Who knew this song would touch so many people the way it touched me in writing it? I'm realizing that sometimes as artists, we don't even know where the words are coming from. It flows out so well that it's like someone else, another being, is writing for us. Maybe this was my mother speaking to me through my music helping me heal. Now, we all can heal. This song has become my strength and maybe it can do the same for you.
"Two Tears" is the first song I wrote after changing my name to IAMPVYNE. "Cry two tears in a bucket" is a phrase I had heard in one of my favorite movies "House Party" (said by icon George Clinton). My interpretation of it was always that we won't cry long enough to fill a bucket with our tears, so why even waste time trying. The pain never lasts that long . We must embrace the fact that struggle is simply apart of the human experience and only there to give us strength, to mold us into the people we have the potential to become. This song came to me at a transitional period where I had just lost my first post-college job and I was figuring out who I truly wanted to be. It came 7 years after losing Mama V and it made all too much sense. Mama was a christian woman so I grew up in the church since before birth. The number 7, in those terms, is the number of completion, perfection. That 7th year was me finally coming to terms with my loss and understanding how it could be used to help others. That's why I became "IAMPVYNE". Just felt like I should share this with you all.
