[cover] girlyman’s “shape i found you in”;
this song came by special request. a very good friend of mine, who has known me since my freshman year of high school, introduced me to the original version of this about a year or so ago.
i always thought that it such a beautiful and yet, somewhat poignant song, especially given the subject matter.
often, we hear talk about how love is something that startles you out of silence; like fireworks lighting up the night sky. it takes you by surprise and sweeps you along, filling your vision with all that brilliant, bright light.
but there are rare times that it comes a different way: tentative and hesitant in the deep dark; careful, not out of fear for you, but for itself. because love can do that, creep inside of you and find a place before you are even aware of it.
