Lane sings this lyric on the opening track of her newest self-titled EP, titled "Lightning." This lyric is not only a good lesson for everyone, but it's also something that has become more and more apparent in Lane's music. Lane dares to experiment with different sounds, and different kinds of songs. She dares to be vulnerable and she dares to be positive, and she dares to be country as much as she dares to be pop. Lane is all about spreading sunshine, but on this EP, she's also all about spreading originality.
"She Fits" is the best song on the EP, but not just because of the quality of the lyric. It's also because of the mature perspective Lane takes on an old relationship: understanding that his new relationship fits him better than she ever did. There are so many love songs out there, and it's difficult to find something to say that hasn't already been said. This song is something new, and talks about love in a way that isn't overdone. The country-pop track would be a viable option as a single, and has been getting a lot of very positive response from fans who relate.
This EP ranges from empowering songs, to songs teaching life lessons, to angry heartbreak jams. But what Lane does best on this record is the shift in her perspective on life and love. Olivia Lane tells stories of love and heartbreak from a more mature perspective than Lane has done in the past. This is a definite evolution for Lane in sound and lyrical content, and every change that she has made to her music on this record was for the better, and resulted in a very good record.
