I remember hearing an advert for Damien Rice’s CD “O” on TV and instantly fell for it. I think snippets of 2 songs were played – “Delicate” and “The Blower’s Daughter”
The Blower’s Daughter holds special meaning…

“And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time
And so it is
The shorter story
No love, no glory
No hero in her sky

I can’t take my eyes off of you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off of you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off you”

I’ve been listening to the most recent Counting Crows “Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings” CD a lot lately. It’s certainly a bit of a grower, as on first listen nothing really grabbed me. Adam Duritz has always been able to write good lyrics. This one from “Sundays”.

“Give me a kiss
I think it feels like love
Give me a kiss
I think it feels like sunshine
C’mon baby, light me up
I wanna look into your eyes until I go blind and…

You think that you can do without me
I can’t do anything at all
You think that you can do without me
But I don’t believe in Sundays
And I don’t believe in anything at all”

I particularly like the lines about remembering… I’m guilty of that.

“Try to remember what you might forget
I try to remember everything
Try to remember so you don’t disappear
Try to remember so you don’t fade away”
