I checked Dido’s website today just to make sure she was actually human. If I didn’t know better I would have guessed that an angel had fallen from heaven, signed with a record label, and began singing. The only word I can find for her voice is angelic. It doesn’t hurt that her lyrics in “White Flag” hit so close to home. I just recently went down with one of those ships.
Maybe this is a little bit like what Ulyssess had to endure when passing by the Sirens. I would probably have been tempted to turn around, too. I now add Dido to the extremely short list of amazing female vocalists like Enya and Elizabeth Fraser.
I know you think that I shouldn’t still love you, Or tell you that. But if I didn’t say it, well I’d still have felt it. Where’s the sense in that? I promise I’m not trying to make your life harder, or return to where we were. I know I left too much mess and destruction to come back again. And I caused nothing but trouble. I understand if you can’t talk to me again. And if you live by the rules of “it’s over” then I’m sure that that makes sense. And when we meet which I’m sure we will. All that was there will be there still. I’ll let it pass and hold my tongue and you will think that I’ve moved on….
I’m in love and always will be.
