Love the sounds in this song, a YouTube find from earlier today that I put on repeat a few times. Something very different. Something new but nostalgic. There lots of picking on string instruments I can’t identify, and brushed percussion for a real soft muffled sound. Then, a little past halfway, you get some real natural strumming melodies that took just long enough to arrive, making you realize it wasn’t in the rest of the song despite the typical order of things…very inverted in that way.
Good message, too. It’s so simple to say things are complicated, but it’s not too tricky to drill past the surface, either. You either want something or you don’t, and if you’re not sure, it’s probably because you’re afraid of what the answer means.
“And there’s a shelf where you keep old stuff
A bottom step where we once made love
And there are words we don’t say enough,
Like, ‘Hey, what are you doing tonight?
We could share a bottle of wine if you like.’
But time takes it’s toll when we fight
Now we’re just two things that don’t move in the night
