Pauline’s “When You’re Out There” embodies a fresh, light vibe, creating a calming space for his listeners to contemplate the causalities and conflicting issues of life. Pauline’s lilting voice shines like fresh morning dew on a meadow- crisp, clear, and so beautiful it can bring a tear to your eye.
when you’re out there
it involves high stakes to be anywhere
The wonderful thing about music is meaning can be hidden everywhere, and lyrics may be interpreted in a plethora of ways by different individuals. Pauline’s beautifully simplistic yet highly creative lyrics in this song perfectly illustrates the ability to incite multiple meanings in the minds of his listeners. I love the above lines in the lyrics because such an observation is so apparent yet poignant. The concept of “out there” may represent a number of different things, from a fresh, new relationship to learning something different. In any situation, putting yourself out there to try something new or be involved in a pioneering situation, can be uncomfortable, or even terrifying, for some people.
That’s why I love simple little lines found in songs like this one, because sometimes the clear, simple observations of life ring the truest.
when you’re unaware
will you not take pains to be evident?
you’re my person who cares
How can you not vibe with such a sweet, caring song? The voice, the gentle guitar, and the subject matter all meld together to create a lovely little listening experience. Personally, I got a light, mellow vibe from this song; it’s the kind of song you can bop your head to and smile, adding that distinctive indie flavor to your everyday existence as you listen. While this song has that distinctly indie-pop feel, there’s still a quality- perhaps the way the collection of sounds melds together, the lightness of Pauline’s voice, or the imaginative ambiguity of the lyrics- that gives “When You’re Out There” a distinctive edge.
This is the kind of song that can accompany any facet of your life- from driving alongside the ocean in your car, windows open and the sea breeze streaming in, to lounging in your backyard bench swing, the lazy autumn air becoming crisper with each sunset. If you’d like an easy indie listen, then give Pauline’s “When You’re Out There” a go!
