10 Day Challenge
This song has been with me for a long time.
It is incredibly simple, voice, piano and the swish of drum brushes. So sad and despairing and yet so beautiful. I get tears in my eyes from the beauty of the song, the voice, the sadness of the theme, but also from knowing that I will never be able to create something that beautiful.
There is a part of this track that I love dearly. Right at the start, she sings ‘I love you………’ and pauses. It’s that pause that I love, sounds odd but it’s like the intake of breath, the steeling of the nerves, a short moment of indecision before you take a leap of faith and pour out your soul to the one you love knowing that your words may not make any difference but also knowing they have to be said.
An absolute joy.
