"Graveyard" is one of the most interesting songs on the record. This track is more alternative/electro-rock than country, and is an oddball compared to the rest of the music on the record. Despite that fact, this song is incredible. It has a catchy country-influenced vibe, but rocky quality that is reminiscent old music by Avril Lavigne. The lyrics represent a different side of a "young heart," as evident by the chorus:
"You make go insane, but you're not the one to blame
Under my skin, I feel it rushing in, I'm giving in
I’ll be your fallen star, light me up here in the dark
Where the hearts are, its a graveyard."
The lyrics in this song are deep and powerful, and the haunted production reflects the dark and deep lyrics.
Young Heart ends with "Lock & Key," the best song on the album. This track speaks of true love. The chorus is full of beautiful imagery, like "We fit perfectly/Like a lock and key" and "And our songs the sweetest melody/And we’ll live this love on repeat." Arguably the best pure love song since Taylor Swift's "Love Story," this song describes easy, pure, beautiful love with no complications. It is a fantasy, a unrealistic expectation, but when listening to the song, you get hope, that maybe you will one day find love as beautiful as this song makes it out to be.
Casey Weston takes listeners on an adventure, through happiness and summers, painful, hurtful times, and finally to find true love. Weston finds her sound with this record, and it outshines everything she has ever done before. Beautifully crafted and sung, this album is a masterpiece.
