"Lät du henna komma närmre" (If you let her get closer) is the lead single off Swedish singer/songwriter Melissa Horn's second album Säg ingenting till mig (2009). It's an intimate ballad, both musically and to a certain extent lyrically, reminiscent of anything by Janis Ian, a song full of doubt, and at the same time, certainty. It's tender and vulnerable, and utterly and stark naked in its sincerity. Wearing your heart on a sleeve? This is how.
