the beautiful daughter


okay, it’s not every day you rediscovered why you love a certain genre of music. and tonight, i listened to daughter with a heightened sense of appreciation and oh oh oh. i can imagine why sailors would sail to their death when they heard the sirens sing. there’s something about the female voice that cuts through all the walls and pull at our heart strings like nothing else. it’s hard to believe that they haven’t even release their first album yet. i think the last time i was this excited about a band was sigur ros and that was over 10 years ago. i can finally move on from my jonsi crush. elena will be the next crush for a while. she will be easily be in my top 5 favorite female voices. what an crazy combination of gorgeousness. she’s like a mother’s sweet voice that smothers any fear and caresses love into blossom. and oh, the lyrics. nothing short of poetic magic.

“Landfill”

Throw me in a landfill
Don’t think about the consequences
Throw me in the dirt pit
Don’t think about the choices that you make
Throw me in the water
Don’t think about the splash I will create
Leave me at the alter
Knowing all the things you just escaped

Push me out to sea
On a little boat that you made
Out of the evergreen that you helped your father cut away
Leave me on the tracks
To wait until the morning train arrives
Don’t you dare look back
Walk away
Catch up with the sunrise

Cos’ this is torturous electricity
Between both of us and this is
Dangerous cos’ I want you so much
But I hate your guts
I hate you

So leave me in the cold
Wait until the snow covers me up
So I cannot move
So I’m embedded in the frost
Leave me in the rain
Wait until my clothes cling to my frame
Wipe away your tear stains
Thought you said you didn’t feel pain

Well this is torturous electricity
Between both of us and this is
Dangerous, cos’ I want you so much
But I hate your guts. I want you so much
But I hate your guts.
Well this is torturous
Electricity between both of us
And this is dangerous cos’ I want you so much
But I hate your guts
I want you so much but I hate your guts

“Love”

I can’t forget it,
Though I’ve tried
I know you’ll regret, love
You told me so many times

But, I still wonder
Why…
You left with her
& left me beind

Take your hands off him
Cause he’s the only one that I have ever loved
Please don’t find her skin
When you turn the lights out

I can’t erase it
From my mind
I just replay it, love
I think of all of the time

But I don’t want to imagine
Words you spoke to her that night
Make your bodies look like porcelain
You both knew I’d be bleeding inside

Did she make your heart beat faster than I could?
Did she give you what you hoped for?
On nights so loveless, love,
I hope it made you feel good
Knowing how much I adored you

Did she make your heart beat faster than I could?
Did she give you what you hoped for?
On nights so loveless, love,
I hope it made you feel good
Knowing how much I adored you

You’re making me sick, love
