When I wake is the most extreme representation of the most classical side of Violetta Zironi. Combining a dynamic and lively melody, When I Wake is a story told with notes. A song that would survive on its own, played with just a shabby electric guitar, it’s seasoned with an epic cinematic orchestral arrangement, that enhances the song bringing out the harmonies that lay hidden behind this loving melancholic lullaby. The song is about the feeling of being lonely in life, sometimes, hoping to wake up and seeing things changed. But also about being ready for things to be the same, being prepared to keep going.
