On this sweet and gentle ballad Karen Jonas seems to be having trouble with a sensitive date – all she wants is a chance to get to know them better, but, wouldn’t you know it “all my wanting has scared you away.” Well that’s the risk with the ones who “like to be alone.” Oh – it’s all so confusing. It all comes from a heartfelt place. as Karen Jonas reflects on re-entering the world of dating following her divorce.
‘Summer’s Hard for Love‘ appears on Karen’s forthcoming EP ‘Summer Songs’, set for release on August 20th, along with an autobiographical book of poetry called ‘Gumballs’. The two go hand-in-hand: ‘Gumballs’ is a reflection on what has been, and ‘Summer Songs’ is a snapshot of now.
