This song has always reminded me of the slow dance songs they would play at middle school and high school dances. It has that epic ballad sound, the cliche hyperbole lyrics, and of course my favorite theme: unrequited love.
I love how the guitar sounds like the rippling tide pictured on the album cover (Cease to Begin). But my favorite is the chorus! I love how vocalist Ben Bridwell proclaims that “no one is ever gonna love you more than I do.”
This is my go-to song to listen to when the man I want to date decides he’s gonna date someone else. Like I said, unrequited love.
