Malaysian songstress Yuna and Canadian DJ and Producer Ekali, drops a emotive electric soul ballad that takes listeners on a mesmerizing journey.
The song paints an emotionally distant relationship in which the lyric’s recipient has their attentions directed elsewhere – another partner or perhaps just a distracted sense of curiosity over the possibility of a different love.
“If you’re cold inside, I’ll start a fire, but you just let it die,” sings Yuna. “If you’re lost inside I’ll be your guide, the moonlight in your sky.”
Yuna’s lyrics show a grounded and compassed strength that is admirable in her understanding that relationships do not imply an ownership of one person over another.
“If your body needs the space for breathing / You know I can’t stop you from leaving,” she sings. “Every time you feel low, I can always be your hero / But you only think for yourself, you lookout for somebody else.”
