feel now Been waiting for a long time Our hearts would melt and beat like one And you would just be mine Cause your tender love Is all I need in my life right now Then the world would understand We weren’t mad Now I’m grateful That I found you Yeah this kind of love is the best kind Now I’ve got you But I didn’t think that I would survive My heart did become yours Somewhere along the line You said You can’t decide But I don’t mind I’ll wait sometime If you could know how I feel now Been waiting for a long time Our hearts would melt and beat like one And you would just be mine Cause your tender love Is all I need in my life right now Then the world would understand We weren’t mad Give me all your love Give me all your loving Tonight Baby don’t say no Cause I don’t wanna lose you now ----------------------------------------------------------

The Fire 03:34
[LYRICS] You know that I’m broken hearted But you still wanna try Can’t remember what it’s like To love someone I think that we shouldn’t start it I don’t wanna bring you down You never Put your love on the line Wish that you could just put out the fire I’m feeling inside of my heart I just cannot ignore the desire That I’ve got building up I feel that we shouldn’t fight it I know that I need you now It’s better To be loved than to hide Wish that you could just put out the fire I’m feeling inside of my heart I just cannot ignore the desire That I’ve got building up Why is it so hard to love Why is it so hard to find Someone we can share our life with? I think I can’t live without your love…. Wish that you could just put out the fire I’m feeling inside of my heart I just cannot ignore the desire That I’ve got building up -----------------------------------------------------------

Different 04:12
[LYRICS] I was by myself And I felt lonely I felt lonely Til now We’re very different, you are Someone who doesn’t want to break But I can’t argue with fate I wish you wanted me, I wish that you could understand That I can ease your pain And I know it’s such a long shot We can try this or not You can think that this is insane But I know that I want you And I want you to stay You make me feel Like I am more myself Like I am whole again And I know if it’s a bad day I’ll try to make you heal And help you find your strength I’m almost someone else With you I know I can try it And everything makes sense We have a special bond, that Makes me believe that I deserve To be loved again And I know it’s such a long shot We can try this or not You can think that this is insane But I know that I want you And I want you to stay You make me feel Like I am more myself Like I am whole again And I know if it’s a bad day I’ll try to make you heal And help you find your strength I’m almost someone else With you I know I can try it And everything makes sense -----------------------------------------------------

[LYRICS] Tell me a hopeful lie (why?) Cause I don’t wanna be innocent (yeah, right) Can you see desire in my eyes? (yes I can) Think I can feel you now (how?) Distance is always known to deepen the surprise I‘ll get there like the speed of light (Come and stay by my side) You and me all night You bring Instant sunshine to my life Just fantasize cause Words can’t describe us Maybe you can love me one more night Wish I could fly somewhow (now) I just can’t wait so long To have you in my arms I‘ll get there like the speed of light (Come and stay by my side) You and me all night You bring Instant sunshine to my life Just fantasize cause Words can’t describe us (oh no) You and me all night You bring Instant sunshine to my life Just fantasize cause Words can’t describe us Maybe you can love me one more night All these hours, all these months Wanting for us to collide I rather not be on my own Now I’ve found you, won’t let you go I’ll admit you’re on my mind But our love’s still undefined And I just keep counting time like 1, 2, 3, hey You and me all night You bring Instant sunshine to my life Just fantasize cause Words can’t describe us (oh no) No words can describe us It’s getting way too hot Maybe you can love me one more night --------------------------------------------------------

True Colors 04:12
[LYRICS] You with the sad eyes Don't be discouraged Though I realise It's hard to take courage In a world full of people You can lose sight of it all And the darkness inside you Make you feel so small But I see your true colors Shining through I see your true colors And that's why I love you So don't be afraid to let them show Your true colors True colors are beautiful Like a rainbow Show me a smile then Don't be unhappy, can't remember When I last saw you laughing If this world makes you crazy And you've taken all you can bear You call me up Because you know I'll be there And I'll see your true colors Shining through I see your true colors And that's why I love you So don't be afraid to let them show Your true colors True colors are beautiful Like a rainbow I see your true colors Shining through I see your true colors And that's why I love you So don't be afraid to let them show Your true colors True colors are beautiful Like a rainbow If this world makes you crazy And you've taken all you can bear You call me up Because you know I'll be there And I'll see your true colors Shining through I see your true colors And that's why I love you So don't be afraid to let them show Your true colors True colors are beautiful Like a rainbow True Colors True Colors True Colors True Colors ------------------------------------------------------------

about

After the worldwide success of her debut album ‘Believer’, LAU’s long awaited sophomore album ‘Circumstance’ is finally here.

What is it like to fall in love in these crazy pandemic times? What about falling for someone miles away that we’ve never met? Is it real love or just a fantasy?

In this new album, LAU talks about the challenges, the uncertainty, the crazy circumstance she has found herself in, the ups and downs of “virtual romancing” in the distance, and falling in love with a complete stranger that she’s never met (yet). LAU explores the bittersweet feelings of happiness (to finally fall in love again), mixed with the anxiety and the uncertainty of longing for someone that we’ve only seen on a screen, added to the frustration of not being able to travel to meet them in person.

LAU recorded most of this album in her new home in Barcelona (Spain) throughout 2021 and finished recording the album in her hometown (Buenos Aires, Argentina), creating ten fantastic Synthpop / Retrowave tracks (and a couple of Disco-Pop songs) produced by international producers like Brian Skeel (USA), Zak Vortex (UK), Ends 84 (France), Saint Innocent (France), Popcorn Kid (India), Adam Siana (Sweden) and TAKTA (Norway).

This is a truly global album, which includes LAU’s popular cover version of Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors released last year.
