Keith Urban is coming off a really big hit single. There hasn’t been the announcement of an accompanying album so things were kind of left in limbo for now at least, but there is another new single on the way.
Check it out.
Break On Me – Keith Urban
I’m going to call this one a song of friendship and love. I think it’s purposely left a little vague with the lyrics.
The situation is that the narrator is offering to be there for someone they care about. The other person is going through a difficult situation; what seems like a breakup or some kind of let down or difficult situation.
The narrator is there to listen and to comfort. They’re not there to judge. They know that the person has to go through the difficult situation almost like a grieving process. It’s not about providing a solution or suggestion or anything like that. It’s about simply being there and listening to the person.
It could be a boyfriend or spouse situation. But I think it could also be a family member or close friend situation. I think that’s the uniqueness of the song with the fact that it’s left open for interpretation of the relationship while applying to anyone in this situation.
We’ve had songs like this before from Keith. They’re a little darker at least in sound while still offering some hope. The song sounds like someone is offering subtle comfort to someone that is in a really challenging situation.
It’s a cool song. It’s an emotional song and Keith pulls it off well.
