Content

"Songs About You" is a country and country pop ballad with a duration of three minutes and twenty-five seconds. Its instrumentation consists primarily of guitar, while its lyrics tell the story of a girl who moves on from a dead-end relationship and informs the object of her affection that she is "through singing songs about you." The song's confessional nature has been compared to the work of American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, with Jesse Kinos-Goodin of CBC Music noting that Isablla "certainly has the diary-entry-as-song formula down."

Critical reception

Kayla Tinson at Canadian country music blog Top Country labelled "Songs About You" the highlight of the album, writing that it showcases "a side of Kira we've never seen" and that it is a "brilliantly" written song.

Music video

A lyric video for the song premiered November 11, 2012 through Isabella's Vevo channel in which the song's lyrics are stylized as diary entries.

The official music video for "Songs About You" was directed by Ben Knechtel and premiered exclusively through CMT on November 16, 2012. It was uploaded to her Vevo channel a week later, on November 23. Shot primarily in black-and-white, the video interleaves studio and concert footage of Isabella performing the song with a storyline involving Isabella's character catching her boyfriend cheating on her.
