Things I saw/heard today (“I got words for this and the way it fits: It’s all about the light and the sound around it.”)

I tripped across Emily Wells (via somerequired)

The music is beautiful and unique and her husky voice contains just the right ache and elan for perfect accompaniment.

The lyrics are great too:

Fair thee well and the requiem mix
I got a loan shark and a quick fix,
For those I left behind,
In a suitcase of fire flies,
Find ya, I wanna treat you right,
Never leave you beggin and cryin.
Coming down the mountain in a wet carriage,
Full speed like a spent marriage.
I got more than enough to keep me whole.
For once I’m not slightly out of control.
Got crazy dreams when it breaks morning,
Everyday, a requiem.
These morning dreams are just like memories:
Late night, starring through the trees.
I got words for this and the way it fits:
It’s all about the light and the sound around it.
Fair thee well and the requiem mix I
Got a feather bed and a couple of tricks,
For those I left behind.
