“I don’t want to be the girl that has to fill the silence
“The quiet scares me cause it screams the truth”
She’s right on both counts.
You don’t want to be that person that fills the silence.
It does scare you.
And the quiet moments do scream the truth.
Stop scrambling to “figure out” what’s going on here in this scene. Stop. Go silent. Stay attentive.
What is actually happening will become apparent.
Not deduceable — Apparent. Clear. You’ll feel it.
The audience will too.
Real is always better than manufactured, however close the manufactured version gets.
To find the real, though, you have to shut up and let it talk to you. It’s very polite. It won’t interrupt you. You have to make room for its voice.
Other pop stars agree.
