I love this song. According to itunes, it is my most-played song with 153 plays. Yes, I am one of those weird kind of people who listens to the same song continuously on repeat for hours. It used to drive my sister crazy. But I LOVE this song. Not only because it is musically amazing - the 3 against 2 counterpoint with the orchestra and the electric guitar in the second half of the song is almost Bach-like.
But also I love it because of the words, "sloooooooow it down".
And it reminds me of one of those times, one of those times that the present was so perfectly happy that I didn't want the days to end. The past didn't matter, the future seemed a distant blurr, and the present was pure joy.
I can think of three times in my life like that.
Now is not one of those times. But it will come again. That is the beauty of life's unthwarted progression - the hope.
