now I’m gonna have to live tall to live
up to all that how are you oh my god I
didn’t know but very excited about this
for a very long time and it’s finally
here and I hope you’re excited as I am
I’ve always been very very puzzled by
the whole concept of love you know
growing up I grew up in a normal family
and when you’re a kid you don’t think
that all these people around me they are
loving me I was very intrigued by the
concept of you know love romantic love
for me that was love and I was always
thinking how it would be if you meet
this complete stranger who would you
know make you feel these things and he
will feel the same things about you
then you will you know they’ll complete
you make you happy you live happily ever
after for me that was something I really
aspired to I think in the beginning of
my journey writing music one of the my
favorite topics was actually love so I
wrote a song about what it would feel
to be in love it’s called win bow
bloody dumb
my pada cghub
cool pattern
me Missy
Tina Tebow the Roy got to lea you are

in my botany my back
funny told Lisa come on get down

only neighbor easy
see I can lazy
you are the pattern in my back
I’m a part of
we go
so many years later when I grew up I
found the one yeah and unfortunately he
didn’t complete me yeah he made me happy
sometimes when it bought me food
there’s still something missing fell out
of love and then I fell in love again
again a couple times later I die
thinking am i doing it wrong what do I
need to do is supposed to be that one
thing that gives you all you’ve been
waiting for some time thinking how can
you not be content what is it like to be
in love and not want anything else and
just feel like you’re enough like you
have enough not want anything else so I
wrote another song it’s called Nakamura
finding a person who makes you feel like
you have it all
that you don’t need anything else you
don’t need anyone else that there’s no
distractions you in that person it’s
funny now thinking about

simple I want you to say

many people are you in here
okay you can do better than that
yes that’s why
a puzzle of a kind
hey puzzle of okay
so a couple years back oh yeah my story
continues couple years back I was
blessed with a baby and I really need to
stop calling it a baby because she’s
seven right now and just doesn’t make
any sense
but I had a child and children a very
very interesting creature children will
just make you think of things in a very
different way you know like one day I
was in my bedroom
you know shaving my eyebrows so that I
could paint them later the way I like
them so my daughter walks in and she
asked me like mama what are you doing I
said um I’m like like you know trimming
my eyebrows did why and for the life of
me I could not explain to my
four-year-old daughter why I was
plucking my eyebrows and then painting
them later you know that’s how children
they make you think of things that you
never really thought of like I stopped
because I couldn’t come up with a good
reason why I was doing it
when I had her I read somewhere that it
would be nice to teach your children all
the things that nobody taught you and
I’ve spent the past seven years trying
to teach her all the things that nobody
taught me and you’re hoping that they
will get enough to help them go through
life without going through the same pain
that you went through so I was trying to
teach her what love was and how to know
if somebody loves you because you know
the worst thing in the world is when you
don’t know everybody says I want to be
loved but do you even know how you wanna
be loved it’s just funny so I believe in
this thing that you will never learn
anything if you’re not ready for it and
then when you’re ready the lesson will
find you so when I had a baby I think I
was almost ready because I still don’t
have it all figured out I wrote this
song a very long time ago I had a huge
fight with my mom and I left home
because for me family is where we learn
how to love if it was twisted that’s
what you run with until you learn a lot
of things but we all have complicated
relationships without me so I ran away
from home and I wrote a song
I was angry I said these people who are
supposed to love me and accept me and
you know ignore all my Bhushan why why
aren’t they doing it you know my mom was
mad for something I did which she was
like had every reason to be mad I I as a
parent if I did what I did then I would
be you know very mad if my child did
that I would be very mad but I said
you’re mad at me but you should love me
I don’t get it it’s that simple so I
wrapped the song about how I wanted to
be loved
it’s cornea Katya it’s a song about
understanding that life is difficult
it’s crazy but the only thing you need
is just that somebody who will see you
regardless of what’s happening in your
life even when you messed up horribly
even when you’re not lovable even when
you’re not acceptable this does somebody
to take you as you are and just see you
the best in you all the time and take
you back to that place whenever you you
go too far from that place let’s go Nia

hey hey open it by side mommy can it by
we we haven’t relief finished with the
lessons but recently I’ve been obsessed
with another kind of love
self-love I feel like they will teach
you everything you know that will teach
you how to make money how not to make
money you don’t end up in jail
they’ll teach you how to love thy
neighbor I’ll teach you everything
they’ll teach you a romantic love but
nobody really teaches you self love I
had to learn that very very late in life
and I decided that this is what I want
to teach my daughter I want to teach her
that you will never find one person that
will fulfill you and complete you you
will never find contentment in people
and you will have to understand how you
want to be loved
before you can demand it of people
thank you very much
