The memories, the regrets, the things we never said: it all adds up, and sometimes we need somewhere to put those emotions that never got fully felt. When Lizzy Gunn decides to ‘defend [her] broken heart’ - she means it.
We are allowed to mess up; we get to dust ourselves off and keep walking. Lizzy just happened to pick up her guitar and put this particular country-flavored catharsis to lyrics. With a melancholic and throaty vocal delivery, we hear the very pain she is excising, and immediately we understand: it’s a letting go where nothing is left buried.
And with every ending is born a fresh start, and another reason to eventually sing the blues again.
Lizzy Gunn is a singer and songwriter from Los Angeles. This song is featured on our Rainy Day playlist.
