Those strings, those lyrics, the quiet calm of this song until the swells of the violins chime in. Then it feels like when you hold your breath before after the first glimpse of your person.
I only recently heard this song late December (again, cousins who played music that I eventually heard the lyrics to). These lines are particularly sweet for me:
Maybe the night holds a little hope for us, dear
Maybe we might want to settle down, just be near
Stay together here
I don’t know why songs are this clear to me when most other things really are not. I do hope you listen to this song today and have someone to lay next to a bonfire (hopefully on a gorgeous beach somewhere) with and just enjoy the stars.
Listen to the song here and enjoy your weekend, and I wish a hopeful one, like this song.
