The release of Carrie Underwood’s Storyteller is just around the corner, due out this Friday, October 23rd. But the singer has been treating her fans to under-the-radar releases in the form of audio only music videos. The most recent release is the jaw-droppingly emotional love song What I Never Knew I Always Wanted. By all accounts and purposes, it’s a love song that’s made for the independent woman that ends up falling for the man they never knew they were dreaming of. For so many women these days, it’s hard to let themselves let go of their career aspirations and personal goals to focus on getting married and having kids. Essentially, Underwood reassures those of us that finally let it happen that it’s okay for us all to let that right person in that right moment come into our lives.
The beautiful lyrics paint a picture of a woman who fell in love without even trying, and found the missing pieces of herself come together in the most intense way. Check out the chorus:
I finally found what I never knew I always wanted
I couldn’t see, I was blind ’til my eyes were opened
I didn’t know there was a hole
Something missing in my soul
Til you filled it up with your love
Yeah, you filled it up with your love
Underwood has no lack of hits to her name, and though this sweet song will likely not be a single, it still stands out as one of my favorite tracks she’s released so far off of Storyteller. There’s something to be said for music where you can feel the heart and soul of the musician within them. This love song, written for her husband Mike Fisher and baby Isaiah, definitely checks all those emotional boxes that fans live for when it comes to Mrs. Carrie Underwood.
But take a listen for yourself. Don’t say I didn’t warn you about the tears.
