about

Written during the summer lockdown of 2020, "Didn't I" is a cynical, note-to-self with a simple message--don't catch feelings. The moody track is a hard-hitting lead single for Garth.'s, upcoming 2021 EP. Boasting original samples of natural soundscapes against aggressive, yet ethereal vocal production, "Didn't I" knocks HARD. The music video, slated for release on Nov 20th via Afropunk, brings the song's energy to life with striking visual themes of reflection in the vastness of nature.

lyrics

Didn’t I tell you about falling love?
Didn’t I tell you about falling love?
Baby, didn’t I tell you about falling love?
Didn’t I tell you about falling love? Giving up trust?
Now, didn’t I tell you about falling love?
When you’re feeling this lonely better get tough till it lets up
I don’t catch feelings, I don’t show up
We don’t have memories I can outrun
Didn’t I tell you about falling in love?

I know you want to give it time and space
Ten seconds just to hit rewind on fate
No looking back so cut the double take
Don’t watch me while I’m stepping out of frame

Heaven knows I’ve been barely scraping by
Why am I checking for you?
If you don’t mind, just leave me with “goodbye”
I’m not breaking for ya

I can’t keep falling for emotion
I don’t need anything but focus

Didn’t I tell you about falling love?
Didn’t I tell you about falling love?
Baby, didn’t I tell you about falling love?
Didn’t I tell you about falling love? Giving up trust?
Now, didn’t I tell you about falling love?
When you’re feeling this lonely better get tough till it lets up
I don’t catch feelings, I don’t show up
We don’t have memories I can outrun
Didn’t I tell you about falling in love?

Can’t relate by the second date
No dramatics, bringing flowers by the lake
Maybe it’s not your vibe (cool...)
Keeping me up all night
Catch me on demon time
Leave me on “read?” That’s fine.
It was cool, chasing after you
Reminiscing, then you ghost and act a fool
Guess it ain’t meant to be (be)
Spending that time on me (me)
Maybe I’ll keep it clean (clean)
Or, maybe I’ll make a scene

Heaven knows I’ve been barely scraping by
Why am I checking for you?
If you don’t mind, just leave me with “goodbye”
I’m not breaking for ya

I can’t keep falling for emotion
I don’t need anything but focus

Didn’t I tell you about falling love?
Didn’t I tell you about falling love?
Baby, didn’t I tell you about falling love?
Didn’t I tell you about falling love? Giving up trust?
Now, didn’t I tell you about falling love?
When you’re feeling this lonely better get tough till it lets up
I don’t catch feelings, I don’t show up
We don’t have memories I can outrun
Didn’t I tell you about falling in love?
