After singing the first few notes of the song, Demi got emotional and had to stop to shed a tear before she proceeded with the rest of the tune. The track, entitled "Anyone," as director Greta Gerwig's introduction suggests, was written before the artist OD-ed. The heartbreaking lyrics definitely got to everyone in the room, and to audiences at home.
The song offers a look into Demi's vulnerable state during those troubled times, as she sang, "I tried to talk to my piano/ I tried to talk to my guitar/ talked to my imagination/ confided into alcohol/ I tried and tried and tried some more/ told secrets 'til my voice was sore/ tired of empty conversation/ 'cause no one hears me anymore."
"Anyone" sounds like the Tell Me You Love Me songstress's never-before-heard cry for help, but her powerful performance shows that she's ready to let people in and have everyone listen to her.
