“Some things you can’t undo / and one of them’s you.”
Shit. Let me say that again for the people in the back..... How many times have you done something and regretted it? How long have you drug it out knowing that you just need to walk away? How long have you tortured yourself over the idea of something that would have, should have, could have been? This song just hit me in all those places where I knew there were so many things that I need to ask for a mulligan on. Her vocal performance is sublime. It's full of hurt and it's deep and it's expressing all those emotions that Taylor or Kacey wish they could evoke. It's raw and it honestly made me go.....damn. And it's all because it's so damn honest and it's something we've all felt at some point in our lives. The minimal production with the acoustic guitar and the cajon is brilliant. It takes nothing away from her voice and makes you hone in on her voice even tighter.
The lyrics are so powerful and resonate deeply. I think this young woman has an amazing career ahead of her if this is the content she's creating. When she says, "...so I can unlove you", my heart breaks because you see it in her face just how much pain this has created in her life and how much time she's wasted because she's better than that. We've all been there. We've all had a situation that we knew was just bad from the beginning and we want to take it all back. I am in awe of this song and this performance. It's a pleasure to have this come across my desk. It's a great track and it's going to mean a lot to a lot of people. She's gonna be huge and it's very cool.
