Kev Brown has never been in a serious relationship before. That is probably because he can relate to women. This of course makes things difficult for him to connect to women. Being lonely is a regular thing for him as he spends his days isolated. He stays busy in the studio recording, composing, and producing songs.
These lyrics hint his experience with heartbreak. “Seems like every girl I’ve chosen, heart’s frozen/Or maybe I don’t know how to pick, tho/Seems like every chick I know is out to get dough/And I ain’t gotta lot of that, and I don’t front about it/You think I’ma be hittin’ you off without it?Crazy/Where they come off at?” He is tired of having bad experiences with women.
He tells women to leave him isolated if they have nothing offer in him in return for their reciprocated love. Read these lyrics below.
I’ma ’bout to start lettin’ these broads know off the bat
If you ain’t bringin’ nothin’ to the table, then leave
Give a dude room to breathe, and then maybe you can proceed
Somethin’ real instead of the fake
Somethin’ you feel and appreciate
Worth the wait
It’s always got to be somethin’
It’s like… what the heck is this?
These lyrics explain how difficult it is for Kev to understand woman. He has experienced all types of temptations.
You know I’m really tryin’ not to be a pessimist
But on the other hand
I cram to understand your plan
Feminine ways is like a maze with a Minotaur in the middle
Women be thinkin’ we all dogs without the kennel
You don’t even know what I’ve been through
Cuz y’all be comin’ wit’ all types of drama I don’t wanna get into
All types of temptations,
With your small waist… and thick hips…
Kev Brown explores relationships, escapism, and heart break while reflecting on his own personal relationship issues on the song Albany. Kev Brown wonders why his relationship to his girl didn’t work out. He is just wondering about her but not crying over her. Albany uses a capo transposer over the acoustics.
They were close to starting something but life got in the way. There was some courtship going during the beginning of their relationship. They went on a couple of dates. However their lives took them both on different directions. This happens in our lifetime. He would loved to have gone further in their relationship but some things aren’t meant to be.
Kev thought about his ex today. It’s been a long time since Kev seen her last. It’s like time moves too fast to keep your grasp. At least sometimes it does. He was going to call her but she is busy. He keeps thinking about their first date. The whole vibe was chill. They both had a lot in common. Now they are worlds apart. He misses her goodnight kisses.
He laments about what led them break apart from their relationship in these lyrics. “I wonder what it was that made you fall back?/I wonder what it was, but I won’t dwell on that/We never hung out that much, still/When we did hang out”
He doesn’t even know what to say. Kev went back to his hometown for a minute. However he ended up staying down here indefinitely. He has questions but no answers. Sadly he had to roll on a brand new friendship. It could have been a little romance too.
I rate this single 5/5*****!!
