Song on repeat at the moment:
I am thinking it's a sign that the frecklesI've never understood the "freckles in our eyes" bit - do people have eye freckles? But ahhh..... what a song. Non-cynical, heart on sleeve, and yet perfectly balanced so that it doesn't tip over into mawkishness. And yes, it's not new, and I've had it in my playlist for AGES, but for some reason it still feels fresh.
In our eyes are mirror images and when
We kiss they're perfectly aligned
And I have to speculate that God himself
Did make us into corresponding shapes like
Puzzle pieces from the clay
True, it may seem like a stretch, but
It's thoughts like this that catch my troubled
Head when you're away when I am missing you to death
- The Postal Service, "Such Great Heights" (Available for download on the band's Sub Pop site)
If u watched enough chick flicks where the characters stares into one another's eyes, you'll notice...
randy - I will still vote for "Such Great Heights", but I can understand the love for Nothing Better.
ah tan - Really? None of my exes had freckles in their eyes. Or perhaps I was really not observant, which is an equally distinct possibility.
There's actually a fantasy book that borows this theme. The author calls it a 'dart' instead of a mote or a freckle, because it's in teh shape ofa dart.Can't think of the author, but the book is called 'Kushiel's Dart'
They're music fits my over-all day-to-day mood perfectly, this song especially.
By the way I do know someone with 'freckles' in their eyes, he has light blue eyes with little golden specks in them.
