As an integral part of any song, lyrics act a way for artists to divulge their thoughts with listeners, but with so many songs out there, how can you be sure to hear all of these messages?
To grasp these hidden meanings, we have asked Saphyria to showcase some of their favourite, original lyrics and are pleased to feature them as part of our Waxing Lyrical series.
Today’s Waxing Lyrical With Saphyria dives into the lyrics of their song ‘Without Him’.
WANT TO HEAR MORE? Saphyria is taking part in RISING, our brand new series of live-streamed events, which aims to support and raise money for War Child UK to assist their work during the Covid-19 crisis.
HOT VOX have raised thousands of pounds for War Child through live gigs and events over the past two years. Now we’re taking RISING online, and with the help of our immensely talented roster of artists, we hope to raise even more vital funds for this valuable cause.

Here’s a little description of the lyrics :
In March 2019, after a one and a half year relationship, I decided to break up with my ex boyfriend, so I went through a hard time… I was alone, and I couldn’t get over it, and the only way I could express myself was through music, so I started writing “Without Him”.
It was such a difficult time for me, I wanted to scream, I wanted to cry all day long, my world completely fell apart!
Turning my emotions into a melody and lyrics really helped me to move on and to recover from this breakup.
This is where I usually find my inspiration : emotions, tough times always helped me write soulful songs.
“Without Him” is a post breakup song, and I hope it will touch people’s heart, as I’ve literally put my soul in it.
Here are the lyrics :
I remember this beautiful day
Heartstrings playing in harmony
It could have been yesterday
Kindest words, a pure simplicity
You were far from this dirty past
That broke my vision of love
I realise now it’s the end
Your acts and lies destroyed our love
Losing my mind in this loud music
Waiting for something to be released
I feel like my world’s falling apart
I need to move on without him
We both knew how different we were but
Trusting each other, that’s what I thought
I was ready to give you a chance
It’s hard to say but its now the end
I need to deal with all this pain
With the fire the wind the rain the snow
What have I done wrong please tell me
I feel so lonely what can I do
How can I get out of this hell
