‘Ya No Te Conozco’ | [Video] Demo by Phantasiis

‘Ya No Te Conozco’ | [Video] Demo by Phantasiis

Hello,

Here’s a video of a song I wrote in July. It’s in Spanish. I hope that you like it.

I was having lots of nostalgia when I was writing the lyrics, and the music felt right. There’s times where I write the music first, and the lyrics follow suit. Other times it’s the opposite.

I have a feeling that sometimes when I’m in a flow state the song writes itself. Has this happened to you?

Let me know.

Inspire and Create,

-Ernesto

Shared Dreams

Shared Dreams

Where you been?

I was longing for your return

Waiting for my turn

To share with you my dream

A dream about a place

Full of music and light

Where I had to inevitably embrace

The beauty in your eyes

When you look at me

And ask me why

I answer nothing

I have nowhere to hide

Then you ask me

Where I’ve been?

That you were longing for my return

That you were waiting for your turn

To share your dream with me.

And it was so beautiful.

Our Song and Silence

Our Song and Silence

I started to hear our song

The one that we danced

Together, as one, as a whole

With our bodies and souls

I realize that you’re not here

Not with me, not together anymore

And we’re not dancing either

Our bodies and souls are now apart

Silence is what I want

Please turn off the music and lights

I don’t want to hear our song

The one we used to dance

Together, as a whole.

Thank You (Letter) | New Single

Thank You (Letter) | New Single

This song was written as a reminder to myself. To be thankful for people that I welcome to my life. To be aware of who I let to hear my story.

It turned out to be a lesson for me.

Thank you for listening. Please let me know your thoughts in the comments or the contact form.

Mondai nai,

-Ernesto

New EP Out Now

Hello,

I’ve released a new spoken-word, 11 tracks EP in Spanish. It’s titled “Diferencial: Tuvo un Día Triste” (Differential: He had a sad day). 

Diferencial: Tuvo un Día Triste

This EP is composed of poems that I wrote, based on love and heartbreak with the point of view of someone who has a mental health condition. 

It deals with topics of anxiety, lack of emotions, the silences that couples experience at times when there’s much to say.

It explains that sensation when someone you care about tries to diagnose you unintentionally, out of curiosity. 

The music itself is minimalistic. The main focus was on the vocals, which were difficult to record but forced me to be creative with the tools I had. 

Overall, I’m satisfied with this experiment. I’m visualizing more of this, but more guitar driven. 

This EP is also available on Apple Music, YouTube, Amazon, and on most streaming services. 

Muchas Gracias,

-Ernesto

Sinister

Sinister

To the right

Seeing the rivers pass by

To the left

Contemplating my path

Sinister thoughts are in the mind

Ideas that dive into the negative

To the dissonant

The problematic

Where I can see the mind

Sinister ideas that aren’t sublime

To the left I look

And I gaze into the self

I see that I turn

Into a sinister man

An Idea

An Idea

An idea of you

Abstract

Sometimes, incomplete

I search for you, but I the end

I press “delete”

You’re a complicated riddle

Full of metaphors

And analogies

I wish for you and I

To become an anthology

I question myself too much

I ask for your whereabouts

I’m always filled with my doubts

But you’re what I need so much

When I can finally see you

All my questions

And prayers are answered

Fulfilled and complete

Now I can press “enter”

Instead of “delete”

Because when I’m next to you

I can be anything

I want to be your dream

Erasing the darkness

Would you share this idea with me?


 

Thank you for reading,

Ernesto

Mirrors (The Devil) – Lyrics

Mirrors (The Devil) – Lyrics

Mirrors

I just crossed the line
With graceful movements
I saw the evil in my eyes
In the mirror monuments

Fear screamed from the mirror
A fear I couldn’t believe
A fear so mysterious
A fear with no reason to be

Walking forward, with no direction
I immerse myself into dimensions
Looking for answers, asking the questions
Nobody is there

I have nobodies’ attention

The corner of the room
With white walls that turn black
That is the place where the fears start to bloom
Once they are in, there is no turning back

Blinded with blasts of paranoia
Penetrating my eyes
It gives me feels of euphoria
A feeling that I have to hide

Forcing the throat
To scream away the fears
Until the bleeding comes
Until the ears cannot resist

Terrorizing howls enter through my mind
Then they turn into images of horror
And through my eyes pass by
Black, gray, and red are the colors

That kill the soul inside

Everything started that morning
While staring at the mirror
I found another face

And it wasn’t me
It was the devil.


Please Dance With Me

Please Dance With Me

Music is no the same without you

It truly isn’t

It feels meaningless

It feels empty

Please, listen to these songs

 

The ones I write about you

Where I tell you how much I miss you

With metaphors and symbols

Music is not enough when you aren’t here

 

When we share songs together

It’s as if I just discovered them again

The songs have meaning

And a purpose

 

I like to listen to your music

And I love when you listen to my songs

I love to hear your notes

Like melodies that set me free

 

Now, I beg you

If you could please dance with me.

 

Silent Me (Get Out) – Lyrics

Silent Me (Get Out) – Lyrics

Silent Me (Get Out)

Our silences

Nothing damaged us more than our silences

Our fears of saying what we needed, what we wanted

 

The words could not form in our throats

We couldn’t say anything

I did not say anything

 

Our unspoken problems

Our insecurities

Our desires

Our pains

 

I closed the door, you had the key

I didn’t ask for help, I didn’t wanted to be free

A self-imposed punishment

 

I needed to suffer

But this was also a choice

 

It makes me wonder, what did you choose?

And I hope that you chose to be happy

And free

 

Get out of this room

Do not be like me.


Forever After (Anxiety) – Lyrics

Forever After (Anxiety) – Lyrics

Forever After (Anxiety)

Feelings

That I don’t want

That I don’t need

Why can’t I just make them disappear?

 

It makes me sad

I can’t control it

It’s in my mind

I can’t avoid it

 

This obsession

that I have

with my thoughts

I cannot stop

 

Why I can’t just shut my mind?

Why I can’t just close my eyes?

 

But I can’t

I am too anxious

Overwhelmed

So pretentious

 

It appears

that this will be

forever after

inside of me

 

I am worried

It’s hard to breathe

I am nervous

It’s hard to think

 

Anxiety follows me

You are not in here

I don’t want this

I don’t need this

 

This obsession

that I have

with my thoughts

I cannot stop

 

Why I can’t just shut my mind?

Why I can’t just close my eyes?

But I can’t

I am too anxious

Overwhelmed

So pretentious

 

It appears

that this will be

forever after

inside of me

 

Forever after

Inside of me

I just want this

To disappear
