I don’t know much about newcomer Lexi Larsen so I went into this new song with completely fresh ears. I like doing that sometimes before reading about the artist. It lets the song take center stage without any preconceived notions or anything like that. So I’m going to take you right into the song just like I did the first time.
You Can Leave – Lexi Larsen
Powerful voice, right? She’s really got some chops especially on this acoustic version. I like listening to these live performances sometimes over the studio version. I’m sure this one is great from the studio, but Lexi really shines in this performance. It’s the kind of performance that can win over fans.
The song is about a girl that’s really getting fed up with this guy. It sounds like he’s been kind of jerking her around. He’s staying one minute and leaving the next. She’s been trying to put it together and doing what she can to fight for it, but he’s been flaky and hasn’t been able to commit. Now she’s kicking him to the curb and tell him to get out of the door.
I’m sure this song hits home for a lot of people out there; both men and women. Sometimes we get in these relationships that are complete one-way streets where the other person doesn’t really care. It’s not worth it and that’s what this song is about.
So what do you think of this newcomer, Lexi Larsen?
