Francis realizes her failed relationship started well but has now turned sour. She mentions crying her eyes out when the relationship was over.
Also, deep within, she wants to know why? Why did he leave her stressed out? It’s bad enough feeling lonely, but seeing him on the street is unbearable. Usually, she’s expressive. But when she sees him, she can’t utter a word.
“You were right for me, day after day, I just didn’t see. Did you know, did you know? I realize we had something. But you and I turned into nothing at all.”
Francis shines brightly on our favorite song on the EP. Her warm voice sounds wonderful and expresses the warmth of a summer vacation filled with lots of fun. No longer does Francis think about her ex? She has moved on to bigger and better thing.
“Stars in my head in someone’s bed. Don’t remember how I got here. Thousand drinks, a dozen flings. I keep on making the same mistakes. But I don’t worry, I’m feeling cute. I’m awesome in my space buns.”
Francis ends the project with a lovely ballad. During a previous interview, she told us that this was her favorite song on the EP.
“Cry Baby is my favorite. I really love to sing it and it’s like a love letter to all my fellow crybabies.”
Francis sings that it’s therapeutic to cry. Also, crying is a prerequisite for letting go of a hurtful past.
Maja Francis’ “Cry Baby (Pt. 1)” EP is an excellent project filled with heartfelt tunes, relatable lyrics, and an evergreen theme. Also, it guides listeners on a recovery path towards achieving happiness after a hurtful breakup.
