    it's that moment you realize the thing(s) you love will never be the same again. the understanding that moving forward is not always the easiest, but oft necessary. who would think hurting so much could force you into a disposition of hope? nothing is permanent, cherish the moments. never lose that vision. [2]

    I'd heard this song around, on TV and such, and though oh yes, that's a nice tune. Then I listened to it on its own and paid attention to the lyrics, and holy crap. It absolutely slays me. SO GOOD.

    That part from 2:06 to 2:14: literally makes me drown in a melancholic sadness, what a voice!

    This song has a little of Sigur Ros' style.
