Lyle Kam releases a heartfelt pop ballad, entitled, “what if i had told you”

Lyle Kam is a singer-songwriter and producer based in Toronto, Canada. Not too long ago, he released a heartfelt pop ballad, entitled, “what if i had told you.”

Lyle Kam – “what if i had told you” single

“What if I had told you I had landed in your town? ‘Cause I’ve been looking for a reason just so I could see you now. And I know that I’m just acting impulsively irrational. But I just want to see you now ‘cause I know we’ve been few and far behind. And I get so worried wondering if I missed the perfect time. But I’d rather be alone and wrong than stuck where I am right now. Just please don’t keep me in the dark.” – lyrics

‘what if i had told you’ tells a heartbreaking tale about a young guy who flies out of town to visit a very special person, someone who he wants to spend the rest of his life with. When his plane lands, he fails to contact the object of his desire because there’s a high possibility that the person doesn’t want to see him anymore. At that moment, he admits his deepest fear, “I was always scared you’d leave me and not say goodbye.”

‘what if i had told you’ will be featured on Lyle Kam’s upcoming EP. His aim with the song is for it to feel raw and intimate because of how personal the topic is. There’s the obvious sadness and wistfulness of the lyrics, but beyond that, there’s a more subtle meaning behind them. Also, the lyrics signify the understanding that maybe there’s nothing left to salvage of the relationship, that it ran its course, and it’s only a matter of time before two people who were close become strangers.

“Please don’t hate me after it all.”

“This song really taught me to go after and fight for the things you want before it’s too late. You can’t guarantee that someone who has always been in your life will always be in your life. It’s a general life lesson that life is too short to always be questioning yourself.” – Lyle Kam explained

Lyle Kam channels sonic inspiration from artists like Lauv, Jeremy Zucker, and Charlie Puth. After the success of his debut EP, “Folly,” which features the TikTok viral single, “Unlove,” – Lyle is returning in 2022 with a fresh batch of music featuring his trademark introspection about love, loss, and belonging.
