I am getting into anything that sounds like folk music. I think I was late in discovering this band FIRST AID KIT, but now I can’t get enough of their music.
I have picked this one because it fits with he theme, and although it was a just a bonus track on a really cool album, it exhibits the way these girls weave voice and instrument into a tapestry that it is easy to get lost in. Their lyrics are so absorbing. It’s enough for me on a Sunday to contemplate what the heck they mean.

There's some kind of freedom I am searching for Sometimes I think it'll turn up If I just run out the door But when I think of it I don't know what it could be If you find out would you be so kind? Please tell me Oh I've never seen the night sky burn so bright The mere vision Could turn you blind And I never knew It could happen like this But you never know till you see The day through Life's what you make it But it depends on where you start And this woman in front of me Says she'll meet my fate in her car So where are we all headed? And what was my plan? She has no idea but speaks of Some tall dark handsome man Oh I've never seen the night sky burn so bright The mere vision Could turn you blind And I never knew It could happen like this But you never know till you see The day through Now everything I touch Turns into some distant memory You'll pass me by But nobody seems to see I have no idea What I'm running towards
