Lyrics including “Be careful what you want now / It ain’t the weight of the world,” show just how fast things can change. Musically, the track features layered guitars, warm vocals and stunning harmonies. The song is a lush mix of Americana, folk, rock and pop for a heartfelt and sonically pleasing listen.
