Write Me Up

Official writing with some random thoughts

Wednesday is for poets and emotional laxatives. March 13, 2013

My best friend told me to take some emotional laxatives (in response to me saying that I am emotionally constipated because I have a hard time sharing/expressing my emotions to people verbally).

Well, I figured out that my emotional laxatives are music. The past week I have just been listening to music pretty much all the time except when I am at work. And surprisingly, not all sad, angry, break-up music either. One band I’ve been listening to a lot is Of Monsters and Men. I just love their sound and how their songs all seem to tell stories. I don’t understand all the stories, and I suspect that they have a lot of Icelandic mythology/cultural themes in there, especially in their music videos. But one song I really love is “Slow and Steady”. Seriously  gorgeous.

“Slow And Steady”

The lights go out, I am all alone
All the trees outside are buried in the snow
I spend my night dancing with my own shadow
And it holds me and it never lets me go[Chorus]
I move slow and steady
But I feel like a waterfall
Yeah, I move slow and steady
Past the ones that I used to knowMy dear old friend, take me for a spin
Two wolves in the dark, running in the wind
I’m letting go, but I’ve never felt better
Passing by all the monsters in my head

[Chorus]

And I’m never ready
‘Cause I know, I know, I know
That time won’t let me
Show what I want to show

[Chorus]

And I’m never ready
‘Cause I know, I know, I know
That time won’t let me
Show what I want to show

And here is the song.
And in case you are interested, their cool, strange music video for “Little Talks” that seriously confuses me but is beautiful anyway.
