A song about working around the limitations of circumstance, and finding the inner strength to make 'lemonade from lemons' when other options are not available.

We've covered Qinn before - her refreshing take on pop ranges from synth-heavy electronic hooks to a retro-styled flavor of indie rock that showcases her impressive vocal range and raw, emotive intensity. "Lemonade" is a song about working around the limitations of circumstance, and finding the inner strength to make 'lemonade from lemons' when other options are not available.

At its core, "Lemonade" is an intensely personal song that was written from the perspective of those who have let Qinn down, mixed with a reverence for 90's alt-pop and an effort to find peace within the chaos of modern life. Qinn continues to inspire us with her stunning vocal presence, and here, her less-than-positive experience with relationships forges a pop anthem of impressive power and distinctive resilience. "Lemonade" is Qinn's third single, and only adds to her well-earned reputation as a modern pop songstress with talent and ingenuity in generous supply.

So tell me was it wonderful
To pin all of your dreams on me
I'm sorry they were too heavy
