Peaceful. I picture a swing gently swaying in the breeze in someone’s backyard, fall leaves raining down.
Life. Living. Simplicity. The music and words, which I couldn’t actually understand, seem to have a sense of repetition and existence. One line I believe sang of getting on the ‘slow train.’
The music and instruments used in this song create a sense of peace. It doesn’t sound particularly complex, adding to the sense of the simplicity of life.
Life goes on, but this song doesn’t seem to be about moving past death or sorrow. It just is, kind of like life. We can take life from the perspective of thinking it will span forever and we needn’t worry about anything, or that it’s over too soon and we have to cram something into every moment of every day. We can view the world as a harsh and despairing place, or with such rosy glasses that the world becomes hot pink. This song’s music and ‘feel’ took me towards the ‘just go with it’ sort of view. The world is, so enjoy it and love it, rejoice in it and feel sorrow with it, don’t worry, just live. The flow of life, we can’t change it, but we can feel and breath and experience it.
