Lara’s very first composition (2017). She originally entirely arranged this song on a small Android app (Soundcamp) and it has been redone from scratch in 2019.
The synthetic string instruments were replaced by real ones, played by Catherine Jacob and Barbara Rialland, Olivier’s friends, and inspired by The Verve’s Bittersweet Symphony, among others.
The introductory melody, which is the starting point of the song, was born long before the song’s composition and played in Lara’s head since her teenage years.
[Verse] (Dsus2) Nothing to say (Bm7 C G) or (D/B D/C D/B) I've got no more to say Nothing to say, please Let me run away Time's running out I just woke up today All these days passing by And my mind stuck in here And yet [Chorus] Here I am, here I am Here I am Wading through this crazy emptiness Here I am When you grow up When you grow up one day Then remember Just do what I say 'Cause time's running out There's not much time left for you To do all the things that you're expected to do And yet Here I am, here I am Here I am, wading through this crazy emptiness Here I am
