With the start of a new school year and this wonderful blog, I feel that this song is appropriate.
I am certainly not perfect. I fight with my friends; I break up with boyfriends; i falsely lead people on. Yet, that does not bother me. Somehow, I feel that when I am alone and have time to process my thoughts and emotions, I become closer to the person that I want and am meant to become.
I love this song because it encompass so many emotions that I feel: restraint, bitterness, and frustration; yet underneath that storm of emotions is a calm, steady, unending love.
Although the song is originally by Bon Iver, who sings beautifully, I think Birdy does a wonderful job of bringing a feminity that I enjoy (since I am, ya know, a girl and all).
