Joshua Hawkes struggles with loneliness in “All Falls Down”


Singer-songwriter Joshua Hawkes from South Yorkshire, UK, is back with his latest single “All Falls Down.” This new track comes after the release of his debut single, “This Will All Be Over Soon” released in 2021.

With “All Falls Down,” Hawkes explores folk-pop, grabbing you from the first note. The strumming of electric guitar sets the stage, letting you into Hawkes’ poetic world. Hawkes sings, “Pick apart the pieces you don’t like about me / I only want to hear that you’d be lost without me now.” He grapples with the fear of loneliness and of being alone, laying bare his innermost thoughts in a vulnerable way.

Hawkes’ soft voice travels throughout the song, creating this dreamy, calm atmosphere. The song explores the breakdown of Hawkes’ relationship as he pleads with his romantic partner to love him as they once did. He sings, “‘Cause I don’t want to lose you / So come and love me like you used to.” It’s a moment of yearning and nostalgia, but the relationship might just be doomed.

Through “All Falls Down,” Hawkes captures the complex emotions of human connection, even if it’s inevitably sad.
