Song of the Day, September 16: Soul to Feet by Kathryn Williams

Today’s song is Soul to Feet by Kathryn Williams. It’s another stunning track from her second album, Little Black Numbers. Set against a simple acoustic guitar and cello with minimal percussion, it’s a deceptively quiet song. The lyrics are a clever dismantling of a self-important person. Williams skewers the constant stream of inanities that the subject utters to avoid being part of anyone else’s life.

Is your life so exciting
You have to tell everyone you meet
Try to make it so enticing
You wear your soul out to your feet
Always leave before them
You want them to think
You’ve got so much to do
Maybe they’re not thinking of you

Enjoy this masterful song today.
