On The Safest Ledge (4:18)

Cover of You Are My Sunshine

From You Are My Sunshine

From Spin.com

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.

Don't look ahead, just run to me
Each step will find the next one recklessly
We'll find ourselves on the safest ledge
Well, pardon me, I couldn't help myself
