Damien Rice is one of my favorite singer songwriters of all time. I love his voice, I love his cadence, I love his lyrics. Sometimes overtly dark and sexual, sometimes a little more veiled. I was listening this morning to his older albums on shuffle and this song struck me. Probably because it's relevant to more than one relationship in my life. At parts I'm the singer and at parts I'm the person he sings to.
This is a video of a recording at KCRW. The sound is pretty great for a radio station recording, the video quality is pretty poor, but maybe that is appropriate. The DJ jumps in at the last bit to jarringly remind you this was live radio, but it's still a great recording. Lyrics below.
