My Song Recommendations

A song recommendation every day (be warned, they will probably all be weird folky songs that no one will have heard of or want to bother with.) Hozier, Sara Bareilles, Hudson Taylor, Passenger, Ben Howard, Bear's Den, Vance Joy will all probably be featured quite heavily.

Basically this is just my response to how much I love certain songs and writers at the moment and how I listen to something and get that "weird evangelical zeal, and become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans [hear it]".

Enjoy!

20. Day 19 - Red Eye

 

Red Eye by Vance Joy:

She don't like small places
Give her highways and byways
And don't get stuck in her head
And it's been so long
And I will read into everything you don't say
All of your silent ways

I'm a dog lying down on a warm bit of pavement
Checking this collar you see what the name is
Think that it's worth it?
Well, I hope that you're right
You're falling asleep on the red eye tonight

And you know that you're looking well
Won't you come through my door asking "How was your day?"
Well you know that I'm still a dog
And I'm trusting my nose
Will it show me the way?

I'm glad that you're still here
Won't you hold up a candle?
I'm stumbling in the dark
And when I needed hope
I remind myself that at least I got one thing right
It will always be right

I'm a dog lying down on a warm bit of pavement
Checking this collar you see what the name is
Think that it's worth it?
Well, I hope that you're right
You're falling asleep on the red eye tonight

And you know that you're looking well
Won't you come through my door asking "How was your day?"
Well you know that I'm still a dog
And I'm trusting my nose
Will it show me the way?

Won't you get out while you can?
Won't you cover your eyes
If you're tired of seeing?
Won't you get out while you can?
Try saving yourself

Can we talk in the morning?
Oh, baby it's late
Can we talk in the morning?
Oh, baby it's late
Can we talk in the morning?
Tell me when, tell me when
Oh, baby it's late
Can we talk in the morning?
Tell me when, tell me when
Oh, baby it's late, baby it's late

 

I was walking to school listening to this yesterday and it gave me chills. I love the whole album but this song really stands out when you just listen to it in the background without paying much attention.

This is what he had to say about it: “You put two lovers in a song, separate them, and you’ve got three minutes to reunite them... I suppose it’s a story that has been told and re-told in different forms. It’s reliable.”

This song is taken from his album 'Dream Your Life Away' and I hope you enjoy today's recommendation!
