one day will see quickly did back then.
Old friend,
you're still my old friend.

No deserters
remember the music you meet
knows who around
became a deserter.

One day will meet and no one will cry
one day I won't ask why
old friend,
you're still my old friend.

All deserts
amongst those friends that you knew
all gave the word
all deserters now, mhhm.

Post Goth. Lovely.
Up late, after a long shift and beer and billiards, upon sitting down and relaxing, this thing can send me to Infinity & Beyond and I like it!

Very nice.  Solid 7 with this first listen. 
Bill and another great segue....just flowed seamlessly from Tori to this dreamy escape.

They don't seem like very "obscure" lyrics to me, but I think the arrangement and mood of this song is not overly concerned with lyrics anyhow.

If RP's inventory of young women singing dreamy, haunting songs were reduced by half, would anyone know the difference?
What a haunting piece! I love what's going on with the piano and her voice... Dreamy... Surreal... I feel like hearing it was a rare treat...
Great music!
Quite the letdown after hearing Love Reign Over Me.

Thank you so much, JIan...  I hope you are having a marvelous day right this minute...

I really really like the piano work on this song, and the melody is haunting...  everybody in my church demands that I give this song a big 10, so I will acquiesce to their request...  this is a beautiful song...

Wow....that relaxed me to the point of nirvana almost.

From the video posted below, she sings this on a windy full-moon night, and does the twist.
This tune has a simple melody and arpeggio-like minimalist backdrop that I find enchanting and captivating... made me sit up and take notice.  Don't know this artist. Thank you RP.

Sounds like it belongs in a David Lynch film (a la Twin Peaks).
Very Nice!

Very nice!
Very Enya-like. Which is fine, because.........I miss her.


Decent piano work...  nice mood music melody...  but it relies a little too much on studio production rather than musical notes...  hmmmm... I'll leave it unrated for now...
 
Nice.
Excellent choice to follow Tori Amos's Seven Sisters.
Both seem to fit (or perhaps create) my mood on this Sunday evening.
