BREATHLESS

It is not a secret that we are music nuts in our house. Consistently, one of the few bands we can all agree on is Better than Ezra. Middle Monkey has dubbed them “the happiest band in the world.” This is funny to me because sometimes they sing about pain, unrequited love and the horrible things humans do but they capture so accurately the feelings attached to those things. They are amazing in concert and you should add that to your to-do list if they are ever in your area. Last night, tired as hell from 4 days of 2 hours of sleep a night, I cranked up the Ipod for a while and discovered how poetic and beautiful this song is. I don’t think I have ever listened to it the way I did last night and felt compelled to share…

“Breathless”

Here you are now
Fresh from your wars
Back from the edge of time
And all that you were,
Stripped to the bone
I thought you’d want to know

That when you feel the world is crashing
All around your feet
Come running headlong into my arms
Breathless
I’ll never judge you
I can only love you
Come now running headlong
Into my arms
Breathless

Lay down your guns
Too weak to run
Nothing can harm you here
Your precious heart
Broken and scarred
Somehow you made it through
I only ask that you won’t go again

When you feel the world is crashing
All around your feet
Come running headlong into my arms
Breathless
I’ll never judge you
I can only love you
Come now running headlong
Into my arms
Breathless

So glad to see you smiling
So good to hear your laugh
I think that you’ve found you even
Missed yourself
I’m only asking this because I think that
Truth be told
Oh, you’ll never go again
Again

When you feel the world is crashing
All around your feet
Come running headlong into my arms
Breathless
I’ll never judge you
I can only love you
Come now running headlong
Into my arms
Breathless
Breathless

Just beautiful…go here and check out “Breathless,” letting the words fall on your soul like rain.

For the same reason, I love Blue October (check out “Hate Me”) and the Burden Brothers (check out “Beautiful Night” and “Still”).
