Tune of the Week

Artist: Ben Howard


Album: Every Kingdom

Tune: Old Pine


Lyrics:

Hot sand on toes, cold sand in sleeping bags, 
I've come to know that memories
Were the best things you ever had
The summer shone beat down on bony backs
So far from home where the ocean stood 
Down dust and pine cone tracks

We slept like dogs down by the fire side
Awoke to the fog where all around us 
The bloom of summertime

We stood
Steady as the stars in the woods
So happy-hearted
And the warmth rang true inside these bones
As the old pine fell we sang
Just to bless the morning.

Hot sand on toes, cold sand in sleeping bags, 
I've come to know the friends around you
Are all you'll always have
Smoke in my lungs, or the echoed stone 
Careless and young, free as the birds that fly
With weightless souls now.

We stood
Steady as the stars in the woods
So happy-hearted
And the warmth rang true inside these bones
We stood
Steady as the stars in the woods
So happy-hearted
And the warmth rang true inside these bones
As the old pine fell we sang
Just to bless the morning.

We grow, grow, steady as the morning
We grow, grow, older still
We grow, grow, happy as a new dawn
We grow, grow, older still
We grow, grow, steady as the flowers
We grow, grow, older still
We grow, grow, happy as a new dawn
We grow, grow, older still

Why?

It's the lyrical imagery that gets me with this one, making it so perfect for warm summer days and cool summer nights ("hot sand in toes, cold sand in sleeping bags") I can't wait to listen to this song playing along side a cool and calm summer night roasting marshmallows in the middle of the woods with a few good friends. This one is definitely a keeper. He also does a cover of Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen.. which is interesting and worth checking out.

Thanks for reading! Enjoy -Bittybitzzzz <3
