Life is never as you expect it to be. Emily Scott Robinson ruminates on a chance encounter with a fellow wayward soul on a song called “Lost Woman’s Prayer,” a deep cut on her new record American Siren. “Grant you grace for the hard days / And may you be kind to yourself,” she sings, imparting wisdom given to her over red wine. “Run reckless and headlong toward your biggest fears / Pull your dusty dreams down off the shelf.” It’s such sage advice that operates as cogs in the machine of life, and we’re all simply stumbling around trying to make sense of it all.
