[Queres é (a) Letra!] Jenny Kern – Now We Know

Quem não adora saber sempre novidades da nossa querida Jenny Kern? “Now We Know” é o seu mais recente single e, segundo a artista, é também a sua canção mais honesta ate agora. 

“Now We Know” is my most honest song to date. This song was different for me. My process is usually finding a melody and then the words follow but with this song I wrote the lyrics first. It’s literal. Every line is literal. As you read the words, there’s nothing poetic there. It’s about self-realization, admitting to mistakes and accepting the end of a relationship.


I was working creatively with someone and we developed a very close relationship. One that was founded on understanding and support. I was dealing with a lot of depression, health issues and change, which lead to mistakes that I’m not proud of.


I wrote this song shortly after we parted ways. I was feeling a lot of guilt and shame about what happened and I was trying to understand it. At first I was in denial about the whole thing but eventually I was able to come to terms with my mistake. That said, I was still very much struggling with the fact that we would never be able to make it right Even when I tried to make it right they didn’t want anything to do with me. So I had to walk away. Learning to accept that something is broken and dealing with the fallout is incredibly powerful. The last line of the chorus “Now We Know” is meant to represent a sense of understanding and acceptance.


Ultimately, we’re human, we’re flawed and it’s okay. We’ve all got things to work on, we’ve all got problems and we’ve all experienced a broken heart. It’s easier to talk about it and be vulnerable than to keep it in and pretend like you’re doing well because that does no one any good. The first step is acceptance and you grow from there.

Se ainda não ouviram “Now We Know”, assim que ouvirem vão perceber, não só pela melodia como pela voz de Jenny Kern que estamos perante uma canção que nos toca e nos fala ao coração. Uma das coisas que mais gosto na artista é precisamente a sua honestidade e a forma como as suas canções não são apenas mais uma, mas antes uma nova história, uma nova partilha que tem tanto de especial.

It broke my heart to hear the words

Cut right through wish I misheard

And I bet it tasted sweet

Coming out so easily


Don’t come around again

Is what you said

I know you didn’t stutter

Was it meant to be this way

Was I ever meant to stay

So the story goes

Now we know

Now we know


It was an awful thing to do

Oh I know you played the fool

When I danced around the lies

It’s something that you can’t disguise


Don’t come around again

Is what you said

I know you didn’t stutter

Was it meant to be this way

Was I ever meant to stay

So the story goes

Now we know

Now we know


Don’t come around again

Is what you said

I know you didn’t stutter

Was it meant to be this way

Was I ever meant to stay

So the story goes

Now we know

Now we know
