"I know, I know; I've been there, too."

That's the message of this song - the first single from my upcoming album CONNECTIONS. The "I Know I Know" video lovingly displays this message with a beautiful collage of dozens of courageous people who shared their most vulnerable stories for the project.

We shared the struggles we've faced, the challenges we're currently facing, the most vulnerable experiences of our lives in order to say to those who are facing similar challenges "You are not alone" - the most powerful sentence to hear when you're in the midst of struggle. I know, because I've been there, too.

Thank you to all of the beautiful and brave souls who contributed to this project. And to those of you who'd like to share your story along with us, we'd love to hear it. Please come join us as part of our ongoing, living project to encourage and inspire at iknowiknow.me.


Come sit right here
Tell me everything
Start from the beginning
Let it all pour out
I will catch your story in my wings
This is the beginning
Of all that we cry out for

You seeing me seeing you
We are found

I know, I know, I know, I know
You live all alone in a cold and dark room
I know, I know, I know, I know
You don’t see a way out
You’re stuck there for good
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know how it feels
I’ve lived there too

Shadows only catch us from behind
Let’s turn and face them
Switch on the light
Never mind the cracks you try and hide
I want to see them
They’re what make you shine

The glow from within
Scatters light through the night

I know, I know, I know, I know
You go through the motions
But still you can’t move
I know, I know, I know, I know
You can see a window
But you can’t break through
I know, I know, I know, I know
I’ve been there too

Yeah me too
And it means that you’re not alone
And the secrets have all been told
And I see you
You’re beautiful
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

I know how it feels
I’ve been there too
