I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that's true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth
You live your life
You go in shadows
You'll come apart and you'll go blind
Some kind of night into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what's not there.

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

A stranger's light comes on slowly
A stranger's heart without a home
You put your hands into your head
And then smiles cover your heart

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew
I think it's strange you never knew

amazing and lovely lyrics
enjoying reading the comments. Amazing how music can take you places.
A truly haunting song.  Whenever, the good Lord decides to take me, this will be played at my send off.

On a train from Berlin to Prague, 1994, to see a girl in the Czech countryside, this was on my headphones and while the arches and flowers of Dresden passed outside the window, my eyes were closed.
 

That is beautiful imagery for this soundtrack

4000 + reviews with an average over 8. That's why it gets played. Maybe if you ranked songs more often you would hear more of what you prefer. Maybe when you've been on a little bit longer you'll be willing to broaden your horizons.

This song is on WAYYYYYY too much.  I mean seriously, the song has 616 comments and it isn't a Beatles or Pink Floyd track.

Oddly, that has been brought up several thousand times in this comment thread. ยง
This lazy whining makes me think of a female counterpart to Radiohead, hope these two will never make a duet.
Jack White :P

This is one of the CDs my last girlfriend (before I finally found the ONE) brought to our relationship, and of course, with that laidback somewhat sultry voice and music, it was a favorite of ours to play during one of our favorite activities; based on those great memories, it still gets a 9 from me.  PEACE and Long Live RP!!

This is one of the images that I've created to support this great song on the slideshow.  If you can make similar images, please submit them to Mike V. or post them (or the makings) to the RPHD Flickr group.

Lots of Mazzy Star lately. Appreciating this more and more as a timeless classic.Takes me back to another time in my life and the world...definitely some things to miss.

This song is crazy good, really.
Stunning, truly stunning.  It's a 10.
Well,I needed to go to the store anyway.
Absolutely love this song. {#Meditate}
gettin kinda tired of this one
a song that tastes like a slice of sheep cheese with prosciutto on a wood-oven fired chunk of Swiss country bread, with a glass of Pinot Grigio.....absolutely perfect! 
I just don't get it.
Fantastic!! :O
Good song but PSD.
I'm disappointed.  From Men at Work's "Overkill" to this track it would have been perfect to segue to Blondie's moody "Fade Away and Radiate." Instead, My Morning Jacket's folksy acoustic "Librarian." Oh well, horses for courses.
Bill....any chance you will ever play that Jeff Crosby cover of this song you added to your library?
 {#High-five}
I have loved this song since I first heard it way back when in the 90's...gazing at the ridge....a good love making song for sure.

Ppl complaining about it being played too much but still has an 8.2 rating so most of us like it a lot.

I agree but so far I don't mind

 
I don't mind either.
Loved it when it came out and still do.  A little (but only a little!) like a US alternative to The Cocteau Twins.

Got to Mazzy Star via Rain Parade and the so-called Paisley Underground bands (Green on Red, Long Ryders etc).  Would be good to hear some of that on RP...

I have been mesmerized by Hope Sandoval's ethereal voice since I first heard it on RP, about a year ago. It opened a whole new genre for me to explore. I easily rate it an instant classic, of any decade. And the mellow electric country styling's of the guitar driven band makes their sound pretty much unique. They remind me of a laid back, 70's Keith Richards band, with a sultry, mysterious and lovely singer. I lose myself in this song. Hearing their other tracks is always welcome as well.
I had never heard of Mazzy Star until I heard  this song on radio Paradise about a week ago. After that I bought  about 20 songs off five albums and have been listening to that continuously ever since. I'm going crazy, but I still can't stop!  Trying to get information about Hope Sandoval and the band is a journey in its own rite, extremely  enigmatic, secretive and mysterious… 
I do like this. But it is getting a bit ......regular 
Always feel great when you play this song!   Thanks.{#Roflol}

It's an extremely common folk music progression.

Despite making Aime Mann sound like Flourence and the Machine, I quite like this kind of mellow delivery. Few others do it so well.

I've tired of this really quickly, which is a surprise cos I was really fond of it when I first came across it.


Bill really loves his Mazzy..
I like this subtly beautiful song...it fades into me.

Emotional range:  A to B.  Kind of like a dial tone.
Must be generational.  Puts me to sleep.  A deep sleep.  One that I may never wake up from.  Ever.
this song has never grown old for me. 
nice song!

You know, I like this song as much as anybody. (Ditto, Sarah's "Possession".) But landsakes, do we have to listen to these 2 songs every OTHER day...?

(Maybe it's just my bad luck to always be listening when it plays.)

RP needs to put this one on hiatus for a year or two.
{#Hearteyes}  {#Chillpill}  {#Yes}
Yet another RP Favorite that graces my Chill Set…thanks, Bill & Rebecca. ~C
Ridiculously good. This track is just ethereal...
 
Somehow as this intro played following Dylan's Shelter From The Storm I thought we were getting a trippy version of Knockin' on Heaven's Door. I've known Fade Into You for years, but for a split second it felt like something fresh and familiar all at once.
Smooth...

This is a nice tune, but it's way overplayed on RP.

              {#Good-vibes} ....   a beautiful sound
This is the song that introduced me to MS many years ago. I used to have an alternative radio show on public radio on the Central Coast of California. Played this album a lot. Hope I introduced it to others.

"Among My Swan" is one of the best make-out albums of all time! There is a sense of tenderness intertwined with desperation being pursued by a glimmer of hope.



 
the lyrics are absolutely beautiful.

Saying a song is overplayed makes no sense. You have complete control, hit the PSD button if you are over it.  You never need hear any song twice ever again, just keep hitting PSD.  I love hear it. Play it everyday as far as I am concerned.

This seems thoroughly immune to the passing of time. What makes some songs like that?
Was overplayed in my part of the world, in its time.  Stands up well, though, and easier to appreciate some ~20 years later.

Move to WV and I guarantee you will never hear it again (except on RP).
Still love this and I can't believe the release date. Just goes to show that quality music is timeless {#Sleep}

not sure.... 'Falling' has a decidedly spooky feel, whilst the Mazzy Star song is like slipping into a warm bath.  I feel the jolt of  spookiness after the warmth of that song would be too much!!
Over played!

Both songs are so dreamily deliciously soothing.

True.  Bill, what do you say?
Love that California cool...and the lead singer is just adorable.
 SUBLIME.  As good as it gets so it's a 10
I've probably made this comment before, but........I will never ever tire of this song.
 
 
I ended my novel with it.   
OMG this playlist tonite is making me moist... ;)
bumped it up from an 8 to a 9 - can't stop listening to this song on my IPOD, thanks RP!
Beautiful set of music this afternoon.  Thank you,RP.  You add joy to life.

10.  wife had this album on on our first date 15 years ago.  i've always wondered if i really love the song or the fact that it takes me back to that night.
  
I often wonder the same thing, and have decided it doesn't matter which cause brings on the good effect.

Neil Young to Mazzy Star... inspired. Nice!
