My singer-songwriter daughter released her latest song today: "Everyday."

She wrote it about her time dealing with depression.



JayBird: Everyday

Sleep on it
Sleep on it

Oohhh

Every day is different
Every day with a new feelin' or
Dealin' with shit in a new way
I'm different

Than I used to be it's all new to me
But still feeling the same way
A good way a bad day
Ain't no way to figure it out
No way to block that shit out
It's all in my head and
I know it, I know it, I know it, I’m

Not tryna fall back I'm
Not tryna go back to
No control, no control, no control

Tuesdays with blue skies
And your eyes and everything
I Could ever need I've got
Love from you hugs from you
More from you I could never leave
We’ve got no control
Fallin' back no control
And every day is different
Every day it’s

Not about you or your love
Or my mind or the time of the day
Nothing else I can say
They say it'll be okay
Just sleep on it, sleep on it
(sleep sleep sleep sleep on it)

Sleep is the devil that keeps me awake
Sleep is the reason I'm going insane
I’d stay here all day
I'm happy this way
But just not happy today

Every day is different
Every day with a new feelin' or
Dealin' with shit in a new way
I'm different

Than I used to be it's not new to me
But still feeling the same way
A bad day a good way
Ain't no way to figure it out
I gotta figure it out
It's all in my head and
I know it, I know it, I know it

Not tryna fall back I'm
Not tryna go back to
No control no control ohh no control

Days go by like Monday Tuesday
I say I will Wednesday Thursday
Friday this will be my week
Maybe I’ll get off my feet
And fly and fly and fly

Oh oh oh

Days go by like Monday Tuesday
I say I will Wednesday Thursday
Friday maybe this will be my week
Maybe I’ll get off my feet
And fly and fly and fly and fly

Oh oh oh oh it’s

Not about you or your love
Or my mind or the time of the day
Nothing else I can say
They say it'll be okay be okay
Just sleep on it

Sleep is the devil that keeps me
awake
Sleep is the reason I'm going insane
I’d stay here all day
I'm happy this way

Sleep is the devil that keeps me awake
Sleep is the reason I'm going insane
I’d stay here all day
I'm happy this way

Not tryna fall back I'm
Not tryna go back to
No control no control no control
And everyday is different.

Jemeia moved to San Diego in August where she would have more opportunities to pursue a career in music. We miss her terribly. Like the song says, I like to think the move allowed her to get off her feet and fly.
