Simplicity and honesty are the two qualities that make the best country songs, and the bridge nails these two right on the head. Pearce sings,
"They say time is the only healer,
But God I hope that isn't right
Cause right now I'd die,
to not remember every little thing."
The incorporation of the saying that 'time heals all wounds,' and the almost angry stance she takes on that saying is a real, raw emotion. And as always, Pearce's vocals beautifully convey the sentiment behind this heartbreaking ballad.
"Every Little Thing" has incredible lyrics, beautiful vocals and a modern appeal. This is a special song. There is an incredible amount of music being released every day, and there is an incredible amount of great music being released every day. But it's only once in a while that an exceptional song is released, and even rarer for it to be reciieveing the amount of attention this song is. But it's well deserved. This song, and Pearce, are future hits.
