It’s safe to say that most of us have been there at one point or another. We’re in the middle of a relationship that just doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, and we’re stuck trying to figure out why it’s so hard to let go. That’s exactly what Maddy Clark was grappling with when she wrote Halfway Gone.
The song explores the complexities and contradictions that arise when you are in a relationship with someone who is unwilling to commit. Its lyrics have heartfelt meaning and are thought-provoking.
You can tell that Clark is an experienced singer-her pitch remains practically perfect the entire song. And that’s not an easy feat, trust me.
But Clark isn’t just a perfectionist when it comes to pitch. She also has impeccable timing and rhythm. She knows exactly when to hold a note and when to let it go. I think that’s really amazing, and it only adds to the song’s charm.
