Danielle Bradbery - Potential.jpg

 

" That I'm not in love with you
I'm not in love with you
I'm in love with your potential "

 

今天要推薦大家的歌曲來自美國年紀輕輕的鄉村流行歌手Danielle Bradbery,她在2013年拿下《The Voice》第四屆的冠軍,並在同年發行個人首張專輯,第二張專輯《I Don't Believe We've Met》即將在2017年12月初問世,這首〈Potential〉便是收錄在新專輯當中。

 

這首歌的歌詞非常簡單,但其實意境是很淒涼的,主角愛的人其實不是現在的對方,而是她未來期望中完美的對方,也許是現實與夢想落差太大,使她漸漸無法撐下去了。無論她怎麼等,都等不到對方有所成長,這種感情真是不談也罷。

 

推薦給大家聽聽,順便認識這位年輕女歌手的作品,我覺得〈Hello Summer〉、〈The Heart of Dixie〉都很不錯,你都可以從這兩首歌看到不一樣的Danielle喔~
