Song of the day

Too Good At Goodbyes – Sam Smith

Sam Smith’s first release off his upcoming album sticks to what he does best. The emotional ballad is cleverly written and will cut right through you. This heartbreak song has a twist, with self aware lyrics that avoid soley placing blame on the other person. They portray someone hardened by past pain who keeps emotional distance and will never allow vulnerabilities to surface as a way of self preservation. Smith has never sounded better, with exceptional control and that pitch perfect tone we’ve come to expect from him.

I’m never gonna let you close to me
Even though you mean the most to me
‘Cause every time I open up, it hurts
So I’m never gonna get too close to you
Even when I mean the most to you
In case you go and leave me in the dirt

And every time you hurt me, the less that I cry
And every time you leave me, the quicker these tears dry
And every time you walk out, the less I love you
Baby, we don’t stand a chance, it’s sad but it’s true
