Riff: The Lumineers – “Stubborn Love”

Jan 2, 2013

She’ll tear a hole in you, the one you can’t repair/But I still love her, I don’t really care

from stubborn love lyrics by The Lumineers

There’s nothing groundbreaking about “Stubborn Love.” It’s a simple ode, emphasizing the ebb and flow, the pain and pleasure, of love and loss. The song holds a nice balance to it, and although the theme has been done to death it’s refreshing, from time to time, to revisit the simple facts of life.
