Without wasting any time, the song’s sparse and effective work begins in earnest. Accompanied by only the guitar at first Eddy Bayes explores some of the fear that can seep into a life, the fear of love, the fear of what might happen to those most cherished in a life. Once the strings are brought into the mix the piece takes a particularly tender tone as the string lift up ever so gently, revealing a darker sort of impulse. Eddy Bayes reveals a worry about what happens when a person gets too wild, are they able to find peace, or will they merely try to continue down that path, as it is an intrinsic part of their nature?
Eddy Bayes taps into the best of a quiet emotional sound with the moving work of “Motionless”.
