Irish/French multi-talented artist Cian Ducrot has just released his new single “Not usually like this”. A powerful emotional song inspired by his own life experiences about a girl he fell in love with at 14 who broke his heart.
Speaking about the track, the 23-year-old explains: “’Not Usually Like This’ was the first time that I really dug into my past and was able to go to a place and write a song about something that I previously wouldn’t have been able to put into words. It was both difficult and easy, but I learned a lot from writing this song”.
Directed by Harry Law, the music video fits the tone of song perfectly.
“Not usually like this” is Cian’s first release after “Started in college (mixtape)” came out last summer.
Born in Ireland and later based himself between London and Los Angeles, the rising star built a huge fanbase thanks his videos on YouTube and TikTok.
This guy is definitely one to watch!

Lyrics:

We used to be like the lovers, the ones that you’d see in a movie
I felt like I was your Noah and I thought that you were my Allie
But we weren’t out of a book
And I never wanted to hide it
But I had my heart set on you
When I guess you still hadn’t decided

But I was so fucked up when I saw the way you looked at him
Did you fall out of love? Did he give you something I couldn’t give?

No, I’m not usually like this
And I don’t think I’m ready for change
You know I could usually fight this
And sometimes I’m fine with the pain
And I know it’s hard sometimes
But I wish you could stay for a moment
And you know I could usually fight this
No, I’m not usually like this

I thought I got over this feeling
‘Cause it’s been six years now
But I saw you last week on the street and
I caught myself turning around
Then I hoped that by now I’d forget
After parties when we’d stumble home
We’d text while we sneak past our parents
Drunk from bottles we don’t even own

But I was so fucked up when I saw the way you looked at him
Did you fall out of love? Did he give you something I couldn’t give?

And I’m not usually like this
And I don’t think I’m ready for change
You know I could usually fight this
And sometimes I’m fine with the pain
And I know it’s hard sometimes
But I wish you could stay for a moment
You know I could usually fight this
No, I’m not usually like this

Why do I fall when you’re all I’ve loved?
And how do I know when you fell out of love?
No, why do I fall when you’re all I’ve loved?
So when did you fall out of love?
But when did you fall out of love?

But I was so fucked up when I saw the way you looked at him
Did you fall out of love? Did he give you something I couldn’t give?

No, I’m not usually like this
And I don’t think I’m ready for change
You know I could usually fight this
And sometimes I’m fine with the pain
And I know it’s hard sometimes
But I wish you could stay for a moment
You know I could usually fight this
No I’m not usually like this
And I’m not usually like this
And I don’t think I’m ready for change (Oh)
You know I could usually fight this (I’m not usually like this)
And sometimes I’m fine with the pain (Woah)
And I know it’s hard sometimes (I’m not usually like this)
But I wish you could stay for a moment (Oh)
You know I could usually fight this (I’m not usually like this)
No, I’m not usually like this (Not usually like this)
