I’m a sucker for a good romantic song and since Emily King’s new album dropped, I can’t seem to stop listening to “2nd Guess”.
Oh why, why not take chances?
Oh why can’t we let these hearts go?
This could be a moment, something worth holding onto
Oh why miss a connection?
Oh why don’t we listen when we both know
This is something special, and I don’t wanna think it through
No second-guessing you
Where has Emily King been hiding all my life? I know that it sounds crazy to think that I’ve avoided her music all this time and yet, I just listened to her for the first time on Friday.
She is the embodiment of magic.
Her vocals feel heavy with emotion and though the entire album spoke volumes to me, “2nd Guess” gave me the butterflies in my stomach. It’s tender and pure in the way that a first date is. It holds your hand while it asks you to take a risk and it whispers reassurance in your ear when you need it the most.
I’ll be the one to love you when there’s no one else around
Be the one to hold you when the others let you down
I know it sounds crazy, I know we just met
Life is always sweeter when there’s no regrets
The scariest parts of a relationship to me are the first few moments. The scary lies in the unknown, in the taking a leap and in the excitement of it all. This song takes the scariest parts and it reminds you of how rewarding it could end up being.
Emily King created a masterpiece with Scenery and I urge you to listen to the rest of the album because it can only make your week better.
