208: Music Box: Skinny Love by Birdy

I have been listening to this song lately. I cannot say how much I love this song. I really appreciate Bon Iver's composition but Birdy's version has that melancholy touch. Her version spoke volumes of a sad story about a relationship in shaky grounds. I thought it was a perfect rendition to the original.

Here, enjoy:

I tell my love to wreck it all 
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall 
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my 
Right in the moment this order's tall 

And I told you to be patient 
And told you to be fine 
And I told you to be balanced 
And I told you to be kind 
In the morning I'll be with you 
But it will be a different "kind" 
I'll be holding all the tickets 
And you'll be owning all the fines 


And now all your love is wasted? 
And then who the hell was I? 
And now I'm breaking at the britches 
And at the end of all your lines 

Who will love you? 
Who will fight? 
Who will fall far behind? 


*sigh* isn't that just beautiful? I love how the song ended with a high pitch "come on skinny love" like how desperate, how frustrated the lines were.

The execution was impeccable, as the emotion in the song was just as much.
