After first listening to these lyrics I thought this new song from Keith Urban had to be self written.
To my surprise, Without You, was not written by Keith, but the lyrics still seem to fit his life perfectly and I’m sure that’s why he chose to record the song.
Without You is about love for a woman that’s stood by the narrator’s side. In this case Keith sings about traveling, singing, and doing all the great things that comes with his life, but he acknowledges it all means nothing without his family. It’s his wife and his now two kids.
Without You actually seems to have quite simple music in the background. At least to my amateur ear it sounds simple, relaxed and I think it fits the song well. My favorite part of the song is toward the end when Keith sings about knowing he’d probably be able to live life without his love, but that he’d just be going through the motions.
Keith Urban has been singing a lot about love over the past couple albums. Before that he came out with a very popular darker album and songs like Stupid Boy. Those had their place, but these upbeat tracks about love and all that sappy stuff seem to be doing just as well.
