“You Blink, I Break has been a song I have always wanted to write. I just didn’t have the words to describe my feelings for the longest time, so when the inspiration hit, I finally felt I could trust myself enough to pour my heart into this song. So much went into the making of You Blink, I Break and to see it take its first steps into the world makes me feel really proud.”
