Katelyn Barr Sings About Growing Up on “lights”

The pandemic shifted everyone’s lives. That much will always be true. However, the younger generation may have been impacted a bit more. For example, I work with a recent college grad who graduated in 2020 who described her commencement ceremony. Long story short, she was given the option to walk in 2022. By that time, everyone was like “screw it” and lost out on an important milestone of sorts.

The song “lights” deals a bit with the way the world changed for younger people while also delving into psychological topics such as impostor syndrome. This is all while the song doesn’t exactly feel all doom and gloom, also having a tinge of nostalgia to it all. However, it’s that duality which helps hammer home Barr’s thoughts and concerns about returning to campus after being away for so long. It’s a great song, one that’ll pull at your heart while also make you think about your own place in the world. The children truly are our (in this case, musical) future.
