"It takes more than luck to last the ride / It takes strength and it takes courage to survive." -- Nerina Pallot

This is a literate, emotional song, the kind to get you through bad times. The lyrics, with thoughtful, sisterly Zen advice could possibly make you cry if you’re feeling a little sensitive, but the melody is catchy enough to pull you out of whatever downer I hope you’re not in.


There’s a strong sense of movement, but it’s compactly written, covering a relatively wide narrative and impressive musical ground in only three minutes.
  
The video compliments what we’re hearing, and Nerina looks sultry and beautiful.


All in all, this is close to pop perfection.
