Life can be a whirlwind of emotions, a rollercoaster of love, anxiety, and self-discovery. It’s a journey we all undertake, and it’s beautifully captured in Jenny Stenger’s latest single, “What Ifs.”
The song is a poignant exploration of that all-too-relatable moment when the fear of the unknown overshadows the thrill of newfound affection. With vivid lyrics that tug at the heartstrings, Stenger paints a picture of the emotional turmoil that often accompanies our choices when the worries of self-preservation overrides our pursuit of love.
“What Ifs” is about calling a relationship off over fears of what could potentially go wrong. It can be easy to prepare for the worst and end something good because you’re afraid it’ll turn bad. This song is about the aftermath of realizing you self-sabotaged and ruined a chance at love and hoping that chance is still there.” – Jenny Stenger
What Ifs” takes listeners on a powerful and moving experience. It captures the yearning we feel for a love tinged with the ever-present fear of its potential loss. Stenger’s ability to illustrate this delicate tightrope walk is nothing short of captivating. It leaves us with a hauntingly beautiful reflection of the fragility and strength of one’s heart. Stenger’s lyrics evoke the raw and vulnerable feelings that come with this self-reflective experience and her voice acts as a conduit for the listener, inviting them to join her in a profound exploration of the human experience.
