The moment when someone falls out of love with you can be brutal. Like watching a huge building collapse in slow motion around you. Snow, rain without a sound was the first thought, the first phrase there was of this song. Silent beauty to beware of.
With "Affection" Black Sea Dahu release a single that is about more than it appears to be addressing on the surface.
For those of us who come from disfunctional homes, home means chaos and love is unreliable, unstable, dangerous, erratic, suffocating, unpredictable. We think relationship means trauma, so it's no wonder many of us from broken homes thrive on pain and destruction, we put ourselves through too much, we look for others who know and have experienced the same. We're drawn to them, because we're all looking to be understood.
Affection ist the third single from the upcoming album "I Am My Mother" to be released 25.02.22.
I turned myself inside out
You don’t even know
I put on the warpaint and calm the winds of your trauma closing in
Where do you end and where do you begin?
I laid my broken heart in your hands
I spend my time wandering in the fog
Trying to shake the thought
Oh everyone’s out to get you
Tread so hard to push me away
I’m reading into every word you say
I’m lost in your eyes
Come lay your broken hands between my thighs
Shiny sunday symmetries
They’re cracking my composure
Oh these wild roots wound around my knees make me fall over
Snow, rain without a sound
Are you falling out of love?
Give all my affection and nothing stays
Oh if I could I’d help you wake up back in the womb
Come take me out and let me hold your fear as you do mine
But it feels like all the time I am misreading the clouds, oooh
Oh come take me out and bring me anywhere but here and now
I’ve grown so used to everything going wrong
Don’t let me down
I know that I’m flawed for I find home in every broken one I pass
This album blew up in 2020, and I was a little late to it, but I've been incredibly impressed by its staying power. A wonderful example of a record becoming a sensation that also holds up as a wonderful artistic statement. Bridgers just impresses more and more. Bryce Cannatelli
