Martina Grillo talks about the friendzone in “If I’m a mistake”

Martina Grillo launches the new single If I’m a mistake, in store digital since January 14, 2022. The piece follows a A lie, which has been on the editorial playlist for over two months New Italian indie from Amazon Music.

If I’m a mistake was born by chance a March 2021. It is a song released out of the need to say something to a specific person. The piece deals with the theme of friendzone and the pain that unrequited love – perhaps disguised as friendship – can cause. Often we try to mask the feeling we feel, in the form of friendship. You come to think that certain things you have only experienced, but it is not true because these feelings are shared.

If I’m a mistake it’s about something breaking with the hope of fixing itself. Talk about a love that only you have felt. Talk about the fact that you have touched the snow without realizing it and, remembering everything, you feel bad. Because you always have the hope that that person will come back and understand that you are not just friends as she says.

The production was handled by rebtheprod e Living room. The sounds are those of indie, with that lo-fi touch that characterizes the new sound of Martina Grillo.

If I’m wrong, text and audio

We’re just friends, you know that too
Meanwhile, I’m drowning inside the Malibu
And I never understood you
But take that dress off

Life is a carousel and I’m hanging by a thread
Two cuts and I look at myself while I smile
I fall on my face in this crap
Which I never understood

And if I’m a replacement, I swear I’m not pissed off
But I can’t wait for a miracle like Christmas
And I don’t deserve to have you here, as you don’t deserve to have me there
You tell me this little lie of ours is my fault

You know that the night does not sleep and you do not get out of the way
And that if I’m a mistake then I’ll put myself aside
Come on you remember the evenings to smoke and drink
You remind me of the snow

We’re just friends as you say
Meanwhile, time passes and I fall down
I get lost in thoughts, in memories of yesterday
But I don’t deserve to have you here

How you don’t deserve to have me there
And you say it’s my fault
This little lie of ours

You know that the night does not sleep and you do not get out of the way
And that if I’m a mistake then I’ll put myself aside
Come on you remember the evenings to smoke and drink
You remind me of the snow

Life is a carousel and I’m hanging by a thread
You cut it and look at me while I smile
I fall on my face in this crap

You know that the night does not sleep and you do not get out of the way
And that if I’m a mistake then I’ll put myself aside
Come on you remember the evenings to smoke and drink
You remind me of the snow

That reminds me of the snow
You remind me of the snow
But do you remember the snow?

That reminds me of the snow
You remind me of the snow
But do you remember the snow?
That reminds me of the snow
