Today is … time for Tunes with Tuesday!
This song is a great one for anyone who has put up emotional walls around him or her. Do you shy away from entering into a romantic relationship? Do you spend time alone instead of searching out friends?
Are you creating emotional distance without even realizing it?
This song is a duet between Labrinth, a male British singer, and Emeli Sandé. Her voice adds a lovely lightness to his rich tone. The song title is, “Beneath Your Beautiful.” There are a few video versions of this song, but I like the one below the best as it is a live performance. I like watching the two artists interact with the audience and how their voices touch the people who crowd around the stage.
The song’s message is to let down your walls and let in a friend or partner. The “beautiful” in the song refers to a mask of beauty that a person carries, seeming like everything is okay even though that person is emotionally unavailable.
When the walls come down, you are emotionally vulnerable. I think that is why people put up walls, especially after they get hurt. They fear the pain of losing someone close to them and fear rejection. I understand. I am still chipping away at my own walls and listening to this song is like therapy for me. It is soothing and motivational.
I hope you enjoy the song.
