Brooke Eden has releases some good songs over the last year. She’s looking for that first big hit at country radio and she might have it with this new one. It’s a song that I’ve been hearing on Spotify for the last few weeks and it seems to be catching on with fans. And for good reason.
So let’s check this one and see if it’ll be a hit…
Act Like You Don’t – Brooke Eden
The song seems to be about two people that kind of know that they aren’t right for each other. They have been together. They have been apart. They seem to know that it’s better if they’re not together. Maybe they fight too much. Maybe they don’t bring out the best in each other.
Yet when they’re apart they still feel that pull for the other person. The narrator in the song is trying to be the strong one. She’s pleading with the guy to fight his feelings when he feels like he needs to be with her and see her when he’s feeling lonely. When he feels like he still loves her she needs him to act like he doesn’t.
It’s probably safe to say that she needs him to act that way because if he calls and wants to meet up she knows that she won’t be able to tell him no.
It’s a good song. The more I listen the more I like it. It’s catchy. It has a unique sound. And it’s something that many of us can relate to.
