It’s a piano-forward pop ballad in the style of Sara Bareilles, touching on that disconnect between lovers that can freeze a good time in its tracks. The piano carries the arrangement, over a triplet feel and a heartfelt vocal performance.
The main focus of the song is Liv Gibson’s dynamic voice, and a bright facility with embellishment: the rhythm and blues, and the soul, of an impassioned lead vocal delivery. This song could be a rite of passage for any forlorn lover; walking away only gets easy the more you do it.
Liv Gibson is a singer-songwriter from Los Angeles, CA. This song is featured on our Country playlist.
