Beautiful Indian Music
4:30am, I’m awake again..
It’s been 10 years and this song is still very dear to me. Above and Beyond – Can’t Sleep. It has a depth to it that is hard to explain, it’s not a normal radio trance song that is lacking soul and emotion. The melody, the transition and the lyrics – all melt together to an amazing and beautiful track. If you haven’t heard it, or don’t listen to trance, which I don’t do much anymore, still, give it a try – it’s worth it. Some of the lyrics are posted below together with a link to the track on Youtube.
Four thirty A.M, I’m awake again
Singing to the dark through open eyes
While dreaming I see only you and me
Stuck between desire and compromise
If I said I want you back I’d be a liar
There’s nothing left of us to long for anymore
But inside the ashes burns an endless fire
And every night I can’t help reaching out for more
And I can’t sleep… You’re so far away from me
You’re leaving me scars scattered in my heart
A road map of all the places you have been
And I can’t escape, can’t wash this away
Love has burned your mark so deep within
Young and Beautiful
I rarely listen to new pop music, but this song really got stuck in my heart. It’s so beautiful, I love the instrumental tunes, lyrics and her sweet voice. I heard a guy singing this in Swedish Idol last night and he was also pretty good, but when I heard this original afterwards it was of course even more magnificent. This song makes me want to sing a cover of it and have it recorded… It’s bittersweet and actually quite romantic as well, even though the melody makes me think of a sad song. Check it out below if you haven’t heard it before.
