With the release of her third single, Flora Summers has once again showcased her remarkable talent and innate ability to convey her honest emotions. “Little While Longer” captures the unrelenting desire to desperately hold onto someone you love, even though you know it will inevitably end. Summers wrote the first verse when she was nineteen, but due to the lack of tools and experience, she never finished the song. She presented it in different songwriting sessions overtime, but “no one really understood it.” Fortunately for Summers and her devote listeners, the artist learned to produce her own music and fans are now able to listen to the finished product. The vulnerable lyrics describe the singer’s inability to admit when “enough is enough” and walk away from something she knows is no longer healthy or good. This is reflected in the chorus as Summers sings: “Be mine a little while, little while, little while longer// Cause baby we are losing touch and I can’t// Really cannot give you up yet// I wanna be in love with you and me.” Furthermore, throughout the verses, she paints a vivid picture of the relationship and how the beginning of the end is unfolding before her eyes. Her detailed imagery and poetic lyricism are one of the many reasons fans fall in love with her, making Summers a remarkable artist that deserves to shoot up into complete stardom.
