Produced by Alan English. Four Pink Walls Lyrics. I grew up memorizing all the cracks in the wall Staring up at the ceiling watching particles fall See I prayed every day for a change to be made And I'd wait to be saved, oh no Up at night, hiding under covers found my escape Shut my eyes and let the bass buzz into my brain See I knew. I assumed there was only room for My dreams in my dreams so I'd sleep and repeat 'til the moon went home And I didn't know where it'd take me but made me so crazy in love with it. Then the universe aligned With what I had in mind Who knew there was a life Behind those four pink walls? Now I wake up to a different bedroom everyday Living up in the clouds thinking of how it all changed Used to sit and watch paint dry Amazed by the limelight I can't ever be afraid.

Four Pink Walls is the debut extended play (EP) by Canadian singer Alessia Cara.
None of the other four songs on Four Pink Walls, the Canadian singer and songwriter's debut EP, eclipses that Top Ten R&B single, but each one of them is sturdy, fusing and switching between smart pop and R&B constructions as Cara sings about growing up and falling in love. The EP fittingly closes with the title track, a melodious and triumphant piece of hip-hop soul where Cara reflects on her early success, knowing she had the potential while in a state of dazed disbelief nonetheless. Cara co-wrote everything
The four pink walls represent Cara's childhood bedroom, where she spent much of her time. I was constantly in my room, I wouldn't do much else," she told iHeartRadio. I was pretty much a loner as a child, and I always aspired to do all these amazing things with my life, and I had all these big dreams, but my dreams were way bigger than what I was doing, and they were way bigger than my life at the time. So I was so oblivious and ignorant to the life outside of my four pink walls. Then, once my dreams came true, and everything that I wanted came true, like right now,. Alessia Cara is especially proud of this track as it was the first song that she had written completely by herself. She told HM. om: "It was just me and a producer with me dictating everything so that feels like a personal accomplishment. More songs from Alessia Cara. More songs with colors in the title.
Four Pink Walls strays from those solitary songs that gave Cara her start, and that's not a good thing. Alessia Cara struck an introvert’s pose on her April debut, "Here", and found herself famous. The single’s sound perfectly matched the attitude of its lyrics: a minor-key piano loop anchored a surprisingly powerful series of verses about a miserable party experience. Here" debuted at on the Billboard/Twitter Emerging Artists Chart
Rising Canadian pop star hates parties, loves being a teen. The R&B slow-burners and bouncy pop jams on 19-year-old Canadian singer Alessia Cara’s debut EP feel more like a personal manifesto than a party playlist. On her excellent single Here, she’s an anti-social pessimist brooding over a Portishead sample; on the joyous Seventeen, she provides a savvy update on Janis Ian’s At Seventeen and Fleetwood Mac’s Landslide. Later on, Four Pink Walls takes a turn toward retro soul, successfully channeling the conversational style of Cara’s hero Amy Winehouse. Went from ‘when boredom strikes’ to ‘Ms. Star on the Rise,' Cara sings
