Clairo “4EVER”

I discovered this song on Spotify on my way to work this morning and I was blown away. At first, I thought the singer must have been much older, so I was floored when I discovered that she’s only 21 (and maybe a few years younger when she wrote this song). To me that’s incredible and terrifying at the same time. As a mom of a young daughter, I’m absolutely terrified at the prospect of my little girl growing up and expressing this level of sensuality at such a young age!

Nevertheless, and because I know what it’s like to grow up fast, this is my current jam on replay.

See you in the morning, over coffee. We’ll talk…Oh…

Ruelle “Like you mean it”

I like to think that I don’t really find a song, instead a song finds me.

I was a stranger to myself
A flicker, a memory
I was a fragment, an empty shell
‘Til you got a hold of me

Stretch it over me
The sky of your reflection
It’s the wild I need tonight

Love me like you mean it
Hold me like the moon holds onto the tide
Love me like you mean it
Keep me ’cause your fire keeps me alive
Love me like you mean it

On a train somewhere in Italy
Your fingers laced with mine
I see the world racing next to me
But we’re frozen, lost in time

Stretch it over me
The miles of your affection
It’s the wild I need tonight

Love me like you mean it
Hold me like the moon holds onto the tide
Love me like you mean it
Keep me ’cause your fire keeps me alive

I’ll say it once
I’ll say it twice
You are the halo that covers the night
Love me like you mean it
