Weather Systems by Andrew Bird
Quiet, quiet down she said
speaking to back of his head
on the edge of the bed
I can see your blood flow
I can see your cells grow
This is such an unique and moving song. It always fills me with a feelling of quiet bliss. That crying violin towards the end, blended by Birds’ vocals, takes you up next to the weather systems he sings about, and you let your mind float with the sound.
This song marked one little, unique and blissful moment in my life. Last year, it was also a saturday and the weather was exactly like today: a warm, grey clouded day. I had some time to kill, and I was at the top of a mount in my town, and there was no one there. So I lay down on the warm rocks, and the mp3 player started playing this song and, for about ten minutes in my life, there was just me, the warm rock where I was laying, the cloudy sky and this song. And the whole town was at my feet. Everytime I hear this song I am taken to that moment.
‘Cause I can see it all from here,
Now I can see
weather systems of the world
And everytime I see those rocks, from the town I am reminded of this song.
I was almost to choose another song for the W letter (there are a lot of possibilities), but then I realized it was a saturday, and the weather was exactly like that days’ weather. And then I also had to go to that mount today. So I got the signs.
