I Better Try – Cristina Valentina

I had a nostalgic melody in mind and wanted to develop the song with the fewest elements possible. There is something I obtain from personal experience as inspiration to include in my songs. It can be a detail or an entire emotional experience, etc. In that moment I was having a hard time reconciling my desire and fact that I was launching new music and becoming a doctor at the same time. I felt a bit of embarrassment and insecurity about how I wanted to show myself to the world. Because of that, the song talks about honesty more than anything and the attempt of being as honest as possible, making the best effort one can in spite of the fear that one may carry.

Tenía una melodía nostálgica en mente y quería desarrollarla con la menor cantidad de elementos posibles. Algo obtengo de la experiencia personal a manera de inspiración para incluirlo en mis temas. Puede ser un detalle como toda una experiencia emotiva, etc. En ese momento me costaba conciliar mi deseo sobre y el hecho que lanzaría música pronto y ser médico al mismo tiempo. Entre tras cosas sentía algo de vergüenza e inseguridad sobre como mostrarme al mundo. Por ende, habla sobre honestidad más que nada y decididamente el intento de ser lo más honesto posible, haciendo el mejor esfuerzo por más miedo que puedas cargar encima.
