Watching a person close to you suffer from addiction is one of the most difficult things you can go through. It’s an all-encompassing feeling of powerlessness—you feel like you’re stuck and there’s nothing you can do to help. Addiction can easily take over someone’s life. All you can do is wait and hope that they’ll eventually find their way back.
The lyrics of Alexis Lynn’s new single House on Fire describe the emotions that come with being around someone you care about who’s addicted. It’s a pop powerhouse, packed with infectious beats, cascading vocals, and gorgeous well-timed harmonies.
Alexis has said that she wanted to capture the feeling of wanting to do everything in your reach to help or save a person, even when they don’t want to be helped or saved. This song is a beautiful ode to the strength of devotion.
