This is one of the songs I found on Spotify where, after checking out some more songs by the artist, I think there's a lot of potential. I really like this song and some of her other stuff is entertaining but hasn't quite put it all together yet. Either I like the melody and not the lyrics, or the lyrics and not the melody. For example, "Bare Feet" is fun (especially the music video , but the lyrics seem kind of silly. For example, this song is notable for me because it includes what I consider both excellent and terrible lyrics. Her opening verse is great:
I've never given anyone a chance at my heart
Momma always said it was a treasure to guard
And the man whose worthy of given it to will
Stick around long enough to prove it to you
And "I want his hands everywhere his eyes have been" is a legitimately great line. But the song also includes the lines: "And he says, it don't matter how long he has to wait / He'll sleep outside my bedroom door in the pouring rain" and I just can't figure it out... she has an external door to her bedroom? Does she live in a motel, or a one-room cabin?
The video for this song is absolutely gorgeous (shot in Zion National Park and Big Sur, California), and it's a continuation of the story from her previously music video for "The Difference (Goshdamn) ," where she's being pursued by some kind of Paul Walker lookalike. Overall, I really love this song in particular and I think Caroline Jones is a talented musician who just needs something to click into place to take it to the next level. And apparently I'm not the only one who thinks that because, after a number of concerts together where she was an opening act or guest appearance alongside the Zac Brown Band, she officially joined their group in 2022.
