Adam Melchor's "Last Time" Is an Ode to Unspoken Goodbyes

Life is unpredictable. Nothing is ever really permanent, especially emotions. In "Last Time," Adam Melchor tackles the fickle nature of humans, crafting a beautiful and incredibly vulnerable song.

"Last Time" begins with Melchor's soft-spoken vocals and simple guitar, giving the lyrics all the space necessary to remain the focus. The song continues to build, ending with a powerful string arrangement, making the song feel cinematic and perfectly encapsulating the overwhelming rush of thoughts that come with overthinking.

In his own words,

"The song is about leaving someone at an airport and the feeling of watching them walk away from you. In that moment, I ask myself 'is this the last time I'll see this person?' and proceed to walk myself through every good and bad scenario until ultimately, I see them again."

In transcribing his stream of consciousness and fears of the future, Melchor inadvertently reminds listeners of the fleeting nature of the present and to enjoy every moment with those you love as it unfolds. "Last Time" marks a strong start for Melchor, who no doubt has an exciting year ahead.
