about

'She' is the debut EP from Kia. This project takes the listener on a story-themed musical journey. It is as daring as it is sensual. 'She' embodies all that makes a female a woman; the struggles and challenges as well as the victories. The journey of "She" collectivizes the growth and development needed to reach our power as women. Enjoy!

Track Name: Reasons
Some people do it for the glitz and the glamour
Some people wanna have them hits and them fans
Though I only know about this moment

They say that you gotta get it how you live, I know
Gotta make good out the lemons, for sure

But I’ll be damned if I gotta sell my soul

Cause I been praying for better days
And real ones that take the pain away
Hard times can drive you crazy
And I’m just here to feel the waves

And then kiss the sand goodbye
As they stand the test of time

And I say this so naturally
I only know what’s best for me cause life’s tested me

Dear future what will you make of me?
I see pieces of visions and fragments of dreams

I just wanna live and get through my pains
that tomorrow may bring
That today will not change
Track Name: For You
There’s nothing but peace you feel close to me when you hit my line
And somehow I can sleep though you’re away from me cause you know you’re mine
And though you’re overseas, you’re close to me here in my heart
And here I patiently wait to hold you again

I could tell you what I want but I couldn’t tell you what I won’t do for you, for you
Mm you got everything I want, I hate to tell you that I need you but I do, but I do

I imagine you close to me, how it’s supposed to be - it’s crazy cause everything I see is you
And I don’t wanna live a lie so why try to live my life without you, without you

I guess I gotta breathe, nah bump dat I know what I got, ain’t gotta run it back moving on now
Distance don’t disturb me, I don’t need worries, I just feel truth

In fact I dream of you and see the view all up in my head
and here I patiently wait to hold you again

I could tell you what I want but I couldn’t tell you what I won’t do for you, for you
Mm you got everything I want, I hate to tell you that I need you but I do, but I do

I imagine you close to me, how it’s supposed to be - it’s crazy cause everything I see is you
And I don’t wanna live a lie so why try to live my life without you, without you

I would run for miles and wait along while just to be with you forever
Your face in my mind I’ll love you long time baby it’s now or never

I’ll meet you at the peak and I won’t miss a beat, I’ll see you there
The distance ain’t nothing cause we got something that lasts like never, forever and ever

I could tell you what I want but I I can’t tell you what I won’t do for you, for you
Mm you got everything I want (you got everything I want), I hate to tell you that I need you but I do, but I do (but I do)

I imagine you close to me, how it’s supposed to be, it’s crazy cause everything I see is you
And I don’t wanna live a lie so why try to live my life without you, without you

Track Name: Dangerous
It was just a dream but then I woke up when I felt your touch
and you were lying next to me and I couldn't believe
there was something in me that burned for you

Over and over and over again
I visualized something more than a friend in you
I don’t wanna sit here and play pretend
I wanna be yours til the very end, I know, I know that

I'm so in love with you I don't know what to do
Yes it's the truth and it's dangerous to give someone your trust
And I used to be so blue but you changed my mood
And I feel so new though it's dangerous to fall in love with someone like

I hide this secret in a deep dark corner of my heart
And I’d feel nothing but horror
if you’d ever leave my mind
please don’t leave my mind

Cause over and over and over again
I visualized something more than a friend in you, than a friend in you
I don’t wanna sit here and play pretend
I wanna be yours til the very end, I know, I know, know that

I'm so in love with you I don't know what to do
Yes it's the truth and it's dangerous to give someone your trust
And I used to be so blue but you changed my mood
And I feel so new though it's dangerous to fall in love
With someone like you

My emotions ride on high
Baby don't wanna say goodbye
No I'd rather fly in love
Please don't you warn me of my fears
and don't wash away my tears
I only wanna be in love, in love in love because

I'm so in love with you I don't know what to do
Yeah it's the truth and it's dangerous to give someone your trust baby

And baby I used to be so blue but you changed my mood
And I feel so new but it's dangerous to fall in love
With someone like you

I'm so in love with you I don't know what to do yes
but it's dangerous to give someone your trust baby

And baby I'm so in love with you I don't know what to do yes
but it's dangerous to give someone your to give someone your trust

And I used to be so… but you changed my… and I feel so
but it's dangerous to fall in love
Track Name: Fog
I said I loved you, you couldn’t stay
Wanted to love you anyway oh no no

And I could see that I was blinded
How could we be reminded of what time was to us
when I can’t even see what lies ahead?

Cause I’m caught in the silence waiting for your sound
There’s nothing but darkness and I can’t take another round

I don’t wanna fuss, I just wish you missed me
No I don’t wanna touch and you’re not gon’ convince me no

Empty prayers spoken layers, maybe I should think
For once or twice or live another life mm
If you’re coming I’ll wait here
Keep on running I’ll keep shedding tears
but who cares?

Clouded by the clouds on the ground

Cause I’m caught in the silent waiting for a sound
There’s nothing but darkness and I can’t take another round of this here

I don’t wanna fuss, I just wish you missed me
No I don’t wanna touch and you’re not gon’ convince me because
Right now you’re making me nervous don’t try to say you deserve me

We been through it all, but couldn’t get through the fog
No I don’t wanna fuss

There ain’t nothing but darkness (darkness)
and I can’t take no more no other sound than this here
Track Name: Really Love You
Empty and still full
I can’t tell you how this here feels good
but I don’t even want it to end
Can this be the interlude to our story baby?

I’m drownin, screamin loud
but I could tell you what love is all about
and I don’t even know where to start,
forgive me I’m sorry if you’re in a hurry

I’m suffering with myself all because of someone else
How in the hell can I make sense of this?

Something happens when the lover’s lie
and them tables turn on you
That’s what happens when the feelings die
and you only got you

And then what happens is
you wanna cry feelin’ like a fool
But then you gotta give in to try
and really love you

I tried to ask all my friends
how do they get to the ‘happy ever end’
But why should when I don’t listen?
"It’s so easy, girl stop being in a hurry to love"

It’s loud in here in these crowds
where I can hide myself and what I’m all about
All in the name of him
I’d risk it all just to watch my sky fall

I’m suffering with myself all because of someone else
How in the hell can I make sense of this?

Something happens when the lover’s lie
and them tables turn on you
That’s what happens when the feelings die
and you only got you

And then what happens is
you wanna cry feelin’ like a fool
But then you gotta give in to try
and really love you

Cause you deserve an overflow of love in your world
but if you keep looking at the glass half full
Then you’ll never be the one that could have everything
and every real thing she wants

You don’t need nobody to complete you
just who sees you as you are

And don’t let nobody play them games
that you would never wanna play
Cause that’s your heart, just recognize

Something happens when the lover’s lie
and them tables turn on you
That’s what happens when the feelings die
and you only got you

And then what happens is
you wanna cry feelin’ like a fool
But then you gotta give in to try
and really love you

Can’t love nobody if you don’t love you
Can’t be somebody if you don’t love you
Don’t need nobody if you love you
Won’t be no hobby if you love you
