“Life Away” is the second single from the album “Live Life and Tell Stories” by John Robinson & Figub Brazlevic and is a compelling story that touches on the potential consequences of infidelity, crime, and other dark secrets that may come to light through surveillance technology.
The track centers around an apology to a partner for cheating while on tour, and the regret and remorse that come with such actions. Through poignant lyrics and smooth, jazzy beats, John Robinson masterfully weaves a tale that is both relatable and thought-provoking.
The theme of the song is particularly relevant in our modern world, where cameras and other innovative technologies are increasingly present in our daily lives. “Life Away” serves as a cautionary tale, reminding listeners of the potential consequences of actions taken in secret. I refuse to throw my LIFE AWAY!!
