music monday: like a star

Monday, December 20, 2010

This song might be a bit of an oldie but there's just something so dear about it that makes it timeless and always so poignant to me. I love Corinne Bailey Rae and this is my favorite song of hers, it comes to me on cold nights when it's raining (which we've been having a lot here in France as of late) and of course in the wake of an argument between me and my loved ones.

The lyrics resonate so deep as she writes of how love can be passionate and heart-breaking at the same time, yet will always find a way to shine on. I admire beautiful Corinne's talent and strength especially after all she's been through and I believe that she'll continue to write lovely, sincere songs from the heart.

You've got this look I can't describe,
You make me feel like I'm alive,
When everything else is au fait,
Without a doubt you're on my side,
Heaven has been away too long,
Can't find the words to write this song,
Oh, your love...

♥♥♥

This was the first song I heard of hers and has been my favorite since. She is quite beautiful. I don't know her story so I'm going to go read about it now. Lovely video, those paper birds hanging from the ceiling are great.
