Of Monsters And Men- I Of The Storm

It was a very strange day.

I was left to my own devices and it began perfectly with a hearty 16 mile bike ride all around the islands. Then the storm rolled in as I showered and planned to beach it. Thunder and lightening warmed my afternoon with my own beautiful patio viewing and a really great book.

I can’t even remember the last time there wasn’t something immediate and pressing in my life. Today was all about laid back joy. And a joy it was, until the sudden, urgent and immediate visit to a ” doc in the box ” care center for a dear one that was struggling with a serious temperature spike. Okay, never a dull moment, and a reminder that we should never get tooooooo comfortable because life is gonna throw you a crazy loop or two.

When I heard this song, I took a moment. It was the vocals that drew me in and then the lyrics, and I can’t get enough of it.

Listen…

If I could make amends
With all my shadows
I’d bow my head
And welcome them
But I feel it burning
Like when the winter wind
Stops my breathing Are you really going to love me
When I’m gone
I fear you won’t
I fear you don’t And it echoes when I breathe
Until all you’ll see
Is my ghost
Empty vessel, crooked teeth
Wish you could see
And they call me under
And I’m shaking like a leaf
And they call me under
And I wither underneath
In this storm I am a stranger
I am an alien
Inside a structure
Are you really going to love me
When I’m gone
With all my thoughts
And all my faults
I feel it biting
I feel it break my skin
So uninviting

Are you really going to need me
When I’m gone
I fear you won’t
I fear you don’t

And it echoes when I breathe
Until all you see is my ghost
Empty vessel, crooked teeth
Wish you could see
And they call me under
And I’m shaking like a leaf
And they call me under
And I wither underneath
In this storm

I feel it
And they call me under
And I’m shaking like a leaf
And they call me underneath
To this storm

The new album from Of Monsters and Men, “Beneath The Skin” comes out on June 9th. This song, “I Of The Storm”, has lovely lyrics, a lovely voice, and is a really lovely song. There is so much to love, right?
Counting all of my blessings right now, how ’bout you?
