Maren Morris is hard at work on the follow-up to her 2016 major label debut “Hero” and she gave fans at a recent concert an early listen to a brand new song. While she didn’t reveal the song’s title, she did share some of the lyrics in a caption on Instagram.
“…lucky for me, your kind of heaven has been to hell & back.” played a new one from album 2 tonight,” she shared on Instagram.
In the short clip, Maren is seen on stage with her acoustic guitar. The delicate ballad has her singing of having a checkered past and learning that a new love interest doesn’t care about that past and has no interest in changing who she is.
“Smoke was comin’ off my jacket and you didn’t seem to mind / I left a long trail of ashes,” she sings on the first verse. She continues to sing of past heartbreak and how “the skeletons I wanted to bury you locked out in the light.”
“You didn’t save me / You didn’t think I needed saving / You didn’t change me / You didn’t think I needed changing / My wings are frayed and what’s left of my halo’s black / But lucky for me your kind of heaven has been to hell and back,” she sings on the chorus. Listen to a snippet of the song below.
While Maren hasn’t revealed an official release date for her sophomore album, she has hinted that she’s been thinking of adding to her family. The singer married Ryan Hurd earlier this year and while on a long flight she asked her Twitter followers to ask her some tough questions to answer. One of her fans asked if she planned to have kids someday to which she replied, “I literally have it blocked out on my calendar next year.”
do you plan to have kids someday?
