PostSubject: "Love is a Place" - Metric   Mon Nov 29, 2010 11:53 pm

These are the lyrics to the short song "Love is a Place" by Metric, which I love! <3 The lyrics are quite poetic and very beautiful. The language in it is wonderful.

There’s spring in the air.
They’re sweeping the streets.
Wind is a breeze.
The sun becomes her, he agrees.

What’s holding up her face?
Nothing but blue skies.
Passage ways
to windows
that don’t close.

Where do you live?
Love is a place.
Where are you from?
She says, ask yourself, ask anyone.
What’s holding up her face?
Nothing but blue skies.
Passage ways
the mind’s eye
contemplates.



See, it's very simple but at the same time the meaning of the song is not that obvious. I love Metric becuase Emily Haines always writes lyrics that are clearly open to your own interpretation.

If anyone is actually interested in hearing the song, you can play it at ...

Nyeh I think I need to be in a special mood to listen to anything concerning Emily Haines/Metric. I'm not saying I don't like her but if I'm trying to capture a certain mood some music can't be near me. Emily Haines fuels my melancholy art a lot of the time or when I need to draw something soft or surreal.

Doctor Blind from Emily Haines though is simply brilliant.

The Lack of Light
Hollow Sea
Poison Beaches
Limousines
Toothless Dentists
Cops That Kill

My baby’s got the lonesome lows
don’t quite go away overnight
doctor blind just prescribe the blue ones
if the dizzying highs
don’t subside overnight
doctor blind just prescribe the red ones

aaaaaahhhhhhhhh

hard to hold
cold to touch
fall to pieces
treat the rush in hindsight
with prime time talk
all your pain
will end here
let the doctor
soothe your brain, dear

My baby’s got the lonesome lows
don’t quite go away overnight
doctor blind just prescribe the blue ones
if the dizzying highs
don’t subside overnight
doctor blind just prescribe the red ones

aaaaaahhhhhhhhh

YES!! Doctor Blind was the first song I heard by Emily Haines and the Soft Skeleton, and yes it is brilliant! The first verse and the chorus are my favorite parts. Smile

"The Lack of Light
Hollow Sea
Poison Beaches
Limousines
Toothless Dentists
Cops That Kill"

LOVE IT. <3

I really don't listen to Emily Haines, but considering the lyrics it could be interesting to listen to.
