this is my number one jam. for some reason this song has an odd habit of MAKING ME CRY LIKE A LITTLE GIRL (i might be technically a little girl) even though it is really uplifting and beautiful... the first time i saw a full-length video of it on youtube, i got tears in my eyes, for some reason.
anyway so i found a bootleg of this, recorded from some concert in glasgow. and i'm walking down the street to go to the bus stop listening to it and all of a sudden i realize that i am crying hysterically. it's not like there are those little happy tears in my eyes, but it's that i am legit weeping. like running down my cheeks and i can't really see and etc.
it was ridiculous.
when i hear this song i want to look up into the sky and say "hello!" i want to reach out and touch everything in the universe. i want to look in all the buildings, and imagine i live there.
this might be the most beautiful thing i have ever heard, i swear. with the keyboard scale in the chorus, the background vocals in the third verse, the way he flattens out the word "once," the guitar thing from 1:24 to 1:30, the bassline - ba ba BA, BA BA ba.
