SONG PICK: Lauren Hulbert – Gone in One
Being trapped in a one-sided relationship that is going nowhere is a special kind of hell. Oakland-based singer/songwriter Lauren Hulbert gives us a personal account of the painful back and forth, waiting in vain for the moment that might change everything. Earthy guitars and drums keep “Gone in One” on the rockier side of Lauren’s spectrum – she is a classically trained pianist, who picked up the guitar later.
How did the story end? Lauren recalls:
I was constantly running internally, but getting nowhere, until I was exhausted into total indifference and I felt like the real me had been erased. Eventually, I realized I was the only one that could really save myself, so I dug really deep and found the strength to get out, which was incredibly hard. I didn’t know when or how I’d heal, but I knew I was on the right path.
