Eli Lieb is easily one of the most underrated male vocalists in the industry today. I don't understand why he isn't a household name. His voice is magical, his musical sensibilities are beyond reproach, and he makes some of the most heartfelt and emotional music that I think every single person on this planet need to know who he is. The down to earth quality of his voice makes him so approachable and then his lyrics bare his soul every time he sings. Whether it's a song about young love or a song that's been used by an insurance company, there isn't anything this man can't do.
There is so much remorse and regret built up in this song based on being weathered and beaten by a city that I think everyone knows that at some point in their life they've been exactly where he's talking about. There's nothing left for you there and you need to get away and forge a new path; one that isn't full of broken dreams and empty promises. He makes you feel every thing he sings. He breathes so much life into these lines that when they hit you, it almost takes your breath. He has created a living, breathing expression of being done and it's something that we all need to be reminded of from time to time; you may feel wrapped up in what ever is holding you back but the roads always lead out of the situation and the cities you feel you're stuck in.
