Some songs catch you unawares
I was driving back from work this morning and heard this one
Perhaps, it was the words,
Perhaps it was the beauty of the voice,
Perhaps it was the fact I was over tired,
The whole thing made me tear up

  1. My hearing isn't good enough to make out the words - but the voice alone is beautiful enough to bring tears. Then I looked up the lyrics - what a combo, especially on no sleep and dealing with the things you have on your plate. xx

  2. I didn't know who sang this song but it goes with a tea advert I think and usually I hate adverts but this one is lovely.
    Its quite beautiful and such a natural voice.
    I can understand how it moved you.

  5. I think the voice helps with that feeling.
    I've heard that song a thousand times. Somehow her rendition brings it up a notch or two.

  8. I had difficulty understanding some of the lyrics, but her voice has a haunting quality to it. It wasn't just you, John. It's her voice, and the sincerity she projects.
