Send Ringtones to Cell

Out across cities I see buildings burn into piles
And watch the world in wonder as mountains turn into tiles
And trees losing their leaves and faces becoming tired
I wish I could discover something that doesn't expire

    I like the "Acoustic" (2010) extended play where the songs aren't as overproduced and loud. I'm listening them now four years too late, when she doesn't need "saving" anymore. Time flies. Me and the undertow.... <3

    This an Savior are very easy to confuse for a new listener. I like both but almost instantly noticed that they have the same structure, same verse style, similar meaning, singing "River" over the last chorus just like singing "Save me" at the end of Savior... Perhaps it was intentional.

    I'm not a huge fan of 'The Listening' as an album in general, but this song is just perfection.

    i could listen to this on loop foreveeeeeeer. one of the best tracks on the listening. the loud synth/guitar sounds sooo delicious. i love the little robotic noise that comes in right before the choruses.
