Review: "Lost Without You" - Drew Schueler
In "Lost Without You" Schueler sings about how he was completely lost in life before he found his love. He sings about how he's worried to let this incomplete part of him shine through and expresses how he feels as if this other person is the only thing that's keeping him afloat. Listeners are able to sympathize with Schueler because sometimes people do feel very lost in life when they don't have someone to ground them. He sings about how "all these other things don't feel right to me" and how he "wasted so much time chasing every high." He's worried that without them, he would be thrown off track again since everything is right in the world when they are around.
One of the main aspects of this song that stands out is how the entire vibe of the song is so chill, but Schueler is still able to express the depth of emotion he feels about this topic. It's evident that this is a piece about a transition between some pretty extreme stages in life and Schueler captures the emotions and feelings tied in with this experience extremely well. His voice sounds so passionate, and his lyricism reveals how much importance this other person holds to him. Even though the melody is pretty chill, it still has a bit of a kick to it. There are some pretty powerful beats and a bit of energy in the melody overall. This piece truly is a great song that expresses finding your grounding through the person you love.
