Isabelle Fries’ new single, What Can I Do, reminds us that we should always be there for our loved ones, regardless of what the situation is. No one deserves to feel alone or unsupported, and by simply being there for someone we can truly help.
Even if you don’t know what to say or do, your presence is often more important than anything else. Just think about the last time you were really upset. Chances are, you just wanted somebody to be there with you. Somebody who would let you cry on their shoulder, or rant and rave until you ran out of energy. Somebody who would just sit with you in silence and let you gather your thoughts.
That’s what being there for somebody means. It’s not about fixing their problems or telling them how to live. It’s about showing compassion.
What Can I Do has a wonderfully composed arrangement that complements the lyrics well. Isabelle’s vocals aren’t overwhelming and make the lyrics the center of focus. It allows her to convey her message effectively.
