mehro ~ chance with you [2⊘21]

mehro’s lament (sound of trauma) relives a memory rethought, redoubled, that might have changed everything. “When I wrote ‘chance with you’, it was an acknowledgment that I let something slip through my fingers”, native Angelean mehro says of the track. “I let fear overpower my desires, and I won’t let that happen again.

Turn my eyes, I see you stare,
Cross the room and right at me,
Now you’re smiling like you’ve got,
Like you’ve got something on your mind

I’d love to get to a place where I’m sharing creative aspects that are unpredictable and unrestrained. And I think ‘chance with you’ is the next evolutionary step towards that vision.” Of shared challenges, obstacles, injustices, the pandemic, and of natural disasters crushing what was left, he says, “The destruction and chaos came with a sharp contrast of beauty. And in the beauty, I saw the possibility that something alchemical could emerge from the wreckage of our society. I’m still waiting.” [Lovely interview from]

Make me feel like I’m a,
Wild animal,
Shaking you are my prey
You’re all I want”

A deceptively simple and beautiful song striving to share an all-too-human trope, especially later in life, when one’s mind reaches back more and more, only to latch onto less and less. Marked regions where small changes may have had large impacts, and large changes may have led to unrecognizably favored futures. A pleasure/pain game to pass the time grasping at sunray memories, only to light fires in our minds — conflagrations of rue.

If I could go back in time,
I’d shoot my shot,
I’d risk it all,
Just so I could have a chance,
With you”
