Senseless crushes, deathly urgencies – remembering the hurt and reality of what had been. A flash of gold, in the steppes of dirt and raw weather. A relationship that made us surrender to the ounce of benefit, among the sea of the negatives and hardships to come.
Love is a powerful piece of armor, giving its all, when it all seems the world is all against you.
Ciara said: “‘Victory’ was written after quite a few unexpected tough life moments for me. It is me essentially saying that you can try to bring me to my knees but I am going to get back up because I will always have the victory.”
The crushing blows of life, diminish and take slabs of your soul. As the years roll by, our resistance to life’s biddings, become less apparent and easier to succumb.
Ciara doesn’t want this to be. Ciara doesn’t want this colliding torture for anyone.
‘Victory’ is of her and of our own experiences. A slap back at the wave of life, saying “We’re not done yet.”
Beautiful vocals, sensibly mahogany, dance our imaginations back to where it seemed, everything was possible.
