"My Beating Heart" opens with a sweeping keyboard and simple guitar strum, and builds like the new relationship she is describing. She talks about when they first met and how she feels, wondering if there really is a magic to them together.
It's like every little part of me
is connected to all of you
What do i do with all this emotion
What do i do with my beating heart
I don't know where all this will end
But i know where I want it to start
There's a happy feel with consistent banjo undertones, and a beat that makes you bounce in your seat if you don't get up and dance.
After the first chorus, the second verse strips away the instrumentation and puts her clear voice against a simple guitar, stating that people can get hurt when they fall in love. Then the next line brings out that happy feel again of the drum beats when she says she knows she'd regret not giving it a try.
Sarah Louise sounds like a trained singer with clear consonants, and no indication of an accent. She adds three part harmony on the end of the bridge, complete with a beautiful high note to grab attention to the lyric, then launches back in to a subtle version of the chorus before the banjo and drums return for a repeated chorus. She adds new back-group vocals to the last chorus, then slows the tempo at the end to remind us that she knows where she wants it to start. It's a perfect ending for a song about beginning.
