On The Safest Ledge (4:18)

Cover of You Are My Sunshine

The title of “On the Safest Ledge,” the delicate second single off Floridian indie-rockers Copeland’s forthcoming album, You Are My Sunshine, may induce a feeling of security, but its lyrics are far more concerned with doubt than certainty. “[It’s] all about discomfort and how lovely and scary it is to not know what your next step will be,” vocalist/guitarist/pianist Aaron Marsh tells SPIN.com about the swelling, string-backed track.

“Don’t look ahead / Just run to me / Each step we’ll find / The next one recklessly,” Marsh sings, carrying an unsure message of hope, before segueing into the soaring chorus, which features a heavenly vocal turn by singer/songwriter Rae Cassidy. “The ascending melody on the chorus is pretty different for us,” Marsh says. “Also, I think the guest appearance by Cassidy on the bridge of the tune is very moving.” So do we, Mr. Marsh, so do we.
