Karma’s dedication to her father is done with simplicity and beauty, which makes this single quite different from all of her other songs. The vocals are warm and smooth while her powerful lyricism is relatable and mesmerizing as she calls out, “I hope you’re up there watching over me/ Can you see all that I can’t see/ I hope you’re feeling really proud of me/ For all I’ve done and turned out to be.”
The music video for “Makin’ Things Up As I Go” shows a silly side to Parsons and his team of musicians. In one scene, he plays a chef while in another he’s a contestant on Jeopardy! It’s difficult to know what will come next as he surprises viewers with exciting, funny skits that literally shows how he’s making it up as he goes through life.
The scenes gave a beautiful complement to the lyrics where he hopes he doesn’t fall in love with the woman sitting nearby. Yet, the only time the music video is in color is when he’s speaking with her and slowly falling in love. It’s romantic regardless of how the story initially began.
