I think it’s fair to say that almost everyone misses Lauryn’s heart-wrenchingly beautiful voice and lyrics–even Kanye West called her out on Graduation. This song is the epitome of this to me, and also of the magic and earnestness that she brings to her work. Lauryn’s heart is part of her music, and this song illuminates that link so clearly. It’s also an incredibly honest and vulnerable piece which is one of her trademarks as well.

I wish I had more to say about this song, but I think that it resonates for me because of how humbly and clearly she opens herself to what is coming to her and feel blessed by it. That alone is not a simple thing to just toss against some notes and hope it hits.

For Laruyn’s lyrics, charisma, and depth, she will always be considered one of the best musical artists. This song is easily the best song, not only of her impressive collection, but in the world.

Have a listen!
