It’s odd how you can randomly come across songs that instantly click with you. “Orange Sky” by Alexi Murdoch is one of them. After hearing it a few years ago as background music on a TV show and some Googling later, I’d bought the CD “Four Songs”. As per the title, it’s a CD of four of Murdoch’s songs which are melodic, acoustic and melancholy. On his first full CD “Time Without Consequence” Orange Sky appeared again, albeit a slightly faster version (to my ears), that seems to have the acoustic guitar more upfront than the earlier version. I’m still unsure which I like best.
The lyrics remain the same and delicately wash over me every time I listen to it.

“When I am alone
When I’ve thrown off the weight of this crazy stone
When I’ve lost all care for the things I own
That’s when I miss you, that’s when I miss you, that’s when I miss you
You who are my home
You who are my home
And here is what I know now
Here is what I know now
Goes like this..
In your love, my salvation lies
In your love, my salvation lies
In your love, my salvation lies”
