“What are you afraid of?
It’s always on your terms.
I meet you halfway,
But I never seem to learn.”
So sings Rose Norris on “Halfway,” her simple yet powerful song from the album, Rose.fm.
Halfway is one step beyond where her lover’s willing to go, one touch more than he’s willing to give, one glance more than his eyes can handle, that one step he needs to take to fall blindingly, relentlessly, unequivocally — frightfully — in love. And, to her dismay, it’s a step that never seems to come.
Without adornment, with nothing more than her voice and an acoustic guitar, this Minneapolis based singer delivers this tune beautifully, with captivating passion and a lightly sandpapered edge.
