Charlotte Cardin - Phoenix from The Phoenix Experience

Updated: Nov 29, 2023

As far back as April 2020, Phoenix has been No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart with album sales and digital song downloads the highest all week.


Written by Lubalin, Jason Brando & Charlotte Cardin, when asked what inspired her to write this song, She explained "This is a song about not being ready to love someone the right way, because you haven’t discovered how to love yourself yet. And I find that’s such a universal concept: not being able to welcome someone in your life just because your life is so fucking messy at the moment, and you’re still looking for things that you haven’t figured out yourself."



You told me you love me

I said it back, I don't mean it

I had to burn everything that I was

Just to come back like a phoenix

A phoenix


You been worried about me

A tornado inside

I've been complicated

Take a second and show me

How to burn and to rise

I could swear I'm changing


I wasn't very happy when you met me

Baby boy


You told me you love me

I said it back, I don't mean it

I had to burn everything that I was

Just to come back like a phoenix

A phoenix


I know I haven't called back

But I'm building it up slowly, baby, surely

You're the first I'ma contact

When I feel good enough

You don't have to worry


I wasn't very happy when you met me

Baby boy


You told me you love me

I said it back, I don't mean it

I had to burn everything that I was

Just to come back like a phoenix

You told me you love me

I said it back, I don't mean it

I had to burn everything that I was

Just to come back like a phoenix


I thought I meant to when I came in this relationship

But all the roses in the world would only fuel my rage

And now you're wounded from the blades, I hope you can forgive

And we can rise from the ashes just like a phoenix


I'm burning alive, first to survive

It's been complicated

Ooh


You told me you love me

I said it back, I don't mean it

I had to burn everything that I was

Just to come back like a phoenix

You told me you love me

I said it back, I don't mean it

I had to burn everything that I was

Just to come back like a phoenix


I thought I meant to when I came in this relationship

But all the roses in the world would only fuel my rage

And now you're wounded from the blades, I hope you can forgive

And we can rise from the ashes just like a phoenix, phoenix
