Song: “Symptom of a Stumbling”
Artist: The Reign Of Kindo
Album: This Is What Happens (2010)

Lyrics taken from genius.com

Fast Asleep
She’s next to me
Her heart, it beats
So steadily

Her hopes and fears
And all her Dreams
She puts in me
So trustingly

The weight of love is more than all the world
Requiring a strength I can’t provide
But gravity, love strangely may defy
If only I was not so terrified

I’ve seen her smile
I’ve made her cry
I’ve been embraced
I’ve been denied

All these things
A symptom of
A stumbling towards a perfect love

The weight of love is more than all the world
Requiring a strength I can’t provide
But gravity, love strangely may defy
If only I was not so terrified

These doubts that are arising
They’ve become so paralyzing
Am I what she wants
Am I what she needs
Or am I just a letdown she can’t see

My burning heart
Oh how it yearns
To be intrigued
At every turn

I’ve tried so hard
To walk the line
But nothing keeps me satisfied

The weight of love is more than all the world
Requiring a strength I can’t provide
But gravity, love strangely may defy
If only I was not so terrified

 “Symptom of a Stumbling”, taken from The Reign of Kindo’s 2010 album This is What Happens, is a driving song about regret, love, and relationships. Insistent piano forms the backbone of the tune as Joseph Secchiaroli croons atop. The lyrics describe the tenuous tightrope walk of loving another person; the ups and downs, the doubts and certainties, and the difficulty of giving yourself to another person completely. Kick drum and brushes add to the upbeat pace with little musical embellishments added in to fill out the song.
