My Sunday Song – “Shatter Me” by Lindsey Stirling (feat. Lzzy Hale)

For My Sunday Song #64, I chose a classical pop track called “Shatter Me” by Lindsey Stirling.  If you don’t know Lindsey, shame on you, she is an American violinist who performs what is called classical crossover.  It is classical music with a Pop twist to it is how would describe it.  The song “Shatter Me” was off her second album of the same name. It was actually Lindsey’s first attempt at writing lyrics and normally the songs are instrumentals only.  I have loved this song since I first heard it and was reminded of it when I saw Lindsey on Dancing With the Stars…and she is pretty good.

The song features the powerhouse vocals of Halestorm’s lead singer Lzzy Hale.  The combination of Lindsey’s musical stylings and Lzzy’s rock vocals delivers one of the best songs of 2014.  The song would go on to reach #39 on the Billboard Adult Pop songs and was her first charting song.

The song has a positive message about breaking free or shattering the image of what you think people want you to be to being what you want to be.  It is about being strong and having the courage to push the limits of who you can be and what you can do.  The rock edge to the song and that violin together prove to be a powerful force in delivering this strong message.

I hope the song inspires you in some way or you simply find some enjoyment in listening to the song.  So sit back and Enjoy!!  Happy Sunday!

“Shatter Me”
(feat. Lzzy Hale)

[Verse 1 – Lzzy Hale:]
I pirouette in the dark
I see the stars through a mirror
Tired mechanical heart
Beats ’til the song disappears

[Chorus:]
Somebody shine a light
I’m frozen by the fear in me
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me
So cut me from the line
Dizzy, spinning endlessly
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me

[Violin drop]

Shatter me!
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me

[Verse 2:]
If only the clockwork could speak
I wouldn’t be so alone
We’d burn every magnet and spring
And spiral into the unknown

[Chorus]

[Violin drop]

[Bridge:]
If I break the glass then I’ll have to fly
There’s no one to catch me if I take a dive
I’m scared of changing
The days stay the same
The world is spinning but only in gray
If I break the glass then I’ll have to fly
There’s no one to catch me if I take a dive
I’m scared of changing
The days stay the same
The world is spinning but only in gray
(Only…)

[Chorus]

[Violin drop]

Me…!
Shatter me!
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me!

Written by Lindsey Stirling, Dia Frampton and Mark Maxwell
