The gentle guitar strings in the intro softly grab your attention, and once Engel’s vocals enter, his passionate, rich voice casts a spell on you, telling the story with a melancholic, touching tone. Lyrically, there’s no mercy for your heart, as it squeezes the part that once got hurt by a toxic, suffocating relationship, and even if you haven’t experienced such a thing -lucky you- the atmosphere will lure you to feel like you have.

It begins with gentle guitar riffs, and then the instruments join in one by one, bringing depth and authenticity. Such as the moving violin and cello playing, along with the circling guitars, which helped to convey the intimacy of the composition.
