I’m Tired Of Looking For Answers

Towards the end of last year I was given some vouchers at work for achieving all my goals, being nice to colleagues, toeing the management line, single-handedly saving the Company or something along those lines (you get the idea – I forget why I got them now if truth me told). Anyway I found myself in the rejuvenated vinyl section of HMV this morning and decided to take a punt on First Aid Kit, I’d heard good things and so grabbed a copy of “Stay Gold”.

It’s exquisite, an album of emotive tracks that only female singers can pull off (imho). With lyrics like those below, this is definitely one for listening to on a Sunday evening with a whisky in one hand as you wonder where the years have disappeared to…..-

I am in love and I am lost
But I’d rather be broken than empty
Oh I’d rather be shattered than hollow
Oh I’d rather be by your side
Now I can’t believe that it’s been five years
Since we both stood here looking out at this city
With minds so bold and thoughts so clear
We said
We are gonna get out of here
Run from all our fears
Follow what we once held dear
When will we get out of here
Shattered & Hollow
