“Now I have to ask you to sing for me
And I have to show you the worlds to see
You're standing right in front of me and slipping away.”
But again, the spin of the song is overall pretty positive. Campbell goes through her childhood, and all the special memories she had with her father, and everything her taught her. Listeners get insight into the famous Glen Campbell, and how he was just a normal father, and an amazing one at that, by the way Campbell sings about him. Although it's impossible to accept watching someone you love die, it seems that this is Campbell's way for her to cope, for her to be strong for her father and appreciate the full life he had and everything he did for her. Death and sickness are had things to deal with, but Campbell manages to transfer that sadness into a song that is relatable, honest, and beautiful.
Campbell made a risky choice, but a bold and honorable one. She chose a song about her father as her debut single, a song that doesn't mention anything a typical country song would, and doesn't sound like anything on the radio right now. But it's a song full of grief, heartbreak and nostalgia. It's a country song. A true country song. No matter how well this does on the charts, this is still one of the most powerful, and one of the best singles to be released by a woman this year.
