This rises into the chorus that is sure to stick in your brain for a while. His performance is unbelievably relatable as he considers the knowledge that you need to move on but feel the creeping sense of fear and anxiety over this. The passion he has for what he does is woven wonderfully into the performance and builds his presence which can be clearly felt throughout the single.
