joey+rory        This song tells the tales of two different people who in some sense have lost their spouse. The first verse tell the story of a woman who lost her husband in a plane crash that is heavily insinuated to be 9/11. The second verse talks about an elderly man whose has Alzheimer’s and cannot remember him. In the chorus t states that the two of them are past mourning and all they want is a chance to say goodbye.

       The main singer, Joey, does an amazing job at singing this song and her partner, Rory, does a great background vocal on the chorus. And unlike a lot of recent songs in country music, and any genre for that matter, it is very understated both musically and vocally. This allows it to sound very sincere and honest instead of melodramatic and theatrical.
