"Plenty of Ways" - Lyves | Review

Lyves’ "Plenty of Ways" is a profound exploration of love, trust, and vulnerability set against an ethereal alt-pop backdrop. Through poignant lyrics and a haunting melody, the song invites listeners into a journey of introspection and emotional depth.

The opening verse immediately sets a contemplative tone, as Lyves reflects on the transformative power of love "Love, how you teach me about love / I never thought I'd land back down for anyone." This introspective theme continues as the lyrics delve into the complexities of emotional walls and the healing nature of intimacy "There's a flood / In your arms I feel like enough / I never thought these walls I'd climb / You helped me up."

The chorus echoes with a haunting honesty, capturing the essence of human struggle and resilience "And I got plenty of spaces in my head / Plenty of days I'd wish me dead / Plenty of dreams that went unspoken / I left it open." These lines convey a raw vulnerability, acknowledging the silent battles within one's mind and the unspoken dreams left hanging in the balance.

"Plenty of Ways" also touches on the theme of trust, portraying it as a delicate yet transformative force "Trust, how you teach me about trust / I never thought I'd feel this safe with anyone." The song explores the rush of emotions when trust is reciprocated, highlighting the courage it takes to let someone in fully "There's a rush / When you're close I feel I'm enough / I see the way you dive in / I see what you're capable of."

The bridge of the song takes a poignant turn, addressing the depths of commitment and companionship "And if I fall / Would you fall with me, yeah / If I drown / Would you pray I'd still be there? / I wanna be there." These lines encapsulate the yearning for mutual support and unwavering presence in times of vulnerability.

Overall, Lyves’ "Plenty of Ways" is not just a song, but a heartfelt narrative that resonates with anyone who has navigated the complexities of love, trust, and self-discovery. Its emotive lyrics and atmospheric soundscapes create a space for reflection and empathy, inviting listeners to explore their own emotions and experiences. In its profound simplicity, the song reminds us of the beauty and strength found in embracing our vulnerabilities and forging deep connections.
