This became one of my most favorite songs the very first time I listened to it — which was approximately 4 hours ago. I since have tweeted it, posted to facebook, tumblr, IMed friends directly, and now about to share here as well. I haven’t been this excited about a song in a while (since Bon Iver maybe) and I can’t wait to check out the entire album which will be officially released August 19. Track is Somebody I Used to Know ft Kimbra on the album Making Mirrors.
Lyrics are simple, yet something I think almost all of us can relate to.
Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember
You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end
