"Fade Away" is About Depression and Self-deprecating Thoughts
(Los Angeles, CA)
Vickie wrote "Fade Away" because she genuinely thought she was losing her mind and needed help. Vickie had lost two friends in the last two years, and she became overwhelmed with everyday life. There were days when she didn't eat or get out of bed. Vickie felt like she was slowly dying inside, and she felt like she had no purpose in life. So, she wrote "Fade Away" on the days she felt like getting up.
Writing this song was a challenge, but it helped her work through her depression. Vickie still has good and bad days, but she can now tell those self-deprecating thoughts to shut up.
"We sometimes suffer quietly and never reach out for help until it's too late." - Vickie Davies, "Fade Away"
"Fade Away" was recorded in Vickie Davies' home studio. Initially, the song's bridge was supposed to pick up and switch to grunge rock, but Vickie felt the song sounded better and more cohesive if the song stayed somber and mellow.
