about

This EP is a short reflection of growth and life lessons. From overcoming fears of the future of my career, battling creativity and motivation to failed relationships and learning from them.

While in the midst of so much struggle and heartache, I realized that all I needed to do was stop and BREATHE.

So I hope this anothology of songs moves you as it moved me to a better stage in my life.

Enjoy!

Track Name: Obeah
OBEAH
Written by C. Miller Jr

I've been waiting for so long
To garner your attention
Feeling every part of you
And gaining your affection
But sometimes I can't shake this feeling that you're giving me
I'm not blind but maybe this is something I'm not meant to see

This ain't ordinary love
Can't tell if I really trust
This feeling that I get from ya
Feels like Obeah

You play my heart just like a song
And strum me with your fingertips
And even though you're singing loud
Your melody is off a bit
You make me you make me feel like a kid in a candy store
It's so bad but oh I wanna taste you just a little more

This ain't ordinary love
Can't tell if I really trust
This feeling that I get from ya
Feels like Obeah (2x)
Track Name: One Inch from Perfect
ONE INCH FROM PERFECT
Written by C. Miller Jr & M. Williams

Keeping up with everybody
Will make you lose yourself
Trying find your way to happy
And trading in your wealth

Feels like no matter how hard we try
We’re always losing the game
Just when it looks like you’re winning
Everything’s snatched away

It feels like we are just one inch from perfect
Can never seem to get too close to the stars
We’re always gonna be one inch from perfect
Maybe it’s just who we are

Holding on to every promise
Will make you just a fool
And feeling like you’re never winning
But following the rules

Seem like no matter how strong we are
We’re never holding our own
Soon as it feels like it’s changing
Everything’s letting go

It feels like we are just one inch from perfect
Can never seem to get too close to the stars
We’re always gonna be one inch from perfect
Maybe it’s just who we are

Maybe we were meant to fall
Crash and burn and lose it all
Or maybe we were made to fly
Soaring high up to the sky, to the sky

It feels like we are just one inch from perfect
Can never seem to get too close to the stars
We’re always gonna be one inch from perfect
Maybe it’s just who we are (2x)

Maybe it’s just you are
Maybe it’s just who we are
Maybe it’s just who I am
Track Name: Way Too Young (To Be Singing the Blues)
WAY TOO YOUNG (TO BE SINGING THE BLUES)
Written by C. Miller Jr


Everyday, everyday I play your fool
You do me wrong and I just play it off, it’s cool
Oh when will I, when will I, when will I
When will I see the light?
Oh, the better question is
Why you can’t treat me right
I’m tired of hearing your song
And I’m tired of playing along
Oh, I’m way too young to be singing
Singing the blues
Track Name: First Love
FIRST LOVE
Written by C. Miller Jr


Walk a million miles for your love
I just need to find your heart
Hope it hasn’t run off too far
We don’t need to be apart
I’ve tried my best to keep you satisfied
But somewhere along the way your soul just died

Oh first love, why won’t you just tell me?
Oh first love, how come you don’t love me...anymore?

Fight a million wars just so you never see an inch of harm
Nothing much of me left to give, I need you now to keep me warm
I don’t know why you turn your back to me
My eyes are open, but baby I can’t see

Oh first love, why won’t you just tell me?
Oh first love, how come you don’t love me?
Oh first love, I can’t keep pretending
Oh first love, our fairy tale is ending

Walk a million miles for your love
I just need to find your heart
Track Name: Be Good To Yourself
BE GOOD TO YOURSELF
Written by C. Miller Jr

Hold on, be strong, one step at a time
Be wise, be kind, you’re doing just fine
Things won’t always be at your demand
Just know it’s all a part of the plan

And whenever you feel like a flaw
Be good to yourself

Deep breath, forget what you think you know
Cause life has a way of making you grow
Realize your tries are never in vain
Take every loss as a lesson gained

And whenever you feel like a flaw
Be good to yourself
Whenever you feel like a flaw
Be good to yourself
