Tuesday Tunes (20)

Today's post features the amazing artist I got to see live over the weekend, Matt Costa!

Matt Costa is a local singer/songwriter, and I'm a HUGE fan of his music.

My friend Claire and I caught him at a place right near my house a while back, and it was a really awesome show. I was blown away by how good he was live. This guy is majorly talented.

I love this picture because he looks pretty freaked out by the two of us. Claire and I tend to have that effect on people.

Luckily he was a good sport and still posed for a picture with us

And, of course, I got to see him yesterday at a really awesome little music festival on the back bay.


If you aren't familiar with Matt Costa's music, I can't recommend him enough. If you're looking for something with a chill, mellow vibe that's still emotional and complex, he's your guy.

I don't know if this is my favorite Matt Costa song, because, honestly, I love SO MANY of his songs in different ways. I think my favorite would really depend on my day and the mood. But this is the one that is the most meaningful to me, I think.

It's two lines that make this song special to me. "I'll be in your life again" and "all the stars point me to you." I love how certain he is that he is meant to be in this girl's life. He's already dancing around the sun, even when it hasn't happened yet. I love that.




Behind The Moon - Matt Costa


I would shine just like a million suns if you'd just love me baby
I'll be in your life again so baby, baby just say maybe

Now here I come
To dance around the sun
I've been oh so blue
Stuck behind the moon
Now let me in
Back where we begin
And let me hold you like the way
I used to do

All the stars point me to you and lately they just drive me crazy
The universe can be so cruel so baby, baby be my lady

Now here I come
To dance around the sun
I've been oh so blue
Stuck behind the moon
Now let me in
Back where we begin
And let me hold you like the way
I used to do

I would shine just like a million suns if you'd just love me baby
I'll be in your life again so baby, baby just say maybe

Now here I come
To dance around the sun
I've been oh so blue
Stuck behind the moon
Now let me in
Back where we begin
And let me hold you like the way

Now let me hold you like the way...
I used to do
