A Folk-Singer, Breaking Out of a Toxic Relationship
The lyrics of "Colder In Your Heart" sound like they could have been written by Bob Dylan in the late 60's... a creative, word-heavy sneer directed at some one-time lover, partner, or friend, whom the singer has decided is completely devoid of warmth, empathy, and genuine compassion. Thus, the singer fires off a triumphant round of verbal bullets at the cold-hearted listener, and makes plans to "escape the coldness in [her] heart," promising her that he will soon be happy and beyond her withering influence. The style of the song has a more bouncy, Americana vibe to it than was typical of this era of Dylan-- even featuring a female backup singer-- and ElectricButterKnife's singer has a soft and pleasant voice that makes the piece easily digestible.
"Colder in Your Heart" would be an excellent theme song for Getting over a shitty breakup
