weird love

An intimate song from Cayley Thomas that is surprisingly poignant. Surprising because the subject matter is mundane (or is it?) — two people who stay together years after the romantic spark has flickered out. In Thomas’ sensitive hands the song transcends the everyday (and after all this is a very common situation) and becomes a treatise on the nature of love and relationships. There is nothing simple about how a person gets to the position of saying, “I’d rather be one room away/than to give up on you”.
