Girls like Edie shared the stage with female rock icons at the iconic Anna Bulbrook’s Girl School festival, presented by Kristin Kontrol at the now-closed Bootleg Theater. It was there that Edie, in a life-changing experience, performed “Fade Into You.” The song has remained a cherished cover for her ever since, a constant reminder of that unforgettable night.

“Fade Into You” by Edie Yvonne isn’t your ordinary love song. It explores the desire for a closer bond and a way to close the distance between two souls that appear to be in separate worlds. Long after the last notes pass, the sorrowful beauty of the song continues to remain.

The lyrics paint a picture of one person desperately seeking a connection with another. Lines like “I want to hold the hand inside you, I want to take the breath that’s true” showcase a desire to understand the other’s deepest self, their unfiltered emotions.

However, there’s an undercurrent of frustration. The repeated refrain “You never know” suggests a sense of futility. The narrator feels their affections are invisible, a “stranger’s light” that goes unnoticed. The line “Slowly, a stranger’s heart was without home” emphasizes the loneliness of this one-sided longing.

The song’s emotional terrain is reflected in the instruments. A mood of subdued desperation is created by gloomy piano chords and soft guitar plucks. Yvonne’s voice is ethereally lovely, evoking a tenderness that captivates the listener.

Yvonne gives hope that no matter how hard we try, we can’t bridge the gap between ourselves and others.

Edie Yvonne’s “Fade Into You” Lyrics:

I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take the breath that’s true
I look to you when I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth
You live your life, you go and shadow
You’ll come apart and you’ll go blind
Some kind of light into your darkness
Colors your eyes, what’s not there

You never know
To you, oh, I think it’s strange
You never knew a stranger’s light comes on
Slowly, a stranger’s heart was without home
You put your hands into your head
And then smiles cover your eyes

Fade into you
Never now and you, oh, I think
Strange you never knew
Oh
