On Saturday, Debby was having insomnia, and what's a better way to spend it than making all her fans go wild? Her insomnia brought out some great ideas, once again! Since Debby was in the insomnia mood, she gave us some details on her song called, "Insomnia". Some of these details even including lyrics on her band page! But before that, she gave us a lovely introduction as to how she got started writing.
To start off the twitter explosion of fangirls late at night, she said she's going to give us the biggest secret of all. That secret was about her album.
"I moved around a lot. I felt alone a lot. and scared. And weird. I dreamt too big for such a little girl, in such a big world.I wrote sometimes because I had a notebook and nobody else. I wrote until I didn't need anybody else. And then, when it was just me and my stories, I learned that sometimes people could want to hear those stories. To understand the stories.I learned that the most important thing is not when someone understands your stories. It's when your stories make people feel understood." ~ @DebbyRyan via Twitter
When it comes to her album, it seems like Debby only has good intentions when it comes to the process. You can totally tell by the way she speaks that this move isn't to push her career forward or have her gain more money. The reason why she is making this album is to simply connect people through her music. It's to share something important to her and have people relate to the songs. It's to have people go, "Wow, it's like this song is speaking to who I am". From the sound of it, it looks like Debby has that down. In the past, she has made several songs with her brother and on her own, that we have heard. One of those songs happened to be "Open Eyes", which was meant for her best friend whose mother had cancer. That song was featured in her movie "16 Wishes", but since then, she has heard several things from people saying things like, "Thank you for getting me through this hard time". Debby's songs are already serving the purpose of making people feel understood and helping others. This album is definitely going to have a little something for everyone.
When it comes to the lyrics, Debby exploded with giving us the juicy-ness of that.
"Tossing and turning awake in the night,
Helplessly burning up in candlelight
Holding on tightly to all that is real
'Cause when the dark falls, I'll burn what I feel.
I don't think I know
How to rest in the mellow and slow
I just make my bed,
On the storm inside my head
Hours and hours in the day
And the rest I spend awake;
Hours and hours in the night
It's the rest I try to fight.
Nothing can take me,
And less keeps me there,
'Cause sleep is a beast
Polar and bare
The kettle can whisper,
The kettle can shout
The pills can pull
But they always give"
NOTE: When Debby refers to the "pills", it's not a drug reference. For her insomnia, Debby said that she usually takes herbal pills to help knock her out along with tea, but it usually doesn't work.
