there's just something simply wonderful about patty griffin's voice. she has the ability to make me stop whatever it is i am doing and listen. her voice is raw, passionate, sincere...basically i am in love with the way her voice makes me feel...regardless of whatever that emotion may be.
this song is legendary...it is probably even better than the scene in 'ghost' where 'unchained melody' comes on (i don't care if it's a het movie, that scene is still really amazingly beautiful)...at least in the fantasy of my mind, this song reaches those proportions...
in particular, it reminds me of what it feels like to have someone to love. specifically, what it's like to have someone that you'd like to lay around and cuddle with and listen to music all afternoon long...it's having that one someone that you are perfectly content with being in the same room and not having to say anything to know what the two of you feel for each other...when enough words to fill a million sociology textbook is expressed in a casual brushing of hands, or a glance across the room...
this song makes me want all of that. it makes me wanna dance around the room and be romantical. yes, i just said romantical. i'm an academic so i reserve the right to make up words.
anyway, this woman rocks my heartstrings. hopefully she will do the same for you.
word to your mother.
Oh Heavenly Day::Patty Griffin
All the clouds blew away
Got no trouble today
The smile on your face
I live only to see
It's enough for me baby
It's enough for me
Oh heavenly day
Tomorrow may rain with sorrow
Here's a little time we can borrow
Forget all our troubles in these moments so few
Oh we can right now the only thing that all that we really have to do
Is have ourselves a heavenly day
Lay here and watch the trees sway
Oh can't see no other way
Heavenly day heavenly day heavenly day
No one on my shoulder
Bringing me fears
Got no clouds up above me
Bringing me tears
Got nothing to tell you
I got nothing much to say
Only I'm glad to be here with you
On this heavenly heavenly heavenly heavenly heavenly day
Oh all the troubles gone away
Oh for awhile anyway
For awhile anyway
Oh heavenly day
