i would just sing

thanks goes to beau, who shared this song with me.
mike hadreas' voice is haunting. the piano is gorgeous, reminiscent of the cinematic orchestra song i love so much. and although brief, this song stays with you. you'll find "dreem" on the bonus track version of the album, learning, on which the perfume genius, shares his learning with us. it's powerful.

in light of missing my man, the lyrics--as reported on one website--are apropos: "if you were here right now/i wouldn't have to write it down/i would just sing/and let you listen." (it's hard to make them out to see if they are correct, but i like the idea.)

i think i may like the live version best.
