Shelby Lynne: Telephone
Sometimes it can be hard to end a relationship. You know it’s over, but you can’t quite take the action that would make it official, as if doing so would constitute a personal failure. At such a time, you might be tempted to call your former other at a time when you are fairly sure they won’t pick up. Then, you “tried”, and it’s not your fault. But be careful. Shelby Lynne tells what happens if they pick up anyway, and its not pretty. It is a beautifully rendered song though. Lynne’s seemingly calm delivery has just enough cracks to make this emotionally powerful.
