David Cook, ‘Fade Into Me’ – Song Review
The track opens with gentle acoustic guitar strumming that leads up to a more powerful chorus, as electric guitars support Cook's hook: "Fade into me, fade into you / Two of us melting together until we become something new / We can't escape / And watch the world chasing to find us / Both of us hidden from view / If you fade into me, fade into me."
Sweeping strings build up the drama as Cook continues to sing about two people who make each other whole: "When I'm broken, you're the one thing I need / Like an ocean, I feel you crash over me / We disappear into each other / Colors appear and bleed into one."
'Fade Into Me' is not the most imaginative song we've ever heard, but its honest, sincere message should resonate with listeners. Cook penned the track with Jamie Houston and with Better Than Ezra singer Kevin Griffin, who co-wrote Sugarland's 'Stuck Like Glue.'
A video for 'Fade Into Me' is coming at the end of October. The song appears on Cook's sophomore album 'This Loud Morning,' which entered the Top 10 upon its release in June. You can hear the song live in concert by catching Cook's current tour with Gavin DeGraw.
