Have you heard of Birdtalker? Nashville group that I cannot get enough of these days. They record themselves doing one-shot performances and this one is my favorite so far because of their pure sound and the lyrics. Notice the guy with long hair as he sings; typically he is the lead singer but here he watches the woman closely and supports her completely. A great reminder that stepping back and letting someone lead can create such beauty.
The song is called Want, and first of all they list things that they do not want, and then claim what they desire. In order to know what you want, you must also be able to recognize what you do not.
Some of the lyrics:
Don’t want to have feet of stone
Don’t want to have a daggered tongue
Don’t want to have a heavy mind
I want to have eyes of love.
