Ane Brun: The Dancer

Not to overmistify certain feelings over others, but this is an amazingly beautiful song about true love. And there is even an old friend of mine, a jellyfish in the video!
When I hear a song like this, it makes me think why people live in shitty relationships, and how blessed people should feel when something is over, which has gone wrong. Truly it is sad and it hurts, but as Kelly Cutrone said people should aim to f*ck the world with their energy, and do everything at the highest level. When eating, eating a delicious food (even a toast with butter can be like this made of a great bread..), when talking with friends listening to them carefully, when making love doing it really with concentration to the detail and devotion, not just the ok-way. When living then LIVING, not just spending the days.

How a love should be, if not passionate as this song is. There can be of course various different relationships between people, but this song describes the feeling of LOVE so great. Someone comes and it happens, yes, it is not about doing the weekly shopping, or about paying the bills together, but what is life worth to live if not for moments like this when everything gets dizzy, because something so magical happens that it almost stops  your hearth. People who are lucky can have this feeling for weeks/months/years- the really talented ones for a lifetime with the person they found.

I think real love is about being soul mates, being so close to each others in hearth that it almost hurts. This song reflects this feeling so well, this mixture of friendship, white and black magic, creation and destruction. <3 Ane Brun. And she is from Stockholm :)! May be I can even go to one of her concerts. Better to say, I WILL.

One more thing: some psychologist said that a great piece of art shakes you up, and when you return something stays in you from it, which was not there before the encounter. In the case of this song in my op. you can  really feel this shaking up effect.

- Songwriter Polly Jean Harve
P.S. : Polly u are freaking awesome!!!!!

He came riding fast like a phoenix out of fire flames
He came dressed in black with a cross bearing my name
He came bathed in light and the splendor and glory
Can't believe what the Lord has finally sent me

He said, "Dance for me, fanciulla gentile"
He said, "Laugh awhile, I can make your heart feel"
He said, "Fly with me, touch the face of the true God
Cry with joy at the depth of my love"

'Cause I've prayed days, I've prayed nights
For the Lord just to send me home some sign
I've looked long, I've looked far
To bring peace to my black and empty heart

My love will stay till the river bed run dry
My love lasts long as the sunshine blue sky
I love him longer as each **** day goes
The man is gone and heaven only knows

'Cause I've cried days, I've cried nights
For the Lord just to send me home some sign
Is he near? Is he far?
Bring peace to my black and empty heart

So long day, so long night
Oh Lord, be near me tonight
Is he near? Is he far?
Bring peace to my black and empty heart
