Song of the week 47 (The Lone Bellow – Two sides of lonely)

Maybe a little too mellow (bellow) for me; I however do like this song.  I like how it builds up:
You first see the main singer walking in, and you hear the crunching of the snow below his (and their feet – when the others join in) and as he starts at a distance, the singing itself… also sounds far away…

Then when the 3 of them, enter the church, I love the echo of the singing in the building.
A very unusual and authentic video:

Its a cloudy day here today. So maybe the video is apt for the mood this weather carries:

“Two Sides Of Lonely”

I have one chance to tell you I was worth it
As we stood between the graves in our town
And the dead folks sang their forgotten songs
As I watched your eyes stare at the ground

On the one hand, you’re hoping I’m lying
On the other, you hope I’m a fool
And the wind blew all the leaves around
As you watched all our dreaming come true

Two sides of lonely
One is hot
One is duty

Two sides of lonely
One’s in the grave
And the other should be

We were alone together in Brooklyn
And the midnight snow fell in the park
And the cold wind crashed through the trees above us
As we watched the frost freeze our dead hearts

Two sides of lonely
One is hot
One is duty

Two sides of lonely
One’s in the grave
And the other should be

And the dead folks they hum
All the songs that you sung
In the grave you dug yourself
When we were young

And the dead folks they sway
Back and forth to the drum

Two sides of lonely
Laid to rest in their arms

You rock back and forth as the seasons
Change just like your mind in the dark
And the nights, you sleep and dream of me
And the love you let die.
