This storytelling prowess was highlighted in a recent interview where the artist discussed her process, revealing the personal experiences that shaped the track’s themes. 

Emerald M. vividly expresses her feelings in the lyrics: “I’d rather be with you like when we were sixteen, having control on our own memories/ While it lasted, it felt like a dream with …. You/ We’ve all grown up/ And life’s getting tough/ My ambitious thoughts ain’t even close enough/ Smoking cigarettes, repeating this same old routine/ And I’m On my own now in this depressing town where there’s nothing to talk about/ Like I used to do with.. You.”

“Same Old Routine” resonates with anyone who has ever felt the weight of growing up, the struggle to maintain dreams in the face of reality. Emerald’s voice, imbued with both hope and desperation, becomes the listener’s companion in this journey through memory and desire. 

Her music promises more than just entertainment; it’s a window into the soul. Emerald M.’s ability to weave personal anecdotes into universal themes sets her apart as a truly remarkable artist in today’s scene.
