Can someone fall in love with me please? I just need someone to softly sing “Beyond” by Leon Bridges to me while I try to fall asleep.
I first heard of Leon Bridges while watching Big Little Lies; his song “River” immediately blew me away and I couldn’t ask Siri what song was playing fast enough. I’m fully aware that by that time, I was already late to the Leon Bridges game, but I found him and I’ve appreciated his music ever since.
His voice is tender, genuine and full of soul; his songs give you a sense that they hold history and a lot of them immediately take you back to Ottis Redding and Sam Cooke (two of my favorite musicians). His new song, “Beyond” is sweet and romantic, it cradles your heart while perfectly capturing the exciting feelings of starting a new relationship.
I’m scared to death that she might be it
That the love is real, that the shoe might fit
She might just be my everything and beyond (beyond)
Space and time in the afterlife
Will she have my kids? Will she be my wife?
She might just be my everything and beyond
With all the new music I listen to on a daily basis, it becomes easy for an artist to be lost in the shuffle of it all. Not Leon Bridges though, this song has embedded itself in my heart and I can’t shake my absolute obsession with this song. In a world where mumble rappers, attempting to rap about drugs and sex, seem to be taking over the charts; Leon Bridges is an absolutely delightful discovery.
So kick off your weekend with a little romance and play “Beyond” by Leon Bridges. xx
