Seattle singer-songwriter Alice Sandahl breaks my heart in this video. Her face, her voice, the beautifully shot video, and the stunning poetry of the song.
This is from her website, and it’s true:
ALICE sings of dark things & bright things, lost things & fast things. Your heart, listening, will beat better.
And these lines from the song:
did you get it when I sent it,
My three line lengthy message?
Did you get it in a rhythm of a five seven and five?
I meant it when I said it,
This clicking of my temples
The breaks are all for you.
Put down your Facebook and Twitter and just watch this song for 4 minutes and 34 seconds.
