Sometimes we need a break, a break from work, school, the internet or even a relationship. Our bonds can strengthen when we are deprived and we can look at our lives in a new light. Doug Tuttle keeps this song so simple for one reason, because life is simple. We over complicate things ourselves and sometimes the only way to reevaluate is to take a step back. This song consists of a pre-chorus and a chorus highlighting the main theme over and over again, but you don’t seem to mind as there is a lot going on behind the lyrics.
A huge acoustic guitar starts the song off and provides a nice strumming pattern with lots of room for the bass to sit behind the drum kit. A clarinet soars overtop of the lyrics given them an enlightening feel. The song is about taking time away from what you love to find out more about it – to search your feelings. After this point is made at the end of the chorus, a gritty guitar solo spews out of the guitar giving you the time to reflect before diving back into the pre-chorus.
Take some time, let the song guide you on a journey, and you just might find some insight.
