The Sweet Marriage of Music and Poetry

I wanted to share this song with all of you. This is so beautiful. I downloaded it on iTunes and it's too pretty not to share. This video is sort of the behind the scenes of the song.

Here is a link to the official music video. I can't embed it here on my blog, but please go watch it-it's charming and artsy in its own way. I promise you will be delighted by it.

Here are the lyrics:

Winter Song

by Sarah Bareilles & Ingrid Michaleson

bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum
bum bum bum bum bum bum
bum bum bum bum bum bum

This is my winter song to you.
The storm is coming soon,
it rolls in from the sea

My voice; a beacon in the night.
My words will be your light,
to carry you to me.

Is love alive?
Is love alive?
Is love alive?

They say that things just cannot grow
beneath the winter snow,
or so I have been told.

They say were buried far,
just like a distant star
I simply cannot hold.

Is love alive?
Is love alive?
Is love alive?

This is my winter song.
December never felt so wrong,
'cause you're not where you belong;
inside my arms.

bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum
bum bum bum bum bum bum
bum bum bum bum bum bum

I still believe in summer days.
The seasons always change
and life will find a way.

I'll be your harvester of light
and send it out tonight
so we can start again.

Is love alive?
Is love alive?
Is love alive?

This is my winter song.
December never felt so wrong,
'cause you're not where you belong;
inside my arms.

This is my winter song to you.
The storm is coming soon
it rolls in from the sea.

My love a beacon in the night.
My words will be your light
to carry you to me.

Is love alive?

This is my new favourite song. It makes me want to light candles and take a moment out of the craziness of the holidays. It's very soothing. I hope you enjoy it too.
