Some of us are hopeless romantics. Falling in love has always been the plan but what happens when that comes to an end? Imagining your partner with someone new is torture and finding someone for yourself seems worse. What happens when it all comes to an end? Insult to Injury by Natalie Barth answers this question for us. When a hopeless romantic falls in love it is near impossible for them to fall out of it, hence the hopeless part. So, begging for one last kiss can’t be too bad right?
Insult to Injury is one of those songs that sticks with you. Whether it's the powerful vocals or the relatable lyrics. We can’t seem to get enough of the song. The track opens with strums of an electric guitar and Natalie Barth’s sweet-sounding voice. As we shift towards the chorus the instrumental swells. The electric guitar becomes more prevalent and Natalie's vocals rise simultaneously boosting the energy of the record. Natalie sings of being in love with someone so deeply she is doing everything to keep the relationship together. The relationship doesn’t seem to be the best for her but her love for her partner is so strong she can’t let go. She is begging for one more kiss from this person before they go their separate ways. The lyrics are littered with reminders that this relationship isn't the best and one more kiss will do nothing for them yet Natalie needs it. Being a hopeless romantic can sometimes result in a need for any kind of love and Insult to Injury perfectly captures the pain of that.
