music monday: almost lover

Monday, November 29, 2010

I've decided to re-share this 'music monday' in hopes of introducing more of you to one of my favorite artists, the lovely Alison Sudol of A Fine Frenzy. She has the most angelic red hair paired perfectly with a hauntingly beautiful voice. I have been deeply in love with this song since the first time I've heard it. The lyrics bring me back to the sleepless nights of heartbreaks gone by, falling in love with all the wrong boys. This song is the nostalgia of wounds that eventually heal and leave a bittersweet scar in its place.

We walked along a crowded street
You took my hand and danced with me in the shade
And when you left you kissed my lips
You told me you would never ever forget these images, no

Well, I'd never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?

So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do...

♥♥♥

The music sounds hauntingly beautiful. I feel like she is soul searching in this song. Beautiful. I feel like a big baby when i got a bit choked up. Also, I love the photos of her. I want to re-dye my hair red again.
