Music Poetry – “Sarah” by Alex G

Sarah is the 15th song on Alex G’s 2012 album Trick. This song seems to be about feeling guilty about an ex. Lyrics like “Every day I’ll make promises that plague Sarah’s heart” and “Did I make a mistake?” make it feel very regretful. That first line feels like an especially regretful reflective statement about the empty promises he wishes he hadn’t made. In the opening verses, he paints a very abstract but evocative picture of Sarah and his memory of her. The metaphors used are very powerful while remaining interesting and fresh from a lyrical perspective, but also in their own context as poetry.
