DAVID GRAY



Dear Readers:
Apologies for slacking on the blogging front.
I promise to post tomorrow. Tonight, I leave you with "This Year's Love" by David Gray. Until recently, I'd forgotten how fantastic this Brit singer-songwriter is and now, I just can't stop listening to him.
Might he be what the Arctic Monkeys were for me over the past couple of months?
Maybe.
Maybe.

"This Year's Love"

This years love had better last
Heaven knows it's high time
And I've been waiting on my own too long
But when you hold me like you do
It feels so right
I start to forget
How my heart gets torn
When that hurt gets thrown
Feeling like you can't go on

Turning circles when time again
It cuts like a knife oh yeah
If you love me got to know for sure
Cos it takes something more this time
Than sweet sweet lies
Before I open up my arms and fall
Losing all control
Every dream inside my soul
And when you kiss me
On that midnight street
Sweep me off my feet
Singing ain't this life so sweet

This years love had better last
This years love had better last

So whose to worry
If our hearts get torn
When that hurt gets thrown
Don't you know this life goes on
And won't you kiss me
On that midnight street
Sweep me off my feet
Singing ain't this life so sweet

This years love had better last
This years love had better last
This years love had better last
This years love had better last

Life in slow motion somehow it don’t feel real
Life in slow motion somehow it don’t feel real
Life in slow motion somehow it don’t feel real
Snowflakes are falling I'll catch them in my hands
Snowflakes are falling I'll catch them in my hands
Snowflakes are falling now you’re my long lost friend

There's something very surreal about his lyrics. They capture that deep-rooted memory you're never really sure you should be digging up or not...but which his words bring out so easily. And occasionally while listening to his songs, you almost get the sensation he's singing about some future memory you know you'll be nostalgic about years from now.
