Abraham’s new song “Blue Moon” has a truly ethereal sound. Imagining the image of a blue moon above, the first minute delivers a heavy ambience that had me feeling emotional from the start. When the lyrics kicked in, I understood that the music had perfectly captured the feeling of the lyrics. Diving deeper into her emotions than she has before, it’s clear something has been weighing on her mind.
“When you break down
And nothing feels the same
Yes, we all know
Everything must change”
The beat picks up when the drums and guitar start to come through. Abraham tells us exactly how she’s feeling. Something she is doing is no longer working for her. She’s stuck in an emotional rut and knows she needs to change, but questions if anything really ever changes. It seems that she’s dwelling on a person she loves, a person from her past. Things feel different for her now that she’s on her own and she longs for the feeling she once had.
“We all dance with the dead
We all long for it back”
The “dead” she refers to seems to be a past relationship. The dark imagery is certainly an indication of the emotional state she’s been in. She’s holding on to the thought of being with someone who doesn’t feel the same way anymore. It’s a heavy emotional weight she’s been carrying with hope to bring it back to life. She considers that maybe she should keep chasing them anyway, but eventually breaks down. Waiting around is not worth it anymore.
Mournfully, she belts:
“If you don’t want me now
Will you ever?”
Repeating this line again, you can tell she knows the truth, but it’s painful. Easily the most intense moment of the song, the verse slips into a guitar solo. It seems to mark a shift in her perspective. After she lets it out, it’s like a revelation for her. She admits she feels strangely different once again, she has changed and recognizes what’s holding her back. Though, she knows she will never quite be the same.
“But something deep in my soul
Always stayed the same
It’s the part of me
That belongs to you”
She may not be over it, but you can hear her beginning to let go. Some say blue moons are a time to reflect, and that’s what Abraham did here.
