This is one song that I’ve just recently discovered (thanks to a friend of mine for introducing it to me). And I gotta say this… every time I listen to this song, seems like I’m falling in love with it more and more. It’s sweet and mellow, and lyrics aside, it really has a tune that lingers… and the melody is so raw and simple, but totally piercing. Gives me goosebumps every time I listen to it. Sara wrote it when she had her first real heartbreak so it’s essentially a sad song. Superb composing, in my opinion. And Sara’s voice and piano skills are awesome. Anyway, for those who haven’t heard it, check it out…
Something always brings me back to you.
It never takes too long.
No matter what I say or do,
I’ll still feel you here ’til the moment I’m gone.
You hold me without touch.
You keep me without chains.
I never wanted anything so much than to
Drown in your love and not feel your rain.
Set me free, leave me be.
I don’t want to fall another moment into your gravity.
Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I’m supposed to be.
But you’re on to me and all over me.
You loved me ’cause I’m fragile.
When I thought that I was strong.
But you touch me for a little while
And all my fragile strength is gone.
I live here on my knees as I try to make you see,
That you’re everything I think I need here on the ground.
But you’re neither friend nor foe though I can’t seem to let you go.
The one thing that I still know is that you’re keeping me down.
