“Don’t fear.”

We’ve all heard breakup songs or the I-don’t want-to-get-hurt-again songs that left us feeling more depressed after listening to them. Yet, here is Emily King, a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, who somehow makes that I-don’t want-to-get-hurt-again song triumphant with “The Animals”. Upon the second listen (OK, maybe it was the third, fourth, or fifth time, but who is counting?), the listener will discover that she is also talking about not feeding your fears too. Check out the cool, chromatic video:

“The Animals” is from Emily’s forthcoming album, The Switch, out on June 26th

Emily King just released an exquisite video for “Distance”. The song is amazing and the visuals are captivating. I could not help analyzing the vivid vintage look of each shot. I don’t know about you, but I love when an artist’s music video matches the feel of the song. Kudos to director, Paul Jung for capturing the emotion accurately.

Emily King Just Has An “Ordinary Heart” (with lyrics)

On the first day of May, Emily King graced her fans with a brand new single, “Ordinary Heart.” As usual, the New York songstress knows how to evoke memories of past and present love. Take a listen, and the lyrics are below.

“Ordinary Heart” is available for free download.

Lyrics

baby I don’t want to lead you on
feed you empty promises and never follow through
there’s a lot of things that I do wrong
if you’re looking for the perfect one this aint for you

’cause what I’ve got is just an ordinary heart
but I’ll give it more than anybody
you can always trust this ordinary heart

maybe I don’t want to let you down
tell you that I’ll always be around and miss my cue
I can be a lover and a fool
every now and then I lose my cool that’s what I do

’cause what I’ve got is just an ordinary heart
but I’ll give it more than anybody
you can always trust this ordinary heart

I know you’re scared that I might change
or even worse I’ll stay the same

’cause what I’ve got is just an ordinary heart
but I’ll give it more than anybody
you can always trust this ordinary heart
