What’s your song of 2013? Mine is Daughter’s “Youth”

10 Dec

Halfway through the year, I already knew I found my song of 2013. From the first notes, the plucking of the guitar, hearing Elena Tonra’s voice, the drums suddenly soaring into the song, the beautiful but dark and pained lyrics, I knew that Daughter’s Youth perfectly encapsulated my journey in 2013.

But don’t take my word for it, listen to it (if you haven’t yet) and maybe you’ll understand why I can’t remove it from my playlist and why I keep talking about it and why I keep telling people to listen to it every chance I get.

Oh, and the rest of the album is utterly brilliant as well.

How about you? What’s your song of 2013?

 

 

Shadows settle on the place, that you left.
Our minds are troubled by the emptiness.
Destroy the middle, it’s a waste of time.
From the perfect start to the finish line.

And if you’re still breathing, you’re the lucky ones.
‘Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs.
Setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting names of the lovers that went wrong
The lovers that went wrong.

We are the reckless,
We are the wild youth
Chasing visions of our futures
One day we’ll reveal the truth
That one will die before he gets there.

And if you’re still bleeding, you’re the lucky ones.
‘Cause most of our feelings, they are dead and they are gone.
We’re setting fire to our insides for fun.
Collecting pictures from the flood that wrecked our home,
It was a flood that wrecked this…

… and you caused it…
… and you caused it…
… and you caused it…

Well I’ve lost it all, I’m just a silouhette,
A lifeless face that you’ll soon forget,
My eyes are damp from the words you left,
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest.
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest.

And if you’re in love, then you are the lucky one,
‘Cause most of us are bitter over someone.
Setting fire to our insides for fun,
To distract our hearts from ever missing them.
But I’m forever missing him.

And you caused it,
And you caused it,
And you caused it
