In March, Sara Evans released Slow Me Down, her seventh studio album. This reviewer wrote, ‘Every single beat is felt, head to toe. It’s quite a feat to balance ever-changing feelings in a song, let alone throughout an album’, and Sara ‘maintains a vocal equilibrium from song to song’.” The title track/first single was a Top 20 hit.
“Put My Heart Down” is the album’s second single (impact date September 29). The lyrics are straightforward, Sara’s vocals are strong, but the tune’s tempo doesn’t quite fit a song about the need to drop a guillotine on heartbreak. Love didn’t just grow cold and die here; it spewed a poison through her veins forcing her to give up on the man she thought was her ‘forever’.
“This kind of love Is dangerous
So pack up all your things and just leave some air to breathe
A million toxic tears fallin’ like rain ‘round here
This is the final hour
The end of our story tonight
And I don’t wanna fight …
Put my heart down, put my heart down Put my heart down, put my heart down
And walk away
Just like it was a loaded gun”
