Love can be frightening for sure. Where in the classic song ‘Wicked Game’ Chris Isaak is singing “No, I don’t wanna fall in love (this world is only gonna break your heart)” Mathieu Koss thought about the girl on the other side of this relationship. If he’s not willing to put it all on the line who’s gonna be the first to open up and let this romantic chapter in their lives begin. “I can’t make someone love me.”
Two lovers torn between admitting they are in love (and thus accepting the pain that potentially could follow) and staying safe by being in denial and live there lives apart from each other, safe from harm. With these lyrics accompanied by soothing beats and melancholic melodies they captured the perfect soundtrack to a bittersweet love story.
