Done just because.
Sometimes pop songs, despite their ephemeral nature, can really speak to me. This song, a love letter to writing letters to your love, grabbed both me and Melissa the first time we listened to it. Maybe it's just our generation's tendency to navel gaze, but lines like:
"So I never wrote a letter
I never took my true heart I never wrote it down
So when the lights cut out
I was left standing in the wilderness downtown"
"It seems strange to think
How we used to wait for letters to arrive
But what's stranger still
Is how something so small can keep you alive"
seem designed to invoke emotions in us that we forgot existed. Especially since we both used to be big time letter-writers.
The first song that Melissa and I danced to at our wedding. A love song from Mr Cohen that is without irony or cynicism seems pretty specially.
