You’ve just gotta cry sometimes. And I mean, really cry. The ugly cry. Courtney Marie Andrews’ “How You Get Hurt” is so evocative, so emotional, so visceral, you can’t help but open the floodgates. The cascade of tears will certainly be cathartic, and probably bring back some unexpected memories.
“Thought of calling, thought of letters / Thought of you almost everyday,” Andrews sings. Her ache is our ache. “But maybe this distance is for the better / Til we both learn how to stay / I don’t wanna get hurt…” What a doozy!
