Try Your Wings - Amel Larrieux
If you’ve been unlucky in love, it can make you want to close your heart off forever. However, the longing to be open your heart again is always there. R&B songstress Amel Larrieux sings sweetly of such musings in her cover of an old Blossom Dearie jazz tune “Try Your Wings”. The song delicately encourages the wounded heart to break free towards romance. “If you’ve never been in love / And you’re longin’ for the happiness it brings / Try your wings.” It uses the bluebird leaving the nest to fly as an example, saying any heart can soar if it takes a chance on a dream.
