Cf Watkins released the single, ‘Frances‘, which is off the upcoming ‘Babygirl‘. Grab your tissue because this one’s a tearjerker. The new single, ‘Frances‘, is a beautifully written song about aging and lost love. The song was inspired by a moment where Watkins’ Grandfather mistook her for her grandmother. Here’ what Watkins had to say about the story behind ‘Frances‘:
“My grandfather developed dementia in his old age and was in and out of hospitals for the last few years of his life. One day toward the end, I was visiting him in the hospital and my dad told me it was not a good day and not to be hurt if he didn’t recognize or speak to me,” she recalls. “When I approached his bed, he immediately started crying, which I had never seen before. He grabbed my hand and told me he was sorry, he said, ‘I should have told you I loved you more, I should have told you I loved you every day.’ I told him I knew he loved me, and he said, ‘Frances, I’m so sorry.’ I realized then that he thought I was her. I hope he was able to get the closure that he needed with her in that moment.
‘Frances‘ is simply a beautifully written song. It’s Lyrically detailed with minimal instrumentation. The vocals bring out the depth of emotions captured in this moment in time.
