This is, by far, the saddest song I’ve ever heard. This woman knows composition and orchestration and how to pull emotions from dark places, put them under her fingertips and turn them into a recognizable, gut-wrenching sound.
Her full album, Pianoscape, is absolutely one that’ll sound good for the first time and for decades. It is timeless, powerful, unpretentious and without pretense. It just is.
A song like this can either crush you into pieces or balance out the highs you are graced with. Today, as I sit overlooking my river Amstel, friend at my table working on his film, projects looking strong, health feeling top, friends full of joy, travel seeming endless and overall a wind blowing life through my life, a song like this feels just contrast enough to pull me down from the cloud to keep focused on day to day.
