breathe again  
Last year sometime, I discovered Little People, which is this great downtempo electronic artist who immediately wound up on my list of go-to music to suit just about any mood.

Mostly, his tracks don't have lyrics, but Breathe Again is one that does. Although the melancholy content of the lyrics isn't really where my head or heart is today, I love the depth of feeling in the vocals. Why is it that melancholy is a feeling that dives so deep? I enjoy it even when I'm happy or content.

When I open my eyes in the morning light
I catch my breath, feel a little frightened.
Watch your face peacefully sleeping
Heartbreak, I know there's no keeping you.

Tell me now that there's nothing more
Just do it now so that I can breathe again
I know somehow you're just too beautiful
I know now that you're gonna be leaving

Just too beautiful
Too beautiful for me

Not long now before it's time to go
Gotta be strong somehow
Don't wanna let it show

But my heart is aching
My heart is breaking

Tell me now that there's nothing more
Do it now so that I can breathe again
I know somehow you're just too beautiful
I know now that you're gonna be leaving

Beautiful
Too beautiful for me

Too beautiful for me
 
 
I'm feeling: goodgood
