A Beautiful Exit

Album: Wildheart (2015)
  • The opening track from Miguel's third studio album is about staying true to yourself instead of changing to meet the world's expectations. "This was initially supposed to be an admonition, a warning, an encouragement, all wrapped into one journey that is inevitably a crazy balance between hope and desperation," the singer told Entertainment Weekly. "Over that journey you're going to deal with adversity. There's a line where it's basically saying, 'Don't mute your colors because the rest of the world is very muted.' I say, 'Don't worry about that. They don't dream in colors. We do.'"
