Big Picture

11 Aug

 

Some songs haunt me beautifully.

This one, by the English band London Grammar, is one of them. It is ethereal and yet raw. It touches me deeply.

And it is not a one-off. Their music has an extraordinary elegaic quality, owing much to Hannah Reid’s gorgeous voice, but also to the compostion, creativity and talent of the other two members.

This song, off their album ‘Truth is a Beautiful Thing’, released last year, has the power to make me sigh deeply and remember, sadly, so many things that have happened, and some that have not.

This has been another of my ‘songs I like but you might not know’ series of blog posts.

Big Picture

Love, what did you do to me?
My only hope is to let life stretch out before me
And break me on this lonely road
I’m made of many things, but I’m not what you are made of
.
Only now do I see the big picture
But I swear that these scars are fine
Only you could’ve hurt me in this perfect way tonight
I might be blind, but you’ve told me the difference
Between mistakes and what you just meant for me
.
Don’t say you ever loved me
Don’t say you ever cared
My darkest friend was
.
Have you forgotten all the lies you left there so fresh
Turning old in the air
And now, you have no weapons
You can try to get close to those I love
Do you really think they don’t know what you’re made of
.
Only now do I see the big picture
But I swear that these scars are fine
Only you could’ve hurt me in this perfect way tonight
I might be blind but you’ve told me the difference
Between mistakes and what you just meant for me
.
Someone say you ever loved me
Don’t say you ever cared
My darkest friend was
.
