I’m in love with this song! From Katharine Mcphee‘s sophomore record Unbroken which features Jason Reeves on the track. The song gained fame when AI contestant Didi Benami performed the song on Hollywood week. A music video was then released but this time featuring Zachary Levi of Chuck singing. This is Mcphee’s 2nd single after “Had It All”. I kinda missed her, I don’t know if the new ‘do suits her best but it’s definitely edgier and I almost didn’t recognize her. She looks beautiful as always.

This track was written by Kara Dioguardi and Reeves. You know I’m starting to like Kara, I don’t like her as a judge on AI but man, she’s a good songwriter. She writes everything from pop, rnb and country and worked with the biggest artists too: Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson, Faith Hill, Christina Aguilera, Carrie Underwood, Pink, Cobra Starship, Hilary Duff, name it! She actually has a video on Youtube singing this song. She’s the damn trifecta! 🙂

Have a listen and read on to see the video and lyrics:

You, by the light
Is the greatest find
In a world full of wrong
You’re the thing that’s right

Finally made it through the lonely
To the other side

You set it again, my heart’s in motion
Every word feels like a shooting star
I’m at the edge of my emotions
Watching the shadows burning in the dark

And I’m in love
And I’m terrified
For the first time and the last time
In my only life

And this could be good
It’s already better than that
And nothing’s worse
Than knowing you’re holding back

I could be all that you need
If you let me try

You set it again, my heart’s in motion
Every word feels like a shooting star
I’m at the edge of my emotions
Watching the shadows burning in the dark

And I’m in love
And I’m terrified
For the first time and the last time
In my only

I only said it ’cause I mean it
I only mean ’cause it’s true
So don’t you doubt what I’ve been dreaming
‘Cause it fills me up and holds me close whenever I’m without you

You set it again, my heart’s in motion
Every word feels like a shooting star
I’m at the edge of my emotions
Watching the shadows burning in the dark

And I’m in love
And I’m terrified
For the first time and the last time
In my only
