the orchids by califone
for most of the songs i post on this blog i tend to want to blather: "this song is so beautiful, you owe it to yourself to listen to it!". but that is not the case for all of the songs i post.
with that being said, "the orchids" is definitely one of those songs. it makes me want to sit and soak in its beauty. it doesn't make me want to sing along, it makes me want to stop.
i forget any worries. i'm immediately sucked in. the music and the melody are beautiful. then i listen to the lyrics. i knew that i was going to post this song two days ago. today i had a conversation about "the truth" and this song seems to obviously be about that. even more beautiful.
i often think that words, no matter how eloquently written (and i do not even begin to believe i would be able to write anything like that), will ever begin to express how wonderful i think these songs are and how they make me feel. i'm tempted to simply post the songs, not say shit, then let you listen and form your own opinions without me tainting them.
oops, too late.
