Pretty Voice :: Cloud Cult

I know we've had quite a bit about Cloud Cult on here lately, but I really wanted to share this song with you all. I saw them perform it at Rock the Garden on Saturday, and I absolutely got chills and started crying a little bit. They are very emotional performers, and they really wrench the emotions out of tender people like me.

What I think about with this song is all the people I have abandoned in my life. That might sound overly dramatic, but I can think of several people that I loved loved loved and then for one reason or another, I turned my back on them and refused to communicate with them any more. I'm thinking friends friends friends exes etc. I might seem like a very open and friendly person, but I am TERRIBLE when it comes to holding grudges. For whatever reason, it is extremely hard for me to forgive people and near impossible for me to forget when I feel like I've been wronged. It really is a terrible thing, because it keeps me from being the self-actualized, enlightened person that I'd like to be.

Sometimes I dream about a day when I could put aside all of my anger and then bring all those people back into my life. I would hug them and hold them and ask them how they have been and ask them what their lives have been like. Then I would apologize for taking myself away from them and everything would be ok.


A scene begins
With our next melody
Sung by a bashful bird
Humming a violet sky
There are no words
But there is understanding
It's been so long
Since I've heard that pretty voice

Raise up our lights
And enter hero girl
She makes me calm
Yeah she makes me calm
When she hears a song
And she starts singing
It's been so long
Since I've heard that pretty voice

Strike up the band
Here comes the storyline
Of the usual struggle
Between fear and love
This is the lifelong song
We're all singing
It's been so long
Since I've heard that pretty voice

Now it begins
I miss your hollering
But you're so sure
Such a bashful bird
Here's a song
But no one's singing
It's been so long
Since I've heard your pretty voice
