A random, eclectic mix of thoughts, feelings, observations, and experiences – LIFE

You know, there are songs that we hear, and we immediately FEEL them? Like, deep deep, way down. It’s the craziest thing. A song… The music… The lyrics… Can take us to a place. Make us feel something. It could past, present, or imagined. That’s the power is music. In some way, it’s like therapy. No. It is therapy. I’ve been thinking about song that have that kind of effect on me lately. The Blower’s Daughter is one of them. Two versions of the song do it. I’m sharing both.

And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time
And so it is
The shorter story
No love, no glory
No hero in her skies

I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes…

And so it is
Just like you said it should be
We’ll both forget the breeze
Most of the time
And so it is
The colder water
The blower’s daughter
The pupil in denial

I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes…

Did I say that I loathe you?
Did I say that I want to
Leave it all behind?

I can’t take my mind off you
I can’t take my mind off you…
I can’t take my mind off you
I can’t take my mind off you
I can’t take my mind off you
I can’t take my mind…
My mind…my mind…
‘Til I find somebody new

 

Are there songs that you feel? Songs that make you feel an emotion, or take you to another moment in time? What songs have that effect on you?
