Showered with ideas

Anyone who has ever had a great idea at odd times of day or in odd places will know that inspiration can often strike when you’re least expecting it. This is exactly what happened to Will Mercado. Read about the inspiration behind his new song ‘Shower Thoughts’ below:

“Whenever you find yourself alone for example in a shower, you sometimes think the most strangest or worrying or wonderful thoughts that go around in your head. Almost as if you’re finding yourself being showered with thoughts, metaphorically speaking.

This somehow lead me to write a song about how sometimes you hate the reflection you see in the mirror, seeing only the negative things about yourself. But what if the reflection staring back at you only sees the positive things in you?

What if the reflection staring back at you

only sees the positive things in you?

The line “Your salt on ice and wounds” is a reference to a trend that happened a while ago with people putting salt and ice on skin to see how long they can last the pain. I added “wounds” to this line, to emphasise that the reflection adding more to the emotional/physical wounds that causes more suffering. This could be interpreted as a struggling relationship.

Unfortunately men, due to social issues, are not encouraged to show any tears, or convey any emotion. This is why I implemented the line “Your weakness is not to show, at least that’s what they say, am I to blame for my pain?” To show that it doesn’t matter what they say, speak up and ask for help.

After re-reading this, I’ve come to realise that this is quiet a depressing song, hopefully this doesn’t drag you down!”

Shower thoughts

I’m so insecure
I’m smothered in lies
I’m stumbling around you without a course
All my words are without any thoughts

Cause you’re the only thing I’ve  x2
Cause you’re the only thing that I’ve ever had
Do you believe me?
Not just to please me?

Cause I’m just thinking out my shower thoughts

They’re in my head

Your salt and ice on wounds
You took my sweater
Your weakness is not to
show at least
That’s what they say
Am I to blame for my pain? 

Cause you’re the only thing I’ve x2
Cause you’re the only thing that I’ve ever had
Do you believe me?
Not just to please me?

Cause I’m just thinking out my shower thoughts

They’re in my head
Thoughts
They’re in my head

Maybe you’re just blind from your own self
Non of this determines your wealth

Cause the only thing that I’ve ever had is you

The only thing
You
The only thing
You
