Riley Taylor’s New Single “You Left Me” Echoes Heartache

Has someone ever made you think that they shoulda, coulda, mighta been ‘the one’ and then broke up with you? If yes, then we have a song for you!

Riley Taylor’s newest release “You Left Me” explores the all-too-relatable feelings of falling in love with somebody only to have them break up with you. 

“You Left Me”: A Song That Captures the Essence of Getting Broken up with

“You Left Me” is an emotional heartbreak ballad that highlights the frustrations and pain that is felt after getting broken up with by somebody you love. 

When somebody breaks up with you, they can leave behind tainted versions of your favourite things, such as a song, bar or town. This song’s lyrics capture that feeling well as he sings, “One less song, I can let play / One less bar, to drink you away / One less town to drive into / ‘Cause now it’s cut clean in-two.” 

The word “relatable” jumps to mind when listening to this song. While not all of us may have experienced a breakup as devastating as this one, many of us have had to make difficult calls like this before, or perhaps lost a friend in a similar way. 

With excellent imagery that describes the emotions felt in the turmoil of love’s end and the repetition of “One less” to highlight the void left by the absence of someone who has left you, this song is a perfect addition to your breakup playlist – or if you’re just in the mood for a good sing-along!
