Dawn breeze brushed my cheek and I knew what I had to leave Dawn chorus
Came on glorious all wrapped up in your sheets Beneath the noise there was
Silence
And what was left was ours to surprise us
And you could say that you could say that you could say that it was my
Knowing But I never knew, no I never knew, no I never knew where this would
Be going
All the stories people tell and all the tales I heard from myself
It's best you know or else get told the soft flesh that beats 'neath your
Breast Beneath the noise there's only silence
And all that's left comes on to surprise us
And you could blame it you could blame it
You could blame it on my knowing
But I never knew, no I never knew,
No I never knew where this would be going
I was lonely as the moon who longs for the sun to come by
I'd wait and wait and wait and wait but never seem to share the same sky
Beneath the noise there was always silence
But what is left comes on to surprise us
And I could say that I could swear that I could swear that it was my
Knowing But I never knew, no I had no clue, no I never knew, where this
Would be going

sweet, like real maple sugar. An acquired taste?

this song got my attention right away. Immediate 7 with room to move up. Funny how her music elicits such strong responses, positive and negative. I always like her voice even is i don't necessarily like the song.


 

I bumped your approval rating. Music DOES elicit responses....

Her style in this song is so far from a natural vibrato that it's really irritating.
Sorry for those who like it, but all opinions are valid (apart from the insulting ones), and it would be pretty tedious  reading if every comment was " Oooh lovely !"
I love this station and respect the eclectic nature of the selection.
Part of the pleasure is being able to express our opinions - which along with the ratings hopefully have some bearing on the playlist. 
 
Maybe we ought to kneel during the anthem in support of those who express their controversial opinions on the Radio Paradise Comments section
Although these vocals may be a bit contrived, I love the quality of her voice and most of her songs.
The album was recorded in Portland, OR , so naturally  I really like this song. 
It's ok when she's not singing. 

^ Joke!

There's a quaver in her voice which is quite endearing and gives it a certain character, quite like this.

Sheesh!, the short attention span of folks these days is hard to handle.  "I'll die if I am forced to listen thru this 4 minute song to get to the next one."  Boo-hoo.  Oh... the drama.

 

Yeah, I am gettin' tired of all these negative commenters here.  {#Shifty}

Neither do I. I hate this style. Bye for now, see you when she stops singing...

Sorry 
liking all this stuff from the new beth orton cd. missed her.
The more I listen to this album, the more I like it.

It's not got as many catchy riffs as some of her earlier albums, yet I like it as much.  While the production is less complicated (no electronica), the tunes themselves are more sophisticated, more mature.

Good stuff.
I'm glad to hear some new music from Beth!
Glad to hear some tunes off of Beth's new album on here.

Glad she's back making music.
