“Drifting” by Nathan Ball – A Song Review

     For us, a Nathan Ball single is similar to a warm, ground-level fog that moves slowly until it fully envelops us with a comforting warmth that questions why we waited for the experience, instead of rushing in its direction. We fully appreciate Ball’s work only after a single has been released for a few months.

     In October of last year, Nathan Ball released “Drifting.” In explaining the song, Ball said, “It’s a really personal song about self-reflection, exploring the idea of seeing yourself through someone else’s eyes, knowing something isn’t right but feeling there’s nothing you can do about it.”

Lyrics of “Drifting” by Nathan Ball
I can see it in your eyes
When you lie awake at night
You convince yourself you're fine, it's alright
To keep on drifting

With the drugs keeping you high
They catch you falling from the sky
I keep asking myself why,
You stand by
And keep on drifting
And keep on drifting

Oh, I can feel it coming
See it in your eyes
See it that you're not right

Oh, you feeling something?
Just see it in your eyes,
See it that you're not right

You're not right
We're not right
That you’re not right

So, tell me what you hold inside
Tell the backstreets of your mind
You're still lonely as a child
Teary eyed
And kept on drifting
Oooo, kept on drifting

Oh, I can feel it coming
Just see it your eyes
See it that you're not right

Oh, are you feeling something?
Can see it in your eyes
See it that you're not right
You’re not right
You’re not right
That you’re not right

So, take my hand and hold on
And take my hand, don't let go
Ooooooo

Oh, I can feel it coming
See it in your eyes
See it that you’re not right

Oh, you're feeling something
See it in you’re eyes
See that you're not right

You’re not right
You’re not right
That you’re not right
You’re not right

We're not right
We're not right
That you’re not right
