Tuesday Tunes (17)

Today is a good day for me, music-wise. The new Bon Iver album is out today and so is the new Matt Nathanson! Yay new music!

I've already talked about a Bon Iver song on here, so I figured I could share a Matt Nathanson song that I love.

This video starts with Angel and then moves into I Saw. I love both of these songs, but I Saw is one of my Very Special Songs...the ones that really make me Feel Feelings.

These lyrics! Oh, these lyrics! They kill me!

I'll forget about you long enough to forget why I need to. 

Gah! Doesn't that just say...everything? Or is that just me?

I love these words. I love this song. Oh, the Feelings. I need to stop now before I go nuts.



I Saw - Matt Nathanson

And it's amazing
The look in your eyes
Like you could save me
But you won't even try
And then you tell me again
How everything will be alright

And if I told you
That I'm sorry
Would you tell me that you were wrong
Or would you hold me down forever
If I came to your for answers

And I saw
Pictures in my head
And I swear I saw you opening up, again

And I'm surrounded
You spill
All alive and brand new
And I'll forget about you long enough
To forget why I need to

And I saw
Pictures in my head
And I swear I saw you opening up again
Cause I would be heavenly if
Baby you'd just rescue me now

The days are
Drifting away from me
I still wake up
Burning through everything now

And I saw
Pictures in my head
And I swear I saw you opening up again
I would be heavenly if
Baby you'd just rescue me now
Pictures in my head
I saw you opening up again
Cause I would be heavenly if
Baby you'd just rescue me now

  2. I heart Matt Nathanson. He performed at the coffee shop on my college campus years ago and I've been hooked ever since. I think my favorite of his is "Come on Get Higher, " but I enjoy these as well. :)
