Depth over distance was all I asked of you
And everybody round here's acting like a stone
Still there's things I'd do, darling, I'd go blind for you
If you let go sometimes, let it go sometimes, let it go
Just let it go sometimes
I've been listening to a lot of Ben Howard lately, and I never get tired (and never fail to be affected emotionally) by Depth Over Distance.
The other day I was sitting here, working on images at the computer, when Grooveshark played this song. I found myself opening up Notepad to write this:
This song is like swimming up through the water, towards the light of
the sun that breaks
like tiny jewels on the surface. This song is like watching the very tops of the trees dance in
a summer wind. It's like finding a path through the woods when you've been lost for years. It's like
the feel of a hand slipping into your own, fingers intertwining.
And here's a live version... because it's pretty spectacular what that man can do with a guitar and that voice of his.
