This poignant lament explores the turbulent history of a lost love.

It’s an honest look at codependence, with a gorgeous harmony, and that ubiquitous ultimatum: take it or leave it. This is the best I can do.

People aren’t perfect, but occasionally one person is perfect for another. That’s the question, every time: are we good for each other? This poignant lament explores the turbulent history of a lost love.

“My mind is reeling from everything
that we let go wrong
I guess we just don’t belong”— Nate Fredrick

The Americana-flavored mix of acoustic guitar, a gruff baritone vocal, and live drums leads the way for this retrospective assessment of how a good thing goes bad.

Nate Fredrick was born in Springfield, Missouri, and began to teach himself guitar at the age of 12. He is now based in Nashville. This song is featured on our Country playlist.
