Meanwhile, “The Lovells Stockade Blues” reflects on Brooke’s current hometown Lovells, Michigan, a town with a population no big than 1,000 people, consisting of a supermarket, gas station and small buildings all around. Brooke serenades the tune with her haunting voice singing of the long winters and slow-paced atmosphere. “Awful Part of Me” sets out with a beautiful string arrangement somewhat reminiscing the 1970’s Nashville Sound with a twist of Outlaw scene interwind in between.
The album comes to an end with the emotional timelapse “I Miss it Like It’s Gone,” that is open for interpretation, where listeners themselves can interpret the song as wanting, paving out the way of the so far taken journey in life.
