“You can’t have it all your way. Everyone knows that you are still into me. They see the way you stare when I am near. You can’t keep your eyes off of me. I know it’s hard for you to say that you’re sorry.” – lyrics

‘What You Want’ tells an intriguing tale about a young woman who is waiting for her ex-partner to come back and get her. But her indecisive ex won’t do that because her ex doesn’t know what he wants. Therefore, she tells him, “How could you talk about me behind my back like we were nothing? Can you stop listening to everyone who don’t know themselves?” Deep down, she’s hurt. Not knowing if her love was ever enough for him.

‘What You Want’ contains a post-relationship-based narrative and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with anymore who has ever experienced being in a challenging relationship. The likable tune possesses thudding drums, groovy bass, and guitar-laced instrumentation flavored with an electro-pop vibration. Furthermore, “What You Want” serves as a savory taste of what listeners can expect to hear on Alena Ciera’s upcoming EP, entitled, “All In My Head,” available on June 30th, 2023.

“Come and get me I’ll be standing right here.”

“‘What You Want’ is about being with someone who doesn’t know what they want. When I wrote this song, I was thinking about one of my past encounters in my past relationship and how everything came about in the process of us breaking up. In terms of that, I felt like when you’re in a relationship with someone they tend to create a fictional character of you in their head, and in reality, it just isn’t you. It is somebody who they imagine you to be either in a fairy tale or in the near future. They are not thinking about who and or how you are in the present and that’s how I came to the conclusion of writing ‘What You Want.’ By realizing some people really don’t know how to accept others for themselves in the present rather than having a fantasy of how or what they could to them, in the near future.” – Alena Ciera explained

Alena Ciera has collaborated and played for David Byrne’s American Utopia, Yolanda Adams, Cee Lo Green, and Beladona. She has performed at The St. James Theater on Broadway, Birdland, Snally Gaster Festival, The National Stadium, the Eagle Arena, the Capitol Jazz Cruise, and many more.
