…just a shadow, ZOYA ZAFAR Wordz
by Walter Price
What inspires a singer-songwriter to record an emotional track in the dead-of-night? We could all assume something personal had to be said and shared. Like the recent sparse single “Wordz” from Orlando-based storyteller Zoya Zafar.
Zafar poetically sings, “Was I just another, passerby on the street?/ Longing for connection/ I should’ve known would fleet…” What you ultimately translate just these lyrics as, could be an everchanging bottomless task. But all well-written earnest songs find themselves landing differently with all who experience them, after all. Therewithin is the magic of “Wordz”. Picturesque, intimate, and palpable.
You can stream the dreamy “Wordz”, here at the GTC.

Was I just a shadow?
Following you in the dark
We made plans you ended
After sipping tea in the park…
