I probably first encountered this song as a 10-year-old at the Beach Ottumwa, but it didn’t completely resonate with me until I was about 16 and in a perpetual argument.
I love the juxtaposition of the verses and the chorus, the “You could be my someone,
you could be my scene” vs “Can you take it all away … this pain you gave to me”
I also really love this music video, because it’s not the story you expect. It’s so well-told, though, and is actually the inspiration behind this song. The lead singer’s son plays himself in the music video too. Feels.
Also, acoustic session, because we can 🙂
