…hurt I couldn’t keep, LIZZIE NO The Heartbreak Store
by Walter Price
What price would you put on fading memories or momentos of love lost? Just imagine, that around the corner from a local branch of the Heartbreak Hotel, there was a shop that would take those tear-stained keepsakes off your hands and put a lil trying to moving-on comfort cash in your pockets. Lizzie No’s recent picturesque and aptly titled single, “The Heartbreak Store”, will give you directions to such a place.
Lizzie No has a lullaby voice that could sell you anything, and this song has some palpable verses on offer. “The cashier knows the drill/ I came to sell all the hurt I couldn’t keep/ And she gives me that box to fill/ Don’t know who’s buying what I’m selling cheap/ If I can’t fall out of love at least I’ll set it down…”. A scene formed so cinematically.
I’m new to the Lizzie No-verse and intend to stay a spell.
“The Heartbreak Shop” is from the forthcoming album “Halfsies” expected on January 19, 2024, via Thirty Tigers/Miss Freedomland. As you pre-order, you can stream the memories for sale single, here at the GTC.
