Gillian Heidi - Indie Music Contest April 2020
I wrote What It Felt Like after drifting apart from a close friend when she moved away. But the song is not only about losing a close friend, it is also about growing up. The song explains the feeling of knowing that moving on from a relationship is the right thing to do, but not wanting to due to the familiarity and fond memories of being with someone. It is about the realization that I didn’t miss the person, I missed the way it felt to be with them when our relationship was strong.
